Annual Wellness Exams Q & A

What is an Annual Wellness Exam?

An annual wellness exam is an essential part of your annual checkup. Your annual wellness exam is often used as an effective method to evaluate your health and risks. 

The specifics and details of your annual wellness exam depend on several factors, such as your sex, age, health concerns, and medical and family history. Your general annual wellness exam is recommended at least once a year to allow your Prominis Medical Services provider to develop a clearer picture of your overall health and health history.

What Can I Expect During My Annual Wellness Exam?

Most annual wellness exams start with a personal consultation and a discussion of your concerns, your medical and social history, and a review of your medications.

Your provider might suggest more specific testing and exams to check your: 

  • Skin health and complexion
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Cholesterol
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Certain chronic disease risk factors, such as gene mutations

 

Depending on the type of annual wellness exam, your Prominis provider might examine your reflexes, heart, and breathing for abnormalities. 

Following your evaluation, physical exam, and any necessary testing, the final part of your annual wellness visit might include a personalized plan to treat any newly diagnosed or existing medical conditions.

What are the Advantages of an Annual Wellness Exam?

Annual wellness exams offer a multitude of benefits, including:

  • Professional medical assistance in making decisions about your health
  • A clear explanation of your current health
  • Exam and test results that help create a timeline of your health
  • The medical support and guidance of a trusted provider you’re familiar with
  • Valuable information and education about a healthy lifestyle

 

Your annual wellness exam is your opportunity to ask questions, discuss your concerns, and stay up to date and in control of your health and wellness. 

Even if you’re healthy, your annual wellness exam is an integral part of your preventive care and allows you to evaluate and lower your risks of disease. A wellness exam allows your provider to detect abnormalities, such as a breast lump or heart murmur.
