Healthy adults with no medical problems should see one of our doctors every 1-3 years for a wellness exam and health profile. This profile gives you and our physicians an opportunity to follow your health together, discuss any concerns you or your physician may have, and ensure that you remain in good health. Potentially debilitating diseases such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, asthma, diabetes, and cancer can be detected on a routine wellness and health profile, sometimes well before symptoms develop. Adults with medical problems, or anyone over age 50, should have an annual wellness exam and repeat visits as needed. We believe that doctor and patient should work together to maintain wellness. This partnership promotes the utmost care.
