Abstract

The primary care physician is bombarded with recommendations regarding health screening and preventive services. Often, these recommendations and guidelines are in conflict. This article will not settle these debates; however, it will provide an overview of recommendations for screening in nongynecologic areas and a framework on how to evaluate conflicting recommendations to give reasonable guidance to patients.
