Wellness Visit

What Is A Wellness Visit?

A wellness visit is a yearly appointment with your primary care provider to go over the many aspects of your health and wellness. These exams are an important part of preventive care as they may be your only visit to a medical provider over the course of a full year.

During a wellness visit at Wasatch Family and Women’s Wellness, Cameryn takes lots of measurements and performs simple tests that can show early signs of illnesses and health complications, even if you don’t have any symptoms.

A wellness visit also gives you the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about your health and how to care for yourself. You tell Cameryn about your current lifestyle and behaviors, ask questions, and receive helpful self-care advice.

At Wasatch Family and Women’s Wellness, Cameryn provides wellness visits that are specific to women and their unique health needs and risks.

Effectiveness Of Treatment

You should do your best to attend your wellness visits at Wasatch Family and Women’s Wellness every year. Even if you feel perfectly fine and have not noticed any changes since your last visit, these exams offer noteworthy benefits.

The benefits of wellness exams include:

  • Detecting early warning signs of diseases

What Should I Expect During My Wellness Visits?

During a wellness visit at Wasatch Family and Women’s Wellness, you briefly go over your medical history and update Cameryn on any new developments since your last visit. She records measurements like your height and weight and checks your vitals. Then, the physical exam begins.

Cameryn asks questions about aspects of your health such as your diet, sexual activity, menstruation, and other factors. She may perform screening tests for various diseases based on your age and health risks related to your family history or lifestyle. 

You may need other examinations, like a pelvic exam and breast exam. Depending on your needs at the time of your visit, Cameryn might also recommend additional services like pregnancy testing, sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing, Pap smear, and vaccination updates. She also offers hormone therapy for menopause symptoms.
