Beaver's Preventive Care Task Force developed booklets and screening guidelines to help you take charge of your health care. Our doctors/ providers follow a program of preventive care, based on recommendations by the US Preventive Services Task Force. Beaver's Task Force encourages you to ask your personal physician or physician extender about the recommendations in the guide. Together you can design a program of preventive health care suited to your particular needs.

Beaver Medical Group follows the recommendations of the US Preventive Care Task force which are generated by the healthfinder.gov tool. Beaver's task force also recommends two additional preventive care items:
1) Skin exams are recommended during physical exams as skin cancer is more likely in Southern California.
2) Discuss mammograms with women ages 40-50 to decide whether or not to begin mammograms before the age of 50.
