Regular visits to the doctor are important! Having regular medical check-ups will help create a good relationship with your doctor and will help keep your body in check. If your family has a history of certain medical conditions, regular visits can help you learn your potential risk of these conditions. This can also help find any possible problems before they start. Regular check-ups also help you stay updated on different screenings such as blood pressure, cholesterol checks and certain types of cancer screenings. By getting the right medical services and screenings, you are taking an active role in your health.

Before your appointment, it is important to write down any questions you might have for your doctor. There is no question that is too small, even changes in your eating and sleeping habits are important to mention. If you know of illnesses in your family, you should let your doctor know – family history can possibly affect your health. It’s also a good idea to find out if you are current on your vaccinations or health screenings. Another topic to discuss are your exercise and eating habits. Letting your health care provider know of any changes and questions you may have is a great way to start taking control of your health. Not sure what questions you should ask during your visit?
