Immunizations and Preventive Care

Services

Preventive care helps to keep you healthy and identify problems early, while they are easier to treat. A typical preventive care exam – often referred to as a physical or well visit – includes:

  • A physical exam
  • Height, weight and BMI
  • Blood pressure check
  • Screening for common health problems
  • Healthy lifestyle coaching
  • Immunizations

Preventive care appointments are important for everyone, but the type of clinician you see depends on your life stage and individual needs and preferences.

  • Internal Medicine: Provides annual physicals, acute care and ongoing health maintenance for adults ages 18 and older.
  • Family Medicine: Provides primary care for adults and children – your entire family can see the same clinician.
  • Internal Medicine – Pediatrics: Provides primary care for adults and children with a medical professional who is certified and trained in both specialties. 
  • Pediatrics: Specializes in caring for children from birth to age 21. Park Nicollet has the largest pediatrics practice in the state.
  • Ob/Gyn: Specializes in obstetrics and gynecology, but also provides annual wellness exams and preventive care for women.

Talk to your clinician about how often to schedule your preventive care. Depending on your age, health history and individual risk factors, you may need additional screening tests. Visit our Caring for Kids, Caring for Women, and Caring for Men pages for details on the right care for you and your family.

Preventive care coverage
Most preventive services are 100 percent covered by insurance, and don’t require you to meet your annual deductible first. Please note that if other medical services are performed at your physical you could be charged for a separate office visit.

We feel it is important for your care team to fully understand your condition, so we encourage you to discuss any concerns at your visit. Please keep in mind that this discussion could lead to additional medical services being performed and additional charges.
