Three years ago, we were met with a global health crisis that resulted in many of us putting our other health concerns on pause, and I want to be sure you have all shifted your focus back to your overall health and wellness.
Have you kept up with your yearly physical? Is it time to do a full review of your medicine and treatment regimens? Have you gained or lost significant weight? How are your stress levels, sleep patterns, fitness programs and anxiety?
Your annual comprehensive examination could be the foundation of your good health. Diseases and conditions such as hypertension, cancer, and anemia can be asymptomatic, for example, but a thorough history, physical examination, laboratory testing, and an in-depth discussion may prove revealing and lifesaving. We can also take advantage of this time together to create a plan to help you meet your wellness goals.
Let’s partner toward your best health. Please contact our office to schedule your annual exam. And as always, I am available should you have any concerns or questions.
