Wellness Physical

Photo of a patient checking in with usA wellness physical examines many factors including the identification of potential thyroid, kidney, liver, and other metabolic disorders; plus heart disease and subtle evidence of potential problems. Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States of both men and women. Unfortunately, the first sign of heart disease is often the heart attack itself, or sudden death. If you have a family history of heart disease, problem cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes—you may have genetic predispositions to these problems regardless of your fitness level.

Our focus

Most health care providers focus on illness. Our wellness exams focus on good health and preventive measures. We will review your family and medical history, assess your current status, listen to how you perceives your own health, identify areas that need attention, implement a plan, and follow-up program of education. The intention is to guide you toward better health throughout your life.

When is the best time to start a regular program of physicals

Early detection is the best ally in dealing with medical problems. When health care is avoided or symptoms are ignored, the neglect can cut years off your life. People with a family history of heart disease should start with physicals in their 20s. Others are wise to get active toward preserving their health by age 35-40. Genetics are important, but environment and lifestyle can override good genes. As with most diseases, diagnoses before symptoms develop increase your options for less-invasive treatments and your chances for success.

Easy to do

A wellness physical is no more painful than sitting still to draw blood or lying still for an X-ray. Emotionally, a thorough look into one’s health makes some people uneasy. We know such an exam is a big step so we try to make the experience as positive and pleasant as possible. The entire exam takes just two to three hours, including reviewing your results with the doctor.

Fitness

If you're alive, you need to exercise. The human body is the only machine that generally improves with use. If you sit at a desk all day long and then go home to relax, you need to introduce some sort of regular fitness into your daily life. Sedentary lifestyles can promote numerous health issues. We will be happy to recommend a fitness program that fits your health.
