Due to the typically high cost of these preventive tests, many physicians will only order them when a patient is showing apparent symptoms. Since many conditions including heart disease may develop without any outward symptoms, it is important to identify disease even before symptoms appear.

Regular preventive testing is important as abnormal health conditions can manifest or intensify with time. The recommended frequency of testing is based on your personal risk factors and past preventive tests results. Yearly preventive health tests will also complement your regular physicals. It is important to take into account your health risk factors and previous preventive health tests results when making a decision.
