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.
