Wellness Visits Q&A

What are wellness visits?

Wellness visits are an important part of a preventive health care plan. During wellness visits, Dr. Amer has an opportunity to assess the overall health and function of your body. 

The goal of these visits is to identify potential health problems in the earliest stages when treatment is typically most effective. Early identification of diseases can also prevent them from worsening. 

You should schedule wellness visits yearly, even when you’re feeling well. These visits help Dr. Amer monitor your health and track changes from one year to the next.

Primary Care of Telfair – Aaliya Amer MD also offers acute sick visits in-office for when you need immediate medical attention for pain, colds, or other illnesses. You can schedule sick visits in between your annual wellness visits.

What happens during wellness visits?

During your annual wellness visit, Dr. Amer spends time reviewing your personal and family medical histories, your diet, and your lifestyle. She also discusses any issues or concerns you have had with your health since your last visit.

Each wellness visit includes a physical exam, so Dr. Amer can assess your lung function, joint strength, heart rhythm, and skin health. She also evaluates your body temperature, height, and weight.

Based on the results of your physical, Dr. Amer can recommend lifestyle and diet changes you can make to improve your health. She also offers weight management services that help you lose weight and lower your risk for obesity-related illnesses.

Wellness visits are also a good time to get updates on your immunizations against contagious diseases like tetanus and the seasonal flu shot.

Will I need blood work during my wellness visit?

When you have an existing health condition or risk factors for certain chronic diseases, you may need blood work or other preventive screenings during your annual wellness visit.

Dr. Amer offers preventive screenings for conditions like:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

If your screenings reveal any underlying conditions, Dr. Amer can customize a care plan to treat them. She offers comprehensive chronic disease management services to help you stay on top of chronic health issues in the long term.

If you haven’t had a routine physical in more than a year, schedule a wellness visit online or call Primary Care of Telfair – Aaliya Amer MD today.
