Proper diet and exercise and wise lifestyle choices are vital to good health. Just as important is receiving preventive care to discover potential health issues as early as possible and take steps so they don’t turn into something serious. When it comes to preventive care in Las Vegas, the practice to see is Kohn Medical & Weight Loss.
What Is Preventive Care?
Preventive care refers to physical examinations that assess a person’s health and look for possible disease, as well as providing treatments to manage or prevent any potential health issues that are discovered. The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is as true today as it has ever been. It is often much easier to prevent disease from happening than to manage it once it has gone untreated for too long.
Preventive care helps us catch problems early so we can treat them before they get difficult to control.

Kohn, MD is an extremely experienced and gifted family medicine practitioner with countless patients, both men and women of varying ages, entrusting themselves to his care.

Wellness exams are critical in preventing health conditions because they allow Dr. Kohn to catch signs of problems in their earliest stages. He uses wellness exams to assess your overall health and evaluate your risk factors for chronic disease. Regular wellness exams are also a time to catch up on screening tests for issues such as high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and some cancers. Dr. Kohn also uses the wellness exam as a time to listen to you and discuss any concerns you might have about your health. To schedule a wellness exam, submit our online scheduling form or call us at 702-602-5463.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast used to detect breast cancer early. Mammograms can detect the presence of breast cancer up to three years before you can actually feel it through a self-examination. Call us at 702-602-5463 to talk to Dr. Kohn about having your mammogram done in our comfortable location at Kohn Medical & Weight Loss.
A colonoscopy is a procedure in which a tube with a camera is inserted into the rectum in order to view the colon or large intestine. It is used to screen for colon cancer, look for polyps, or explore the potential causes of symptoms like rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation. Dr. Kohn is fully qualified to perform colonoscopies in our Las Vegas office. Contact Kohn Medical & Weight Loss at 702-602-5463 for more details.
