At Family Practice Center, we provide our patients with comprehensive medical care to help promote long-term health and wellness. This begins with performing complete physical wellness exams, otherwise known as an annual check-up appointment. We understand that people have more options available than ever before when it comes to seeking out medical care and advice.
There is incredible value in developing a sustained partnership with your primary care physician and their trained medical team over the years. Undergoing annual complete physical wellness exams at Family Practice Center allows our patients to keep track of the status of their health and wellbeing through the years and address any health conditions or illnesses before they become serious.
Complete physical wellness exams at Family Practice Center include 15 preventative care services that are recommended for adults including:
- Measuring vital signs like blood pressure, height, weight, and body mass index (BMI)
- A physical exam performed by an MD, NP, or PA
- An assessment of your past medical history and surgical history
- A discussion of your family history of illness and health conditions
- A rundown of your social and work history
- An evaluation of your current level of physical activity and goals for improving overall health
- An assessment of your immunization history and recommendations for upcoming immunizations
- Screenings for depression and alcohol misuse
- Discussion and schedule of appropriate cancer screenings
In some instances, additional diagnostic tests like EKGs, urinalysis, and blood tests may be included as part of a complete physical wellness exam. However, this depends on the patient’s insurance coverage. We strongly recommend speaking with your insurance provider before your visit to avoid any confusion or unexpected costs. Evaluation of specific medical concerns including management of acute or chronic medical problems and prescription refills are not covered by insurance as part of a complete physical wellness exam but can be addressed at the same visit for a 50% reduced cost* when compared to the cost for a regular office visit.

Complete Physical Wellness Exam FAQs:
Q: What if I notice a new medical condition between complete physical wellness exam appointments?
A: We also offer acute and chronic care visits for patients who have suddenly noticed the development of a new and pressing medical condition. We offer walk-in appointments daily from 7:30 am – 8:30 am for the convenience of our patients. Additionally, we also offer telemedicine appointments with eVisit™ to help patients who wish to address any concerns or questions they may have from the comfort of their own homes.
Q: Can an urgent care visit take the place of a complete wellness exam?
A: No, the level of care and attention that patients can expect to receive at an urgent care center is not comparable to what we can provide during a complete physical wellness exam. By law, urgent care centers are not permitted to perform the preventive health exams that we can here at Family Practice Center.
