Preventive Care and Wellness
At Virginia Mason, the Wellness Visit is dedicated to preventive measures and routine screening for medical conditions which can be improved with early detection and positive lifestyle practices.
Together you and your provider will determine which screening tests are appropriate for you and how to best support your health goals.
Wellness is a gift to yourself and your family. We encourage you to schedule a Wellness Visit, learn about preventive health measures and make them part of your daily life.
