The Wellness Visit
Your physician can request a wellness exam in an effort to prevent illness.
The evaluation primarily consists of questions about procedures that have been recommended for you and risk factors for certain diseases based on your lifestyle.
Questions will be asked about depression and a test to evaluate dementia will be performed.
Medications are reviewed and recommendations made to discontinue or add others to your current list. The evaluation is usually done by a midlevel health professional.
Your opinion matters.
