Annual Visit

Stay Proactive with Your Health

Annual exams allow you to take a proactive approach to your overall health. Dr. Kathleen Vanier meets with her patients at least yearly for a comprehensive exam. Some of the preventative measures we recommend include:

  • Women age 21+: Pap test annually to detect cervical cancer
  • Women age 45+: mammogram every 1-2 years
  • Men age 50+: prostate cancer screening
  • Adults age 50-75: colorectal cancer screening
  • Vaccinations including Influenza, Pneumovax, Shingrix
  • Skin, eye and dental check ups
  • EKG
  • Osteoporosis screening age 65+
  • Advanced directives

Of course, every person’s health and history is unique so other screening exams may be advised. Dr. Vanier wants to meet with you as often as needed to monitor your underlying conditions. This may be in person or through telemedicine. Dr. Vanier values forming strong relationships with patients – she enjoys hearing about your life and health! She is responsive to your questions and concerns through email or messaging exchange.

What to Expect During Physical Exams

This is a two-way communication appointment. Dr. Vanier will comprehensively review your history and physical exam and review new symptoms or signs. Tests may be administered or ordered to assess your risk of:

  • Preventable illness (immunizations)
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Breast cancer (mammograms)
  • Colon cancer (colonoscopy)
  • Osteoporosis (bone density)
  • Depression
  • Pregnancy (birth control)
  • Cervical cancer (Pap test)
  • Prostate cancer
  • Lung cancer

Any time you are experiencing illness, we urge you to schedule a visit with Dr. Vanier. We are here for patients anytime and generally available for urgent same day clinic or telemedicine appointments. We want to hear from you with any concerns.
