Wellness Exam Q & A

What is a wellness exam?

A wellness exam is an outpatient procedure designed to catch potentially serious issues early on when they’re most responsive to treatment. You don’t have to be sick or experiencing unusual symptoms to make an appointment. In fact, the team at Capital Health & Clinics recommends scheduling a wellness exam even if you feel fine.

Meeting with your doctor presents an opportunity to ask questions and learn about the steps you can take to improve your health and well-being. 

What are the benefits of a wellness exam?

Visiting the team at Capital Health & Clinics for a wellness exam presents various benefits, including:

  • Tips and insights on staying healthy
  • A better understanding of your health history
  • Reduced health care cost
  • Improved well-being
  • Reduced risk of potentially serious issues

In addition, wellness exams present an opportunity to update immunizations or refill prescription medication if necessary.

How do I prepare for a wellness exam?

To get the most out of your wellness exam, the team at Capital Health & Clinics recommends preparing in advance. 

You can do that by collecting the necessary documentation, including your health insurance information, a list of the medicines or supplements you take regularly, and any unusual symptoms you’re experiencing.

If you’ve recently undergone lab tests or met with a medical specialist, make sure to bring that information as well.

What does a wellness exam involve?

At Capital Health & Clinics, the team tailors wellness exams to each individual’s needs. First, your provider asks about your general health and if you have any concerns. Next, they review your medical history and conduct a comprehensive physical. 

If it's been a while since your last visit, they might also order laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging, or gender-specific preventive screenings. These measures can alert you to potentially serious issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, or prostate cancer.

Who should schedule a wellness exam?

It’s important that all adults schedule a wellness exam every few years, and preferably, annually. That rule is especially true if you’re 50 or older. As you age, you’re more likely to experience certain conditions, like arthritis and heart disease. 

Regular visits to the team at Capital Health & Clinics are an easy way to preserve your health. What’s more, these visits can educate you on the importance of healthy living.
