Statistics show that men are less likely than women to see a healthcare provider for annual exams and screenings which could explain the reason why men, on average, live about 7 years less than women do in the United States. Men need a game plan when it comes to preventative health just as much as women do.
Preventative health care for men is very different than for women, as one might expect. Men’s preventative healthcare specifically includes screening for problems such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and heart screening. Heart disease is the highest cause of death for men currently in the United States. Preventative health exams screen for health risks before they become serious, even deadly issues. Dr. Goff, a leading preventative care doctor, provides preventative medicine services to men throughout the Dallas area.

How often should men schedule a preventative medicine appointment?
Determining how often a male should have a preventative medicine check-up depends on a variety of factors such as age, family history and medical history. It is recommended that most adult men schedule a preventive care checkup at least once a year, however, depending on certain health conditions, Dr. Goff may recommend more or less preventative health care screening and testing.
