What is the difference between an annual visit and a medical office visit?
Annual physicals and wellness visits are usually once per year and are more preventive in nature while a medical office visit is more problem focused. A medical office visit can also be a follow up visit to address concerns from your annual physical/wellness visit. During a medical office visit you may discuss a new health concern or address chronic health concerns with your provider. Your provider may then order tests, prescribe or make changes to medications, or refer you to a specialist if necessary. Reasons why you may need a medical office visit include hypertension, diabetes, medication refills, or to establish care.
