An easy and important way to stay healthy is to get disease prevention and early detection services. Disease prevention and early detection services can keep you from getting certain diseases or can help you find health problems early, when treatment works best.

Talk with your doctor or health care provider to find out what tests or other services you may need, and how often you need them to stay healthy.

Take charge of your health!

The myhealthfinder provides you with personalized recommendations for clinical preventive services based on your age, sex, and pregnancy status. You may enter the information for yourself or someone you are caring for.

 

 

The myhealthfinder recommendations come from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) as advised by organizations including the American Academy of Pediatrics (through the Bright Futures cooperative agreement) and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine). The Affordable Care Act requires most insurance plans to cover these preventive services at no cost to you.

The myhealthfinder tool is maintained by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

    Celebrating 13 years serving Florida

     

    Mobile Physician Services – Celebrating 13 years of service in Florida.

    Mobile Physician Services (MPS) brings the doctor’s office to the comfort and convenience of your home. We specialize in delivering primary and specialty medical care for medically complex, chronically ill, and homebound patients. We take the time to get to know you – and provide care to address all of your needs. MPS is a Medicare-approved provider, and we accept most insurance plans and self-pay. 

    MPS was established in 2006 to fill an unmet need for medical care among patients who were unable to leave their homes or who had difficulty getting to a physician’s office. Often these patients had complex chronic conditions that required ongoing medical care. Without proper care, their condition would worsen, and the patients eventually would require emergency care or admission to a hospital – at a high cost to both patients and payers.

    At MPS, our approach centers around providing ongoing primary care with specialty services as needed. This enables us to monitor patients’ conditions and address problems before they become urgent, reducing the need for emergency care and hospital admission and improving patients’ quality of life.

    Headquartered in New Port Richey, Florida, our practice continues to grow each year. In addition to providing in-home services, we also work with assisted living facilities and hospitals to provide ongoing or post-procedure care.

    Glaucoma Awareness Month

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. People are often unaware that glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages.

    If detected early, before noticeable vision loss occurs, glaucoma can usually be controlled and severe vision loss can often be prevented. Vision that is lost from glaucoma cannot be restored.

    Anyone can get glaucoma, but those at higher risk include:

    • African Americans over age 40
    • Everyone over age 60, especially Hispanics/Latinos
    • People with a family history of the disease

    You could have Glaucoma and not even know it. Don’t wait until you notice changes to your vision. If you’re at higher risk for glaucoma, visit an eye care professional for a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least every one to two years. For more information about Glaucoma click here.
