Annual wellness exams, also known as routine check-ups, are medical appointments that individuals schedule with their healthcare provider on a yearly basis to monitor their overall health and well-being. During an annual wellness exam at CardinaLight Health, our provider will conduct a physical exam, including measuring height, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate and will also ask questions about your medical history, lifestyle, and any current symptoms or concerns you may have.
Depending on the individual’s age, sex, and health status, our provider may also recommend certain screenings or tests, such as blood work to check for illnesses such as diabetes or high cholesterol, or cancer screenings such as mammograms or colonoscopies.
The purpose of an annual wellness exam is to identify any health concerns early on and to work with you or your family member to develop a plan to address any issues and maintain good health. It is also an opportunity for individuals to discuss any health-related questions or concerns they may have with their healthcare provider.
