Annual Wellness Exam Q & A
What is an annual wellness exam?
You need an annual wellness exam to keep a record of your health to help make sure you’re not at risk for developing sickness or disease in the future. When you visit Battlefield Family Medicine & Weight Management, Dr. Tavani and the team establish a relationship with you, making your visits a seamless and comfortable process.
Your exam begins with a consultation where the team talks with you and gathers information about your medical history and family medical history, and answers any questions of concern. Learning of any past illnesses or health issues helps Dr. Tavani diagnose you accurately.
An annual wellness exam may include checking your:
- Blood pressure
- Ears, eyes, and throat
- Musculoskeletal system
Dr. Tavani also asks you to take deep breaths as he listens to your lungs and heart. He presses on your stomach to check your liver and abdomen, too.
If necessary, Dr. Tavani might order blood work for lab testing to gain a more comprehensive evaluation of any other health issues.
At Battlefield Family Medicine & Weight Management, the team has a preventive approach to your annual wellness exam to help you avoid sickness and disease so you can stay strong and healthy.
Why do I need an annual wellness exam?
If you’re a parent of a child who plays sports in school or for recreation, or participates in clubs, such as Boy Scouts, you’re required to provide proof of an annual wellness exam from your doctor.
An annual exam with Dr. Tavani also allows the practice to keep your records on hand for appropriate monitoring of your health and wellness journey throughout your life.
How should I prepare for an annual wellness exam?
Before you come in for your exam, be sure to have all the necessary information for Dr. Tavani to review, including:
- List of medications
- Questions or concerns
- Medical information
