Wellness Exams Q&A

What is a wellness exam?

A wellness exam usually involves a preventive care visit, checkup, and general physical exam with your qualified and trusted medical provider. At Agape Family Healthcare, Beverly provides comprehensive checkups, screenings, physical exams, and more to evaluate your health and risk factors.

The type and the specifics of your wellness exam depend on several factors, such as your age, health concerns, sex, and family and medical history. Beverly suggests a general wellness exam at least once every year to develop a clear picture of your overall health.

At Agape Family Healthcare, wellness isn’t just being free from injury or illness. Wellness also involves a dynamic process of change and growth towards living a more fulfilling and healthier life. Wellness is a state of total physical, mental, and social well-being.

What can I expect during my wellness exam?

All wellness exams and checkups begin with a consultation and a discussion of your concerns and medical and social history. Beverly might suggest different types of exams or testing to check your:

  • Blood sugar levels
  • Certain risk factors for chronic conditions (such as genetic mutations)
  • Cholesterol
  • Blood pressure
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Skin health and complexion

Depending on the type of wellness exam, Beverly might examine your breathing, heart, reflexes, and skin for abnormalities. She might recommend bloodwork, including glucose, lipid, and thyroid screenings.

After your evaluation, your physical exam, and any necessary testing, your wellness checkup might include an individualized treatment plan to treat an existing or newly diagnosed health condition. 

Agape Family Healthcare offers different types of wellness checkups and exams, such as Pap tests, gynecologic exams, and referrals when needed.

What are the benefits of a wellness exam?

Your wellness exam offers many benefits, such as:

  • The medical care and support of a trusted provider 
  • Beneficial information about how to live a healthier lifestyle
  • Professional guidance to help you make decisions about your health
  • A clear explanation of your current health 

Even if you are in good health, your wellness exam and checkup is still beneficial and helps you take care of your health. 

Your wellness exam also allows Beverly to evaluate and lower your risks of disease. During your exam, Beverly can identify abnormalities, such as a heart murmur or high levels of inflammation.
