Why You Need An Annual Wellness Visit
So you have decided to eat better and get more physical activity to improve your health this year. That's great, but don't forget another important element of good healthcare - an annual visit with your healthcare provider. This important annual check-up gives you the opportunity to discuss any problems with your doctor. You get a thorough exam, review family history and assess your medications. Lab tests determine whether you have a medical issue and if it needs to be addressed. This annual check-up can discover any problems early, when they are most treatable. Robin Stoloff recommends making that annual appointment around your birthday so you don't forget. She talks with a local AtlantiCare doctor about the importance of this visit in her program Living Well With Robin Stoloff Sundays 9-11am on Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG.
