Preventative medical care is crucial to your good health and wellness. There is no reason to forego routine medical checks and tests. By staying ahead of your health care, and keeping up with your annual exams and tests, you can prevent disease. Four out of the five leading causes of death are caused by chronic diseases that are either preventable or likely to be manageable with regular access to healthcare.

Dr. Marc Rabinowitz discusses a new therapeutic, specifically addressing Covid-19 infections.
About the Covid-19 Medication Paxlovid.
~PAXLOVID™ (PF-07321332; ritonavir) was found to reduce the risk of hospitalization or death by 89% compared to placebo in non-hospitalized high-risk adults with COVID-19 (*Pfizer website statistic)
“Paxlovid is an oral antiviral pill that can be taken at home to help keep high-risk patients from getting so sick that they need to be hospitalized. So, if you test positive for the coronavirus (and your doctor writes you a prescription), you can take pills at home and lower your risk of going to the hospital.
The drug, developed by Pfizer, appears to have a lot of positives: It had an 89% reduction in the risk of hospitalization and death in clinical trials, a number that was high enough to prompt the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to prioritize it over other COVID-19 treatments; it’s cheaper than many other COVID-19 drugs (it’s provided for free by the U.S. government while there is a public health emergency); and, perhaps most reassuring, it is expected to work against the Omicron variant.” (from Yale Medicine, December, 2021)
“Preventative medical care should never take a backseat, even during a pandemic.” Don’t put off your regular medical checks such as mammographies, colonoscopies, dermatological skin checks, etc. The medical community is making every effort to ensure you are safe when you go for these visits.
We cannot let our preventative health take a pass because we’re afraid to go see the doctor.
Do not be afraid or delay medical care if you need it due to fear of contracting coronavirus. People are waiting too long to get medical attention for other illnesses and issues which can sometime cause more severe problems. Please don’t hesitate to get medical care if you need it, as you would prior to the pandemic.
Contact 215-PREVENT if you are interested in learning more about our medical practice or want to make an appointment for a consultation.
See what steps Dr. Marc Rabinowitz and his team at Prevention First Healthcare are taking to keep patients safe (Coronavirus pandemic) during their office visits at their Southampton, PA Concierge Medical practice.. We want you to feel safe going to the doctor.
During this pandemic, Prevention First Healthcare is taking the appropriate steps to protect our patients as well as our staff.
Please review our Coronavirus/Covid-19 information for patients.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, alteration in taste or smell, body aches, headache, sore throat or diarrhea, please call the office at 215-PRE-VENT and we will direct you how to proceed. All patients are screened by phone before appointments are scheduled. In certain circumstances patients are evaluated while they remain in their car. Their temperature is taken and Covid-19 testing may be performed as well, via nasal swab.
Our office remains open to serve our patients with all of their healthcare needs as it always has. -We see one patient at a time, with no one in the waiting room. -Our patients are given a mask and gloves upon entry to the office. -The rooms are disinfected thoroughly between visits and all staff are practicing social distancing, washing hands, using hand sanitizer, and wearing masks & gloves. -We offer coronavirus antibody testing from blood samples. These are sent to either Lab Corp or Quest to ensure reliability.
It is important to see our patients In-Person. Many times the diagnosis of medical problems can only be made by performing a physical examination in conjunction with taking medical history. Often, just looking at a patient is an indication of how ill they may be. We are also continuing to coordinate ALL aspects of medical care by directly communicating with subspecialists and arranging appointments, even during this period of time where there is limited access to care.
We continue to provide after-hours care as I may be reached directly by my cell phone for urgent problems.
It remains our privilege at Prevention First Healthcare to care for the many people who trust us with the most important thing in their life, their health.
