Annual exams with a trusted provider are essential for monitoring and maintaining health. Dr. Nance and her team build long-term relationships with their patients so that they can stay up to date on any changes or developments. Most annual exams follow a standard routine and will begin with collecting the patient’s medical history and discussing any changes to the patient’s health regarding illnesses, lifestyle, and general wellbeing. The clinician will also perform a physical exam to evaluate the person for signs of any medical conditions or illnesses.
