General Health Checks

General Health Checks

We recommend that our patients have regular personal health checks so that we can discuss with you how to keep yourself healthy throughout your life. These health checks include talking to you about any current health issues, questioning you about any symptoms you may have, reviewing past medical problems, discussing with you significant family medical problems and reviewing general lifestyle behaviours.

Before your visit, review any existing health problems and note any changes

Have you noticed any body changes, including lumps or skin changes?
Are you having pain, dizziness, fatigue, problems with urine or stool, or menstrual cycle changes?
Have your eating habits changed?
Are you experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, distress, or sleeping problems?
If so, note when the change began, how it’s different from before, and any other observation that you think might be helpful.

Be honest when getting your health check. If you haven’t been taking your medication as directed, exercising as much, or anything else, say so. You may be at risk for certain diseases and conditions because of how you live, work, and play. Your provider develops a plan based partly on what you say you do. Help ensure that you get the best guidance by providing the most up-to-date and accurate information about you.
