A Complete Exam
For a yearly routine physical, it is important to see everything from head to toe. The key to saving lives is in the details, which is why Flourish Wellness Center believes yearly physicals are necessary to the unseen things happening in our bodies.
Blood work is the vehicle that carries the markers for both health and disease. It is vitally important that blood work be taken every physical. Most insurances cover routine blood count, cardiovascular & thyroid risks as well as hormone levels.
It is important to address your specific needs with your primary care so that during your physical your physician can steer you in the right direction for treatment. We recommend writing down a list of concerns that can be reasonable discussed within 30 min. For a list of more extensive concerns a seperate appoitnmet will have to be made.
Physicals are a great way to detect any health concerns early on and are a great opportunity to bring up anything you may be worried about, but also a time for your Doctor to evaluate for any concerns they may have. Catching early signs of any major risk factor is beneficial to long term benefits for the patient. Being proactive can often times be the best cure.
