What is a General Wellness Exam?
A general wellness exam is a primary care service that involves collecting basic information on your health, examining your vital signs, discussing your lifestyle, and identifying any potential medical concerns or signs of disease. Your exam will be personalized to fit your age, gender, and health needs. Dr. Alexander takes a caring, educational approach with each patient, working closely to understand their needs and provide them with guidance on how to maintain optimal health for years to come.
It is essential for men, women, and children of all ages to have a yearly, comprehensive wellness check, even if they are already in good health.

Any additional tests, such as blood work, will be done at our on-site laboratory. In addition, Dr. Alexander will talk with you about your daily lifestyle, exercise habits, and medications, as well as provide you with any recommendations for simple changes to boost your overall health and well-being.
