Wellness Visits Q & A

Why are wellness visits important?

Wellness visits are vital to your health and well-being. These evaluations are your one-on-one time with your doctor to look at every aspect of your health and undergo personalized screenings. Routine wellness visits are important to:

  • Check for early indicators of chronic conditions, such as hypertension
  • Prevent obesity and help you manage your weight
  • Learn healthy dietary and exercise habits
  • Get screened for potential inherited diseases

While the purpose of wellness visits is to prevent chronic disease, of course, not all conditions are avoidable. Routine wellness visits are also important for early detection, so you can get started on treatment before an underlying condition becomes serious.

What happens during a wellness visit?

When you become a patient of Soujanya Marupuru, MD, you can expect comprehensive wellness care, starting with your first visit. Dr. Marupuru is an expert at disease detection and customizes your wellness plan to your needs. She may:

  • Refer you to specialists or evaluate records from a specialist you’ve seen
  • Check your weight and get you started on a weight loss plan (if needed)
  • Order routine mammogram screenings
  • Order labs, such as a blood draw or urinalysis
  • Update or change your prescriptions
  • Counsel you about diet or exercise
  • Provide vaccination updates

Dr. Marupuru is passionate about ensuring each of her patients achieves their optimal health and well-being. If you have specific concerns, like if you recently found out you have a blood relative with cancer, talk with Dr. Marupuru. She may want to order expanded lab testings or screenings during your wellness visit.

How do I prepare for a wellness visit?

As a compassionate primary care physician, Dr. Marupuru wants to ensure she’s able to evaluate your entire health history to check for any red flags. It’s helpful to request medical records from your previous doctor or current specialist, just so Dr. Marupuru can survey a comprehensive record of your health.

Certain blood screenings, like some cholesterol or glucose tests, require short periods of fasting. If you’re due for a blood draw, you may need to fast for a few hours or overnight before your wellness visit (the team can let you know if this applies to you).

Lastly, write down all of your medications. Dr. Marupuru needs to know about everything you take — prescription and over-the-counter — as well as the dosages.
