A ‘Well Visit’ is an annual appointment with a health provider to check on a person’s physical and mental wellbeing and to prevent future health problems. These are also known as “preventative visits.” Some people may only get care when they don’t feel well. That is important too! But “sick care” isn’t enough to be able to live your best life. Find a provider who you like and make them part of your life team!
A lot can happen to our bodies in one year. Be sure you’re staying on top of your health and wellness with an annual visit to a health provider. Your mind matters too. If you are struggling with your emotions and feelings, talk to a counselor or therapist who can help. If insurance doesn’t cover it, many people have sliding scale fees. You matter!
