Annual Exams

Take charge of your health through an annual exam. Annual exams can help identify, treat or prevent health problems before they occur. If a problem is found early, it is more likely to be treatable and less likely to cause significant risk to your health.


As you age, your health needs change. That’s why it’s crucial to routinely meet with your doctor to discuss your health and any issues that may need addressed.

What to Expect During Your Annual Exam

Depending on your age, your doctor will ask you certain questions about your lifestyle and any health issues you may be facing.


Generally, these questions include:

  • Contraception
  • Sexual problems or concerns
  • Physical activity
  • Nutrition
  • Family history of disease
  • Family relationships
  • Lifestyle and stress
  • Issues with sleep
  • Women’s health concerns

As you get older, your doctor may also suggest screening for certain conditions. A general list of these tests include:

  • Clinical Breast Exam (yearly, for women 21 years and older)
  • STI testing
  • Cervical cancer screening
  • Colorectal cancer screening
  • Diabetes testing
  • Hepatitis C testing
  • Mammography
  • Thyroid-stimulating hormone screening
  • Bone density screening

Your doctor will determine, based on your lifestyle and family history, what tests are necessary during your annual exam.
