Screening exams -
Routine annual physicals present on opportunity to screen for a number of preventable or treatable diseases.  Appropriate screening tests may reduce your risk for heart disease, diabetes, strokes, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and cervical cancer

Lung Disease -
Early detection and treatment of lung disease can dramatically improve your quality of life.  Burlington Family Practice offers on-site spirometry for the early detection of lung disease. 

Cardiac disease -
Prevention is the key for heart health.  The most effective means to prevent heart disease is early detection and treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure and metabolic disorders, such as diabetes and high cholesterol.  In addition to traditional cholesterol tests, Burlington Family Practice offers a comprehensive panel of blood tests to assess your risk for heart disease.  The Berkeley Heart Labs is a panel of 8 metabolic and genetic markers to provide a more thorough assessment for your risk

Sleep disorders -
 If you have difficulty staying awake during 'down' times, or if you just don't feel like you have the energy you used to have, you may have a sleep disorder.  The National Heart Lung and Blood Institutes estimates that sleep apnea affects 18 million Americans, many of whom are undiagnosed.   Untreated, sleep apnea increases your risk for diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and strokes.  Treatment for sleep apnea includes weight loss, medications, CPAP breathing machines, and surgery for some cases.  Burlington Family Practice offers risk assessments for your sleep disorders, and an on-site sleep lab certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine.   To evaluate your risk for sleep apnea, visit our Epworth Sleepiness Scale Calculator page.
