What Are Annual Exams?

The best offense is a strong defense. Our primary care providers want to see you when you are healthy, not just when you are sick. Annual exams, or wellness checks, are a type of preventive care performed by a physician to evaluate your overall health. During an annual exam, your physician assesses your well-being and health habits, and recommends treatment or lifestyle changes to maintain your optimal health. Visiting your primary care provider for an annual check-up allows your physician to identify and catch potential health complications before they become a concern.
