Most people only visit the doctor when they’re already sick. However, getting preventative care services is just as important when it comes to keeping you healthy.
Haley Family Practice provides comprehensive preventative care services to current and new patients in the Carbondale, PA area. These services include:
Regular checkups and screenings can alert your physician to health problems while they’re still treatable.
It is highly important for infants and children to be immunized, to protect them from dangerous and common illnesses like measles, mumps, and whooping cough. Keep your child healthy by making sure he or she gets all of the recommended vaccines on schedule.

The flu is a highly contagious illness you can catch at any age.

Infants, children, older adults, pregnant women, and people with respiratory disease are at great risk of serious problems due to influenza.
