Annual Checkups Q & A

What are annual checkups?

Annual checkups are examinations with your primary care provider that evaluate your overall physical health. For children and adolescents, these checkups also serve to track growth and development. When you’re older, your checkups become a little more complex to check for age-related diseases. 

Dr. Mohtashami provides annual checkups for patients of all ages in her office. As a family practitioner, she can provide pediatric checkups, geriatric checkups, and exams for everyone between those age groups too. You and your whole family can all get primary care in the same place.

What are the benefits of getting annual checkups?

There are considerable advantages to making annual checkups a part of your yearly agenda. It doesn’t matter which time of year you get them as long as you stay consistent. If you have certain health conditions, Dr. Mohtashami might suggest getting them more often than just once a year.

The benefits you get from coming in for annual checkups include:

  • A stronger relationship with your provider
  • Earlier diagnoses
  • More effective treatment
  • Reduced risk of getting sick
  • Updated information on the treatments and care you need
  • Detailed health and lifestyle advice 

You can also use the results of annual checkups and tests to track your health over time and identify trends that may help you improve your lifestyle further. 

What happens during my annual checkups?

There are a few steps to expect during a typical annual checkup with Dr. Mohtashami. The specific steps and tests you need vary based on your age and health risks, but Dr. Mohtashami can help you make sure you get any necessary screening tests or vaccinations as soon as you need them. 

Your next annual checkup includes:

  • Review of medical history
  • Vital signs (e.g., heart rate and blood pressure)
  • Measurements (e.g., height and weight)
  • Comprehensive physical examination
  • Lifestyle advice

Depending on your personal needs at the time of your visit, you can also get lab tests, imaging tests, disease screenings, and vaccinations during your annual checkups with Dr. Mohtashami.
