Physicals & Preventive Care

A Health Maintenance Exam, (also called a physical or annual exam) is an important opportunity to screen for and prevent illness. It is an extended visit with your primary clinician that includes an interview, a full physical examination, and counseling regarding diet and exercise, and other lifestyle choices that affect your health. It may include laboratory testing to screen for disease, administration of appropriate immunizations, and referrals for recommended tests.
If, during your physical, we find other medical conditions that warrant attention a follow up visit may be required to more thoroughly evaluate and plan treatment for those conditions. If time and circumstances permit, we will work to evaluate and treat for those conditions during your wellness exam, but please know that we may bill for an office visit in addition to your wellness visit if this does occur.
