An annual wellness visit is a thorough health evaluation that bears similarities to a traditional physical exam. While Medicare may not cover standard physicals, it does provide reimbursement for wellness exams. These annual check-ups are invaluable as they offer profound insights into your health and are designed to promote the health and well-being of patients.
Wellness visits play a pivotal role in the early detection of chronic ailments, such as peripheral vascular disease and diabetes, as well as cognitive impairments. Additional tests or adjustments may be made to your care plan based on the findings of your annual wellness assessment.
An annual wellness visit goes beyond routine check-ups, providing you with a comprehensive evaluation if your overall health. It begins with the measurement of your height and weight, followed by the recording of vital signs like blood pressure, temperature, and respiration rate.

The data that the team collects can be as crucial as the physical examination. Based on the assessment, our team may recommend further assessments, including imaging scans, cardiac evaluations, or laboratory blood tests.
Wellness visits are less extensive than physicals and are primarily focused on supporting your long-term health goals, while physical exams are designed to identify health concerns in their early stages. Physical exams are more focused on helping you achieve your long-term health objectives.
During a physical exam, our medical team conducts a head-to-toe assessment, examining your eyes, ears, nose, throat, heart, lungs, abdomen, and even testing your reflexes.
In general, we encourage patients to follow Dr. Garvin Patel’s recommendations regarding the timing of both annual wellness visits and physical exams. Some individuals may require annual physicals for continuous monitoring of specific health issues, while others may benefit from less frequent screenings every 2-3 years. At Arrae Health, we work with you to develop a personalized care plan that suits your unique needs.
