We understand you lead a busy life, and health care does not always seem like a priority. At Novant Health Family Physicians Gastonia, it is our top priority. We strive to deliver the highest quality medical care to you regardless of your age or ailment. We are here when you need us. And, should you need more specialized care than our office can provide, we will get you to the resources you need and oversee your ongoing care.
The best time to see a doctor is when you are well. Novant Health Family Physicians Gastonia offers annual physical exams and other well-patient checkups to help you stay healthy. This gives you a chance to discuss any concerns with your provider and gives your provider a chance to catch any health problems before they become larger concerns.
Annual physical exams often include:
- A review of your health history.
- A check of height, weight and blood pressure.
- A check of heart and lung function.
- A test of reflexes.
- A check of your skin for abnormalities.
- Blood and urine lab tests.
- Time to ask questions.
Female patients can rely on our providers for complete gynecologic care; there is no need for a separate appointment with a gynecologist for routine care.
When you are sick or injured, you want help quickly. You can skip a trip to urgent care when you choose to see a provider in our office. We reserve same-day and next-day appointments for sick or injured patients whenever possible. We even have Saturday hours so you can see a provider on a weekend. Whether you need care for a sore throat or stitches for a cut, you can get the care you need from a provider you trust.
