Health Screenings and Exams

Wellness exams are a vital part of living a healthy life. These annual preventive exams with your primary care provider can potentially spot health concerns early, resulting in more effective treatment.

Types of wellness visits offered at Mercy:

What to Expect at an Annual Wellness Exam

We recommend preparing for your annual wellness visit by writing down all the medications you’re taking, along with dosages and any questions you’d like to ask. Your Mercy primary care provider will ask about your medical and family history, check your vital signs, administer immunizations and perform routine screenings, such as checking for high blood pressure, checking your heart rate and other vital signs. Additional follow-up health screenings and tests may be recommended based on age, gender, symptoms and risk factors.

Health Screening Tests

Screenings are important to your long-term health because they could lead to early detection and treatment of certain diseases. Preventive services like these can help identify problems before symptoms even appear, reducing your risk for heart attack, stroke, aneurysm, heart disease and other serious health conditions.

Knowing which health screenings are recommended can be confusing. Your Mercy primary care provider will offer individualized medical advice on screenings that benefit you most based on your age, gender, overall health habits and family health history.
