Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center Reviews
A friendly, effective, and efficient visit. Highly recommend.
Being Autistic, this is my first experience on my own with a Doctor's Office from Finding to Appointment. I can say, without a doubt that I really like the staff, they explained when I asked and I truly look forward to returning. I even enjoyed all my staff interactions. Especially when my veins were difficult to locate, the staff member trying was extra attentive to my request to not fish and did a fantastic job, like the rest of the staff I encountered. I look forward to my next visit and believe this is where my care is best done.
He made sure to give me a Blood Lab . Good Doctor
Dr. Armstrong was very kind and had great communication skills He was extremely cautious and thoughtful of his plan I would 100% recommend him I seriously hate reviewing anything but he deserves a shout out
Great experience! I plan to make Dr. Armstrong my new primary care physician.

Preventive Health Screening FAQs
Why is preventive health screening important?
Preventive health screening is essential for several reasons:
- Early Detection: It can detect health conditions at an early stage when they may be more treatable and manageable.
- Health Promotion: Screenings can identify risk factors, allowing individuals to make lifestyle changes that promote better health.
- Cost-Effectiveness: Early detection and intervention may prevent the development of more serious and costly health conditions.
At what age should preventive health screenings begin?
The age at which preventive health screenings should begin depends on the specific screening and individual risk factors. For example, blood pressure monitoring often starts in childhood, whereas mammograms and colorectal cancer screenings typically begin at specific ages (e.g., 40 or 50 years old). Our team in Chandler, AZ can advise you on when to start various screenings based on your health status and age.
What should I do if a screening test shows an abnormal result?
If a screening test indicates an abnormal result, it does not necessarily mean you have a health condition. Further testing and evaluation may be needed to confirm the findings. We can help guide you through any additional testing or treatment if necessary.
