Welcome to WFP Online!
interactive and informative
Hello :-) A friendly greeting is what you've come to expect from all of us at Watertown Family Practice. We're glad to now extend that to you through our website as well. Our goal is to provide you with convenient access to the reliable information you need.
"An ounce of prevention. . .
Is worth a pound of cure"
If you're like me, you wait until your car makes a funny noise before you take it to the mechanic. You wait until you're blinded by wintery road slush in the middle of a snow storm before you think to check the windshield washer fluid. And, if you're like me, you change your oil every 20,000+ miles whether it needs it or not. Thank goodness we don't neglect our bodies like that! or do we?
Exaggeration aside, like automobiles, our bodies need routine maintenance to ensure they operate smoothly. This health maintenance includes regular check-ups, vaccinations, and cancer screenings. It also includes reducing modifiable risk factors (cholesterol, obesity, tobacco use, etc.) to decrease your risk of stroke, cancer, and heart disease. At Watertown Family Practice we work with you to keep your health maintenance on schedule.
