Schedule your annual physical exam today with a Fairview care provider—important for your overall health.

Reasons for a Physical

Most people only go to the doctor when they experience a problem or an illness, but your primary care provider can offer much more to keep you healthy.

Physicals, or check-ups, are important for your overall health:

  1. Prevent health problems: Your doctor can review changes in your health, identify risk factors for problems and offer advice on how to manage them. 
  2. Update vaccinations: Shots are not just for kids. Immunizations are an important way to prevent diseases and infections such as shingles. 
  3. Review medication prescriptions: It’s important to discuss over-the-counter medications to prevent side effects. 

Stay well, get a physical
