A wellness exam is a medical examination, such as a yearly physical checkup, which is aimed at preventing health problems in an apparently healthy person. It’s in contrast to the type of medical examination you get when you have specific symptoms that need to be diagnosed. In the wellness exam, the doctor may do things like check your blood pressure and pulse, listen to your lungs with a stethoscope, use instruments to look inside your ears and nose, draw blood to check your cholesterol, and ask about any concerns you may have.
Routine health exams and tests can help to detect potential health problems at an early stage, thereby increasing the effectiveness of treatments and the possibility of full recovery.
