WellCare Q & A

What is a well-care visit?

Well-care refers to your annual visit to your doctor to check on your general health. A well-care visit is also commonly referred to as an annual physical. It’s an important part of your personal health management because it helps you and your doctor stay on top of your general well-being. It also provides you and your specialist at Ross Medical Group the opportunity to build on your patient-doctor relationship to improve trust that ultimately benefits you and your long-term health care needs.

In addition to your annual physical, the family medicine specialists at Ross Medical Group also provide pre-participation sports physicals for schools.

What can I expect during a well-care visit?

Your well-care visit at Ross Medical Group is a comprehensive examination that assesses your total body health. During your examination, your specialist reviews your medical and family history, medication use, and your general health concerns. Your specialist also conducts a physical exam, which may include:

  • Checking your vitals
  • An assessment of your body mass index
  • Looking at your ears, nose, and throat
  • Evaluating your heart and lungs
  • Palpation of your internal organs

Your specialist may also request blood work and urinalysis at the on-site lab.

Your specialist then uses the information gathered during your evaluation to develop a treatment plan aimed at maintaining or improving your current health. The primary goal of your well-care visit is to prevent sickness. In addition to talking to you about your health habits, your specialist may also recommend you update your vaccinations and get special screening tests, such as a colon cancer screen, to assess your risk of certain health conditions.

The full-service clinic offers flu and pneumonia vaccines and can conduct your colon cancer screening on-site.

What if I have a chronic medical condition?

The specialists at Ross Medical Group are family medicine physicians with extensive training so they can manage all of your chronic health conditions. A few of the most common health conditions the team manages include:

  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Thyroid conditions

The specialists also offer assistance with weight management. If you’re overweight or obese, losing even a small amount of weight may improve some of your chronic conditions or prevent the onset of a health issue.
