Why is it necessary to get an ANNUAL PHYSICAL/ WELLNESS EXAM?
Getting a yearly checkup is important in maintaining good health.
Regular health exams, tests and screenings can help find problems before they start. These routine exams can help identify hidden conditions that often don’t become apparent until serious disease related symptoms appear as in the case of diabetes and high blood pressure. An annual exam will also help identify an individual’s specific risk factors (age, diet, lifestyle habits, family history) for disease. Once your risk factors have been identified, your health care provider can provide information and counseling on disease prevention related to those risk factors. By getting the right health services, screenings, and treatments, you are taking steps that help your chances for living a longer, healthier life.
