Yearly Wellness Visit

By Harbor View Medical Services, PC

A yearly wellness visit is a great way to help you stay healthy.

What happens during a yearly wellness visit?

The doctor or nurse will first ask you to fill out a questionnaire called a "health risk assessment." Your answers will help you and the doctor or nurse get the most from your yearly wellness visit.

During your visit, the doctor or nurse will:

  • Go over your health risk assessment with you
  • Ask about your medical and family history
  • Measure your height and weight
  • Check your blood pressure
  • Ask about other doctors you see and any medicines you take
  • Give advice to help you prevent disease, improve your health, and stay well

The doctor or nurse will give you a short written plan – like a checklist – to take home with you. This plan will include any screening tests and other preventive services that you will need over the next 5 to 10 years. Preventative services are health care services that keep you from getting sick.

Kindly, call Port Jefferson Internal Medicine to schedule your yearly wellness visit.
