Wellness Check-Ups and Visits— Preventative Care for Your Health
As practitioners of family medicine and internal medicine, we focus on the health of the individual and the family as a whole. We want to build lasting and ongoing relationships with our patients in order to provide the most comprehensive medical care. Part of this is getting to know you over a long period of time. Regular wellness checks and frequent visits can help us to do just that.
What is a Wellness Check-Up?
Similar to the yearly physical, a wellness check-up or visit entails preventative care that’s aimed to look at various aspects of your health. Dr. Lentzou and our experienced physicians and internists want to ensure you live a healthy life year-round.
Wellness exams are annual and comprehensive. They are designed to catch any problems early, detect changes, track progress, or look for symptoms that might indicate a problem down the road.
A wellness check-up is different from what is often called a problem visit. If you are experiencing symptoms or have a current health problem, then the visit will likely be focused and geared towards finding out the problem.
What Does a Typical Wellness Visit Consist Of?
A regular wellness visit can vary depending on your medical history and past issues. Our physicians might focus on a particular area if you’ve had some kind of history of health concerns in the past or had some kind of lifestyle change that might warrant a more focused approached. Generally speaking, however, the wellness exam will entail several things including:
- Review of health history
- Height and weight
- Blood pressure
- Heart exam
- Lung exam
- Eyesight check
- Checking on chronic conditions
- Checking thyroid, abdomen, and lymph nodes
- Suspicious moles or skin lesions
