Getting an annual medical checkup at all ages is incredibly important for men. Fewer men go to their doctors for preventative care than women, a fact that is reflected in men’s lower life expectancy.
I’m Not Sick… Do I Really Need to See a Doctor?
However, many men still believe that they do not need to visit the doctor unless they are seriously ill. The idea that you only need to go to the doctor if you’re sick is unwise. The reality is that the two top causes of death in men, heart disease and cancer, are much easier to treat if they are identified early. Routine diagnostic screenings for these and other diseases are crucial to providing early interventions and improving outcomes.

Here at Mind Body Spirit Care Integrative Medical Center in Tampa, we understand the nuances of men’s health. Based on years of multidisciplinary experience, we have developed a comprehensive and holistic examination and assessment process that looks at the man as a whole person, not just a list of symptoms.
