What is Preventive Medicine?
When it comes to living a healthy, happy, and long life, prevention is key. This comes with understanding your body and eliminating obvious risks from your lifestyle, such as smoking, obesity, and excessive consumption of alcohol. Another way to manage the impact of certain health conditions is to stay on top of your yearly physicals so any underlying issues or potential causes for concern can be addressed quickly and effectively. Preventing diseases and other complications before they can impact your health is the goal of Dr. Kelly L. McKerahan and his team. At our office in Murrieta, CA, we conduct blood tests and genetic diagnostics, assess your medical history, and perform physical examinations for patients of all ages.
