When you are sick you call your doctor, that’s just common sense. But when was the last time you had well check? It’s really important that you have an annual well check appointment even if you are one of those fortunate people who rarely needs a doctor. One way to stay in good health is to get an annual exam.
Many times, people have an underlying problem that they aren’t even aware they have. Finding those potential ailments early on can help you prevent more serious health problems in the future. This could also lead to saving money on medical bills later on by catching the issue before it gets too serious. Blood work is an important part of that annual physical, that can identify concerns even if you aren’t aware of them. An annual visit to the doctor can also strengthen that patient-doctor relationship.
This visit is also a great time to go over medications you are currently taking. Discussing these medications whether it be prescribed and over-the-counter is important because we want to make sure you are getting the best available treatment available. We also want to make sure that there are no possible interactions between medications.
