Wellness Visits Q & A

Why do I need wellness visits?

Wellness visits are tailored entirely to you and designed to help you reach and maintain an optimal state of well-being. Your appointments can include comprehensive preventive care evaluations, as well as monitoring and managing chronic diseases. It might be time to start scheduling routine wellness visits to:

  • Reduce your risk of chronic disease
  • Help you reach a healthy weight
  • Monitor warning signs of chronic illnesses
  • Get caught up on immunizations and vaccines

In some cases, your employer or insurance company might require wellness visits in order to maintain your health insurance plan.

How often do I need wellness visits?

How often you need wellness visits depends on your overall health, whether or not you have — or are at risk of developing — chronic disease, and your specific health goals. As long as you’re generally healthy, Dr. Munoz recommends booking routine wellness visits every year. But if you have certain risk factors, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, the team at Munoz Urgent Care might want to see you more regularly.

How do I prepare for wellness visits?

If your wellness visit is mandatory, possibly due to insurance requirements, you might have paperwork that needs to be filled out by your physician. Bring that with you. You can also prepare for a wellness visit by:

  • Making a list of all prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and dosages
  • Gathering all medical records
  • Finding out about your family medical history

If you need blood work, you might need to fast before your wellness visit. But the team at Munoz Urgent Care lets you know if fasting is required ahead of time.

Some men and women find it helpful to write down a list of concerns or ailments that are bothering them since it can be easy to forget when you’re in the middle of an exam. Remember that issues that seem minor, like feeling thirsty all the time, could be early indicators of disease, so you need to discuss them with Dr. Munoz.
