Wellness exams are routine visits to Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health. People of all ages should schedule these exams so your provider can track your health over time.
What goes on during a wellness exam depends on your age and your health history. A member of the staff will ask for any relevant updates on your health since your last visit. That is a good time to mention any symptoms you’re experiencing or health concerns.
A wellness exam generally includes:
Children, especially toddlers and babies, will have slightly different measurements taken during their wellness checks. For example, a measurement of head circumference helps evaluate growth progress in babies.
The wellness visit is also a time to get any necessary lab services, like blood tests or an EKG, and vaccinations. If you need an advanced screening, such as a mammogram or colonoscopy, the Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health staff can schedule it for you.
You should visit Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health about once per year for a wellness exam. If you have a young child or have chronic disease, these wellness exams may need to be scheduled more often.
If you need a physical for your child (or yourself) for school or a sports team, the team can provide that and fill out any necessary paperwork.
You may only think of visiting the doctor when you’re feeling unwell or struggling with a known illness, but making an appointment when you feel fine is essential.
Regular wellness exams help you:
Many chronic conditions, like hypertension and Type 2 diabetes, don’t show obvious symptoms. You may not even realize you need medical attention until you reach a crisis state. By scheduling regular wellness exams, you can identify potential health problems that you’re not even aware you have.
