Annual physicals help establish a health baseline

From child well-checks, to annual physicals, to Medicare Wellness Visits, annual checkups are an important part maintaining a relationship with your doctor and receiving individualized counseling based on your family health history and your lifestyle.

In this recent ARC Healthcare Minute, Dr. Merlin “Joji” Abraham, Family Medicine physician at ARC Pflugerville, says that even if you are healthy and not experiencing any issues, a physical can help “Establish a baseline from which to measure your health annually.” And, if you do have risk factors, such as a family history of high blood pressure or cholesterol, she says, “Regular visits and screenings can help identify a problem early on.”

If it’s time for your annual physical, call Dr. Abraham at ARC Pflugerville at 512-989-2680 or make an appointment online.
