Nothing is more important for your health and wellness than the preventive health care you receive through yearly wellness visits. Dr. Nader Ewaida at Hope Internal Medicine & Sleep Clinic works closely with each patient, providing thorough examinations, screenings to prevent chronic disease, and supporting their health through lifestyle recommendations and medical care. If you’re overdue for your annual wellness visit, call the office in North Richland Hills, Texas or book an appointment online.
Wellness visits focus on preventing disease, so you can stay healthy throughout your lifetime. One of the most important benefits of routine wellness visits is that Dr. Ewaida catches signs of trouble while you can still prevent the disease.
Most chronic diseases, like high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes, develop gradually, without causing symptoms, so you won’t get any red flags alerting you to a potential problem.
With annual wellness visits, Dr. Ewaida detects slight increases in your blood pressure, blood sugar, or other biomarkers such as cholesterol, before they’re high enough to cause full-blown disease.
At this early stage, lifestyle changes and perhaps medications can stop the chronic disease in its tracks. By comparison, once the disease develops, it can’t be cured; it must be managed to keep it controlled for the rest of your life.
During your wellness visit, you’ll receive the same medical services as a routine physical exam — a check of your vitals (heart rate, blood pressure, and weight), a review of your medical history, and a thorough physical exam. But you’ll also get more.
Your wellness visit gives you time to talk with Dr. Ewaida and ask questions, whether you’re worried about ways to reduce stress, lose weight, stop smoking, or whatever is on your mind.
