Annual Wellness Visits

Why are Annual Wellness Visits Important?

Your annual wellness visit is an important time to strengthen your relationship with your primary care provider. It’s an opportunity to prioritize your physical and mental health needs — to address questions, plan for the year ahead, set health goals and keep illnesses at bay. Our team’s approach is to understand your health deeply and guide you on the journey to a healthier tomorrow.
Did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a staggering 7 out of every 10 deaths among Americans yearly is tied to preventable chronic diseases? Yes, preventable.

Even if you’re in perfect health today, an annual wellness visit is for all ages and is about safeguarding your health for tomorrow.

Annual wellness visits include a routine checkup, routine screenings and recommendations for specialized screenings and lab tests that help detect and address potential health concerns. Remember, silent diseases like heart disease, diabetes and some cancers often don’t have clear symptoms early on. These regular annual visits are our best defense against them.
