Tips for your Annual Health Check Up on your 50th Birthday
Your health is important. Regular visits to your doctor can help to keep you feeling your best. Your annual health check up is an important opportunity to see how you're doing as well as take important preventive steps. Even with a busy schedule, you are encouraged to schedule a physical exam each year.
Routine screenings can detect signs of diseases at their earliest and most treatable stages. Many diseases may show no symptoms until the disease has become very severe and harder to treat, therefore an annual physical exam is an important opportunity for your physician to screen for them.
