Wellness Exams Q & A

What are wellness exams?

Wellness exams at Sunstate Medical Associates help you stay well or detect medical problems early before they become serious. Wellness services include:

  • Medicare wellness visits
  • Well woman exams
  • Men’s wellness exams
  • Health screenings
  • Chronic disease management
  • Vaccinations
  • Health education

While you might not exhibit symptoms of an illness or disease, routine health screenings and  preventive medicine can keep you healthy and reduce the risk of medical complications.


What happens during wellness exams?

During a wellness exam, your Sunstate Medical Associates provider checks your weight, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They ask about your personal and family medical history, symptoms you’re experiencing, medications you take, and past diagnoses and surgeries.

Your doctor completes a comprehensive exam, including a pelvic exam and Pap test in women and prostate screening in men if necessary. They examine your eyes, ears, throat, lungs, breathing, heart beat, abdomen, limbs, reflexes, and genitals. Your primary care specialist can screen you for certain health problems, such as:

  • Hormone imbalance
  • Thyroid problems
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • High cholesterol and high blood pressure
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Lung diseases, diabetes, and arthritis
  • Skin problems
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Asthma and allergies
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart problems

They might recommend urine tests, blood tests, heart function tests, vision and hearing screenings, or imaging procedures to diagnose your condition and develop a treatment plan. 

Risk factors for developing a chronic disease include smoking, being overweight, inactivity, poor dietary habits, stress, and family history of disease.
