Wellness Visits Q & A

What are wellness visits?

Wellness visits are part of a preventive health care plan to lower your risk for chronic diseases. 

A wellness visit aims to identify potential warning signs of an acute or chronic illness before you experience symptoms. With early intervention, many chronic conditions are manageable and easier to treat. 

Desert Lotus Clinic offers wellness visits for adolescents and adults. Nadia can also meet with you online through the virtual telehealth platform to discuss any questions or concerns you have about your health in between wellness visits. 

When should I schedule wellness visits?

You should schedule wellness visits for yourself or your family at Desert Lotus Clinic once a year, even if you feel great and are enjoying good health. 

Often, chronic health conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes won’t cause any noticeable symptoms until the disease progresses. Routine wellness evaluations allow Nadia to identify early signs of disease before complications arise. 

Primary care services are available if you need ongoing medical care to manage existing health issues. You can schedule an urgent care appointment for an unexpected injury or illness. 

What happens during wellness visits?

During wellness visits at Desert Lotus Clinic, Nadia reviews your personal and family medical histories to identify risk factors for chronic health conditions. She also completes a physical exam and notes important details about your health, such as:

  • Weight
  • Height
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Lung function 
  • Body temperature
  • Muscle strength
  • Joint flexibility
  • Skin health

If you have an existing disease or at high risk for conditions like diabetes, Nadia requests bloodwork or other in-clinic lab services. 

Depending on your existing health, age, and risk factors for disease, she may also refer you to a specialist for additional preventive screenings. For instance, women aged 40 and up can get a referral for a mammogram to screen for breast cancer. 

Nadia also offers lifestyle and nutrition counseling services to optimize your existing health, support healthy weight loss, and protect your long-term wellness.
