Primary Care & Annual Exam Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care can be thought of as the starting point for all of your health and wellness services. A great primary care physician acts as a coach for your health and supports you as you move through the phases of life. 

Preventive health is the main focus of primary care and works to prevent chronic health conditions that can reduce your quality of life. Never before have there been such advanced health screening tools to check for signs of disease and taking advantage of those tools is important for both children and adults. 

Your primary care physician works with you to find ways to enhance your health and support your body’s functions. Regardless of whether you’re trying to control high blood pressure, manage diabetes, or boost your performance in your next marathon, working with a great primary care team is a great place to begin. 

What are the benefits of primary care and annual exams?

Annual exams are the setting in which you receive most preventive health services. These visits allow Dr. Los to assess your health and add to your comprehensive medical record, a living document that guides your care throughout your life. 

Preventive health can give you the tools and support you need to avoid serious chronic health conditions later in life. It offers the chance to not only feel your best every day, but to also enjoy your later years in the best possible health.

Coming in for routine annual exams also allows you to get to know Dr. Los and develop a trusting relationship with her and the SteadFast Primary Care team. That makes it easier to know where to turn if an urgent care need arises. 

What happens during an annual exam?

The first part of your annual physical focuses on gathering information about your vital signs and overall condition. Expect checks of the following:

  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Temperature
  • Skin condition
  • Reflexes
  • Vision
  • Breathing function
  • Overall appearance

Next, Dr. Los discusses any changes or areas of concern you’ve noticed since your last visit. This is your opportunity to ask any questions you have about your physical or mental health. 

If Dr. Los feels you need more in-depth screenings, she’ll discuss your next steps during your visit. If you are under treatment for chronic health conditions, she’ll review your progress and advise you if changes need to be made.
