Annual wellness visits can be done at all of McKenzie Medical Center’s locations: McKenzie, Bruceton, Gleason and Dresden.
The aim of these visits is to encourage patients to come in before they are sick to discuss ways to avoid getting sick. It reflects the idea that medicine needs to focus on keeping people well, not just treating them when they are sick.
As part of the visit you can expect a health risk assessment; an update on health status; blood pressure measurements; detection of cognitive impairments; a list of risk factors and conditions; personalized health advice and referrals as appropriate; and a screening schedule for appropriate preventative services over the next five to ten years. The screenings services can be scheduled and typically done at MMC on the same day as your Medicare Wellness Visit.
