Types of Annual Visits with your Primary Care Provider

An Annual Physical 

An Annual Physical is an assessment of your body's health.  The purpose of this annual appointment is to identify any possible health problems.  A Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, or Physician Assistant uses their senses and medical expertise to gauge your body's performance. 

The provider will perform routine evaluations like listening to your heart and lungs to help inform their findings during your physical.  Your height, weight, and blood pressure along with respirations will be measured and recorded in a secure electronic record for comparison of previous results. Patients can access these results in their patient portal at any time.  Your physical is a great opportunity for you and your provider to review any recent blood work, and order necessary blood work. 

Additionally, an EKG, spirometry, or Diabetic Retinal exam glucose test may be performed in the office during your physical.  If the provider feels it would beneficial, additional testing outside the office such as a chest x ray, CT scan or other imagining may be ordered to help provide a greater understanding of your physical health.

A Wellness Visit

A Wellness Visit is an assessment of your overall health and wellbeing. The primary purpose is prevention, and this is done by either developing or updating your personal history and family history, recording medications and supplements, knowing what assistance you may need for your daily living, completing a risk factor assessment according to your abilities, resources, and health.

Your provider will develop a check list of screening tools that would benefit in keeping you healthy such as mammograms, colorectal screening, spirometry.  Your screening plan will be unique to you based on your history and age.  Based on your current needs, your provider can also help connect you to mind, body and spirit resources within and outside of our practice that may be of present benefit to your health & wellbeing.

A Well Child Exam

A Well Child Exam is composed of four different areas: 

  1. Health history
