Preventive Care Q&A
What is preventive care?
Why are annual physicals important to preventive care?
Through annual wellness checks, Our doctors can monitor your health not only through blood pressure readings, weight, and blood work, but also learn more about how your family, job, and emotional state may contribute to your overall health and wellness. We build lasting relationships with our patients, which helps us to understand and treat each patient wholly.
Annual physicals are also a chance for you to have a conversation with a doctor about any changes in your health or concerns you have. Our goal is to be your true partner in wellness.
What should I expect at my annual physical?
During your appointment, the doctor will check your height, weight, and blood pressure and note any changes from your last appointment. The doctor listens to your heart and lungs, and examines your eyes, ears, nose, and throat. The doctor will palpate your abdomen and lymph nodes to check for any swelling or abnormalities. If you are due for any other health screenings or need a vaccination booster, we can provide those services during your annual physical as well.
Most importantly, our doctors offer frank, but compassionate advice and suggestions to improve your health. If you are due for an annual physical, call to make an appointment today.
