The exam is also known as "Wellness check". It is recommended at least once a year, especially in people over the age of 40.
You do not have to be sick to schedule a wellness check.
Based on your age and family history, there are certain blood tests required and other testing to screen for cancer and other serious diseases.
You need to bring any previous test results and a list of all medications you take. It is a good idea to write down some questions you have as well.
We recommend you download our new patient form and fill it at home. That will make your visit more efficient and save you time.
After the appointment, we will follow up with you by a phone call or email. We will provide you with a copy of your results.
We will point out abnormalities and adjust your medication or start a new medicine.
For more serious or issues that need further tetings or referrals, we will ask you to schedule a follow up appointment.
