Annual Wellness Exams

Part of health maintenance for all patients is a yearly wellness exam. During this yearly exam, the physicians and physician assistants at Physicians East will:

  • Review a patient’s medical history including family history
  • Update a list of the patient’s current health care providers and medications
  • Measure height, weight, and vital signs (e.g., heart rate and blood pressure)
  • Perform a thorough physical exam
  • Ensure that preventive measures (e.g., screening tests and vaccinations) are taken

By completing a wellness exam, patients can work with their Physicians East health care provider to develop a personalized plan for managing chronic conditions and preventing acute illnesses that will help them stay as healthy as possible over the coming year. 

Completing a yearly wellness exam at Physicians East is convenient, with multiple office locations and a variety of practitioners to choose from. In addition, many preventive services are covered under insurance and Medicaid plans, making the yearly wellness exam affordable as well.
