An annual physical gives you a picture of your health. It also helps you establish a relationship with a doctor so they can monitor changes in your health. While you may feel fine, many chronic conditions, including hypertension, have no outward symptoms, but they do a lot of internal damage.
Don’t go to the doctor only when you’re sick. Annual physicals at Halper Family Medicine give your doctor a chance to see you when you’re well and to help you prevent issues from arising. You have time to review medications and ask general health questions. Your doctor can monitor your blood pressure, weight, and emotional health at annual physicals. You receive better overall care when they have a picture of your medical history and don’t just see you periodically for acute issues such as a sore throat or the flu.
