Annual Wellness Q & A

What is an annual wellness visit?

Annual wellness visits are a necessary preventive health measure. They enable your doctor to identify risks to your health and take steps to reduce them. Your doctor can also detect signs of disease early when they’re more easily treatable.

The AZZ Medical Associates team’s annual wellness visits are the ideal way to keep yourself healthy. Their primary care providers are experts in internal medicine who work with you to create a personalized care plan suited to your unique needs. Their goal is to help you enjoy a long, healthy life.

What does an annual wellness visit involve?

The AZZ Medical Associates team provides annual wellness visits to keep you healthy all year round. They review your medical history and complete a physical exam during your visit. This involves checking your weight, blood pressure, heartbeat, and breathing.

Your doctor looks for abnormalities like skin lesions, lumps, and infections. They also assess your movement and mental alertness. If you’re due for screenings like a Pap smear for cervical cancer or a prostate exam for prostate disease, your doctor can do these too.

The team also provides guidance and counseling on various health topics, including disease prevention. You can benefit from nutrition counseling to improve your diet, weight management services to help you lose or gain weight, and stress management counseling to help reduce your stress levels.

Your doctor then updates your vaccinations, giving you an annual flu shot and other protective immunizations against diseases like COVID-19 and pneumonia. If you have any specific concerns about your health, you can discuss them during your annual wellness visit.

What happens after my annual wellness visit?

After your exam, your doctor discusses any further tests or procedures they think you need. This can include bloodwork, lab tests, X-rays, or other diagnostic imaging procedures.

The team offers integrative care that includes every aspect of the body, mind, and spirit. If you struggle with anxiety, trauma, depression, or any other mental health problem, AZZ Medical Associates offers a safe and supportive environment to explore your feelings, learn new behavioral skills, and make lasting changes to your overall health.

The AZZ Medical Associates team believes that preventive care is necessary for good health. Their annual wellness visits help you stay well and avoid potential problems down the road. Call your nearest office today or book an appointment online to arrange your annual wellness visit.
