Annual Screenings

Two fundamental goals of a well-functioning healthcare system are preventing disease and helping patients maximize their health.

Our busy work and family lives often keep us from seeing our primary care providers on a regular basis. Still, annual health screenings are vital for preventative health for people of all ages, even if you are feeling healthy. Early detection is critical when treating chronic conditions such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. By scheduling an annual health screening, you have the opportunity to take control of your health and establish a baseline with your healthcare provider to make shared decisions.

Deciding which health screening to conduct is usually based on the information you give your healthcare provider, so it is important to discuss your complete health history with your healthcare provider at every visit.

Some tests are age and gender-specific. Understanding these tests and when to ask for them can help you stay on top of your overall health.

Below is a guide to health screenings, organized by age and gender. Most screenings are covered by insurance and are recommended on an annual basis. A referral is needed for some tests and screenings, so work with your primary healthcare provider to set up the proper health screenings and appointments needed.

If you need to establish a primary care provider, call (985) 230-2778 or visit for a list of North Oaks Health System primary care providers and schedule your appointment.
