PinnacleHealth: The importance of wellness visits

Dr. Robert Nielson, Medical Director for PinnacleHealth joined us in the studio to remind us of the importance of seeing a physician for general wellness check-ups. PH_logo_FINAL_V

“Staying healthy means being proactive rather than reactive. Establishing a relationship with your primary care provider (PCP) allows him/her to know your health history, habits and lifestyle. All of which play a role in your overall well-being,” explains Dr. Nielson.

“Health complications can be managed or prevented with annual visits. We want patients to be a part of their healthcare team and preventative care and an ongoing dialogue is how we keep patients healthy or restore their health.”

PinnacleHealth has more than 220 family care providers in four counties. Visit their website or call at 231-8900 to learn more or find a physician.
