Wellness visits help patient, doctor work together on a personal health plan

Wellness visits can provide numerous patient benefits, according to Jeffrey Galles, D.O., chief medical officer of Utica Park Clinic.

“The definition of a wellness visit is unique to each patient,” Galles said. “We want to guide our patient’s care and optimize their health down the road.”

Wellness visits help primary care providers target their care based on specific factors such as a patient’s lifestyle, age, sex and family history.
