Annual exams are a good time to talk about your overall health and check for any changes. We can also compare lab work from year to year to be sure medicines are working as they should. 

If we see changes in your health, we can find out what’s causing the problem and care for it right away. When found early, medical problems may be easier to care for and not turn into something more serious. 

During your yearly visit we can: 

  • Check your vital signs (blood pressure, weight, etc.)  
  • Update any vaccinations (shots) you need  
  • Do a physical exam  
  • Talk about how diet and exercise may keep you from getting more serious medical problems  
  • Go over your medicines and order refills if needed  
  • Talk to you about advance care planning, or what to do if you cannot speak for yourself  

Examples include:   

  • Breast exams  
  • Family planning (birth control)  
  • Incontinence (problems controlling your bladder or bowel movements)  
  • Menopause counseling  
  • Osteoporosis (brittle bones)  
  • Prostate cancer  
  • Routine gynecological exams (Pap test, etc.) 
  • Sexual dysfunction (erectile dysfunction or ED)  
  • Testicular cancer  

No. Family medicine doctors see people of all ages. Internal medicine doctors see adults ages 18 and older.    

Internal medicine is a type of primary care. An internal medicine doctor oversees all your care.

Our internal medicine doctors work with many specialists. If you ever need specialty care or to talk to a specialist, your doctor can quickly connect you to the right provider.    

Your internal medicine doctor will also oversee all your care to make sure you get the right care at the right time.
