Be your best self: Why you need an annual physical

Happy birthday! As you celebrate a new year of life, we encourage you to make time for your health, including good nutrition, regular physical activity and a yearly physical with a primary care physician.

Prevention is the key to staying strong and living longer    Full body exam, lab tests, using blood or urine samples

Your doctor will assess your overall health with a full-body exam and run lab work using blood or urine samples to check your cholesterol, blood sugar, kidney function, liver function, and potassium, sodium and iron levels. He or she will also check your blood pressure and weight.

Men over 50 need a yearly prostate exam    Women should visit both a primary care physician and a gynecologist each year
