What does the checkup include?

Why is an annual check-up important?

Personalize your care

Builds a relationship with a FirstMed doctor. 

The more familiar your doctor is with your individual health, the more effective appointments can be throughout the year.

Save money

You’ll save not only time fighting illnesses but also money for medical bills down the road detecting issues before they get serious

Minimize your risk of diseases 

Identifies issues that may become medical concerns in the future

Establish new baselines

Reviewing any changes that have occurred over the last year allows for a refreshed perspective on the healthy choices and lifestyle needed to fit your goals.

What to expect:

The Annual Check-up service is done in two appointments:

1. General Practice consultation and blood & urine sample withdrawal

2. Follow-up visit to go through the test results

First visit takes about 30 - 40 minutes to complete. Once we have the results from the lab, you can evaluate them with the general practitioner. During this visit, you'll review the risk factors that could potentially lead to future health problems and provide expert advice on how to manage them.

Having an annual health maintenance exam is an excellent opportunity to take charge of your health. Even if you feel fine, it is still important to regularly see your health care provider and check for potential problems. For example, most people who have high blood pressure don’t even know it. The only way to find out is by having blood pressure checked regularly.

Likewise, high blood sugar and high cholesterol levels often do not produce any symptoms until the disease becomes advanced.

You can safeguard and enhance your health, perhaps for many decades, by having certain screening tests done regularly. The tests are used for early detection of some of the more common and potentially serious diseases occurring in adults, such as sexually transmitted diseases, cancers, diabetes, and heart disease.

Q&A

How long does the annual check-up take?

It takes about 30 - 40 minutes to complete.

 

At the first appointment, you will fill out FirstMed Health Assessment Questionnaire and your General Practitioner will evaluate the basic function of your organs, address any concerns, provide preventive screenings and make health recommendations to lower your risk of chronic diseases. After the nurse takes your blood sample, you will be done and will wait for the email where we send your lab test results. 

How long does it take to have the lab results back?

Once the lab has processed the sample, FirstMed will send you an email with your results. The timeframe for your results to come back is usually 1-2 days for blood and urine tests, but may vary gratly based on the type of exam. Please ask the nurse or your medical provider at the time of your appointment how long the results should take.

What if my doctor refers me to a specialist?

If you are referred to a specialist, ask the reception about scheduling your visit. FirstMed has many specialists and will try to accomodate your availability.

What is there's nothing wrong with me?

If all your levels are within the normal ranges and your doctor makes no significant findings at your visit, then you're all set to go until next year's check up!
