Wellness Visits Q&A

What are wellness visits?

Wellness visits are appointments that help you stay healthy. While most people only think to go to the doctor once something is already wrong, a wellness visit is a more proactive approach. By regularly visiting Family Medical Center, you get access to the dedicated health care practitioners and their wide range of medical expertise. 

Family Medical Center has board-certified doctors on staff that have been practicing for two decades or more. That means they’re adept at identifying potential warning signs, helping you react quickly and effectively, to any threats to your health. Ultimately, their goal is to help you avoid health conditions and lead a well-balanced life. 

What happens during wellness visits?

A wellness visit is a lot like a physical at the start. You talk with your Family Medical Center provider about how you’re feeling that day and any symptoms or abnormalities you’ve noticed in your physical or mental health. You also discuss your family health history, personal health history, and lifestyle choices. This helps your provider personalize preventive, proactive care to you. 

Next, you get a physical exam. This is your provider’s opportunity to test you for common health conditions like high blood pressure. They may also order additional tests from the on-site lab, such as cholesterol or glucose testing. If they recommend any vaccinations to protect your health, they can administer them during your wellness visit, too. 

A wellness visit differs from a physical in that your provider doesn’t stop there. Not only do they work to prevent disease, they also partner with you to improve your overall well-being. They may make recommendations about stress management, what you eat, or how much you exercise. They also answer any questions you have and offer a physician-supervised weight loss program to patients who would benefit from it. 

Ultimately, by the time you leave your wellness visit, you should have an easy-to-follow plan to protect — and improve — your overall health. 

Who should get wellness visits?
