A big part of taking good care of your health is keeping up with preventive services. These services encompass things such as screening tests (like pap smears, colonoscopies, etc.), counseling talks, and medicines to take to prevent disease. Not all preventative services are needed for all patients, and, as more research is done, the timing or necessity of these services changes. Dr. Lucas keeps up on the most up-to-date developments from the leading authorities so she can offer guidance to her patients on what services are needed to prevent illness and improve your health and wellness.
