Adult Family Care Q & A

What is adult family care?

Adult family care provides all-inclusive medical services to people 18 and older. The team at Dunia Health Clinic offers a variety of care options to keep people healthy and disease-free.

You don’t have to be sick to benefit from adult family care. Visiting the team at Dunia Health Clinic at least once a year is one of the easiest ways to identify (and treat) potentially serious health conditions before they get worse.

What services does adult family care provide?

At Dunia Health Clinic, the team offers a variety of adult family care services, including:

Physical exams

A physical exam provides an assessment of your physical and neurological health. During an exam, your provider checks your weight and blood pressure, looks at your skin for any unusual growths, gently palpates your organs, and shines a light in your ears, eyes, nose, and throat.

If anything appears abnormal, your provider can order additional laboratory tests or screening procedures.

Diagnostic imaging

Diagnostic imaging is a group of procedures that use cutting-edge technologies to capture photos of your bones, joints, and soft tissues. Depending on your needs, the team might recommend X-rays, ultrasound, an MRI, or a CT scan.

Laboratory testing

Laboratory testing analyzes samples of your bodily fluids, like blood or saliva. This type of testing can identify underlying health conditions invisible to the eye, like hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, or high cholesterol. 

Immunizations

Immunizations are shots or nasal sprays that teach your immune system to identify and destroy viruses, bacteria, and other harmful invaders. The type of immunizations that will most benefit you depend on your age, medical history, and general health.

DOT physicals

A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is a medical exam that determines if you’re healthy enough to drive a commercial vehicle. If you operate a bus, truck, or another large piece of commercial equipment, you’re required by law to undergo a DOT exam every two years.

Preventive screenings

Preventive screenings try to detect potentially serious conditions in their early stages when they best respond to treatment. Some of the most common types of preventive screenings include Pap tests, digital rectal exams (DREs), and colonoscopy.

When should I make an adult family care appointment?

The team at Dunia Health Clinic recommends making an adult family care appointment once a year, especially if you’re 50 or older. As you age, you also become more susceptible to heart disease and certain types of cancer. Routine check-ups can keep you healthy for years to come.
