Benefits of Wellness Exams

As kids, many of us went to the doctors for our annual wellness exams, but as we grow older we tend to overlook and skip these exams. Your annual wellness exam is very important and only grows more important as you age. These exams also allow you to get the necessary health screenings and services that help you understand yourr general health standing.

When you get your annual wellness exam done, it allows you to get a glimpse of your overall health and you can see what changes need to be made to live a longer and healthier life. Things that are included in most annual exams include blood pressure screenings, cholesterol screenings, weight management, medications, vaccinations, mental health screenings, and information gathered on substance use (if any) among several other important health checks. 

Your primary care physician will report and consult with you on the results of your exam and, if needed, help guide you on how to make the necessary changes to lead a better life. By catching anomalies in screenings or from the information gathered in the pre-exam questionnaires, you’ll stay in front of conditions like hypertension, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, or cancer. This could allow you, if you listen to the physician, to take precautions and make lifestyle changes now, to prevent unfortunate outcomes from happening down the road.

Here at AFC, we do more than just your run of the mill urgent care, in fact we provide a multitude of wellness services.
