Health Maintenance Q & A

What is health maintenance?

Health maintenance is the focus of Dr. Roberts and his team at Family Medical Practice of the Treasure Coast. Health maintenance is a personalized health care plan that emphasizes disease prevention and nurturing habits that protect your health throughout your lifetime.

Health maintenance is an active effort to decrease risk factors, protect against illness, and avoid the symptoms and complications of acute and chronic disease. Health maintenance plans are unique for men, women, and children and are created specifically for each patient under Dr. Roberts’ care.

Health maintenance plans are for healthy children and adults who want to care for and protect their health, and not for treating specific diseases. By following your health maintenance plan, you improve your chances of avoiding illness and premature death.
