A routine physical examination ensures that you stay in good health. A physical can also be a preventive step. It allows you to catch up on vaccinations or detect a serious condition, like cancer or diabetes, before it causes problems. During a routine physical, your doctor can also check vitals, including weight, heart rate, and blood pressure. Which exams and screenings you need depends on your age, health and family history, and lifestyle choices such as what you eat, how active you are, and whether you smoke.

Immunizations, or vaccines as they’re also known, safely and effectively use a small amount of a weakened or killed virus or bacteria or bits of lab-made protein that imitate the virus in order to prevent infection by that same virus or bacteria. When you get an immunization, you’re injected with a weakened form of (or a fragment of) a disease. This triggers your body’s immune response, causing it to either produce antibodies to that particular ailment or induce other processes that enhance immunity. Then, if you’re ever again exposed to the actual disease-causing organism, your immune system is prepared to fight the infection. A vaccine will usually prevent the onset of a disease or else reduce its severity.

The goal of a wellness plan is to give back to yourself through better energy, a greater sense of wellbeing and more attention towards balance. A wellness plan creates positive growth in your life, which also leads to other improvements such as increased confidence and self-esteem. Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.

Wait times are excellent, and staff is amazing. I love the doctors, and the P.A. They take pride in their care. Most of the staff is friendly, and have excellent bedside manner. I highly recommend this doctor, and office. However the folks in the front could do better about greeting with patients.Cynthia M Gardner

Dr. Marcos and her staff are exceptional. I have been a patient for more than 20years. I found Dr. Marcos after a serious health scare at 40. I had several risk factors from diabetes to high blood pressure and serious cardiac issues. Because of her persistent medical care and expertise, my life has changed drastically for the better. Her medical practice took care of my medical needs under one roof.Veronica Benson
Marcos Medical has been my primary care provider for the last 4-5 years and the customer service / level or care is consistently excellent.
