Your annual exam will begin with a complete health history, including both personal and familial medical information that can help Dr. Louis-Jacques identify potential risks factors for serious diseases. Next, your vital signs will be taken, including your weight and blood pressure, and a clinical breast exam and pelvic exam may be performed. You'll also have other evaluations to look for possible disease indicators and to assess your overall health and wellness. Depending on the results of your exam or your symptoms or health risks, Dr. Louis-Jacques may order lab work including urinalysis and blood tests or diagnostic imaging. She'll also be able to provide plenty of guidance to help you stay healthy and answer any questions you may have about your health.
Annual exams are important to ensure your health needs are met as your body changes with age. Even when you're young, and menopause is years away, your body's needs change with each passing year. Plus, diseases can develop with few or no symptoms, and have an annual exam ensures those issues are caught in their earliest stages when treatment is simpler and less costly. Finally, having an exam each year provides Dr. Louis-Jacques with an ongoing record of your health that can help her provide more appropriate treatment tailored to your specific needs.
Be sure to have a list of any medications you may be taking, including any vitamins or nutritional supplements. If you've had other treatments or lab work performed by another doctor since your last visit with Dr. Louis-Jacques, have those results forwarded to the office before your visit or bring copies with you so your medical history is as complete as possible.
