Annual Well Woman Exam
An annual exam is part of your health care. If it has been more than 12 months, please contact your health care provider to schedule an exam.
What is an annual exam?An annual exam is a once-a-year visit to your primary care provider for a general health check, including a breast exam and pap smear. An annual exam visit does not include discussion of new problems or detailed review of chronic conditions. Annual exams are also called routine check-up, yearly exam, annual pap, and preventive visit.
Please schedule a separate appointment if you have health concerns other than your routine physical exam.
What should I expect during my annual exam?
What happens if you have a new health problem when you come for your annual exam?
You and your provider will need to decide whether to use the time that day to address your problem, in which case your annual exam visit can be rescheduled. Or you may choose to go ahead with your annual exam, and to defer the health concern to another visit. Scheduled appointment times do not allow for both.
