Annual Exams are Essential to Maintaining Health

midwest express clinic annual examWhen you own a vehicle you love, you make sure it receives regular scheduled maintenance every so many miles, fixing small issues before they turn into big problems, cleaning filters, changing tires and more. Do you show yourself that much care and attention? Making sure you receive annual exams is the best way to keep yourself healthy or, much like your car, prevent small problems from becoming major concerns.

Depending on your needs, you may have regular exams with a general family practitioner, pediatrician, obstetrician, dermatologist and more. Even if you are healthy, providing your doctor with baseline readings in areas such as blood pressure can help them identify if or when a problem is starting since they will have numbers to compare. Annual exams also allow you to bring any questions you may have that perhaps you’ve been delaying or playing off as something minor. You can stay up-to-date on vaccines and other health-related needs and your doctor can recommend routine tests and screenings that are best for you based on current health, family history, and age.

Unfortunately, many doctor’s offices are backed up with appointments, particularly in seasons with a higher rate of illness, such as flu season, so getting into the office may take months. If you’re due for an annual exam, or it’s been way too long since you’ve had an exam at all, visit our office today. We will provide you with a professional exam at a time that is convenient for you! You can even check in before you arrive at the office, helping to eliminate your wait time. Now is the perfect time to take control of your health.
