Even when you’re feeling healthy, a simple check-up is one of the best ways to be proactive at identifying your potential risks.

What is an Annual Wellness Exam?

The Annual Wellness Exam is a yearly appointment with a medical professional to ensure you are up-to-date on receiving preventative healthcare services and address any current health issues.

Anyone 18+ is eligible to get an annual wellness exam.
Most PPO insurance plans, Medicare, and select HMOs cover an annual wellness exam at Marque with no out-of-pocket costs to the patient. If the doctor orders further tests or screenings as medically necessary, there may be an additional cost which will be reviewed with your beforehand. Please check your plan’s benefits and eligibility or contact us to learn more.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many individuals delayed important check-ups and health screenings, resulting in an increased risk for long-term health issues. Our team of doctors have put together a wellness exam that includes a Post-Pandemic Health Assessment, which focuses on identifying risks associated with a change in lifestyle.

As part of our Wellness Exam with Post-pandemic Assessment, we have partnered with WestPacific Labs to offer our patients a thorough analysis of their blood profile that can unhide potential issues related to changes in lifestyle as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. While it is important to routinely check your blood based on your risk indicators, it is especially important to get tested now after changes in physical and mental activity. It will help raise awareness of potentially more serious health conditions.

1. Metabolic Panel with Renal Function

What is it?
A comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is a test that measures 14 different substances in your blood. It provides important information about your body’s chemical balance and metabolism. Metabolism is the process of how the body uses food and energy.

What does it include?
A CMP includes tests for the following:

Glucose: A type of sugar and your body’s main source of energy.
Calcium: One of the body’s most important minerals. Calcium is essential for proper
functioning of your nerves, muscles, and heart.
Sodium, Potassium, Carbon Dioxide, and Chloride: These are electrolytes, electrically
Charged minerals that help control the amount of fluids and the balance of acids and bases in
your body.
Albumin: a protein made in the liver.
Total protein: Which measures the total amount of protein in the blood.
ALP (alkaline phosphatase), ALT (alanine transaminase), and AST (aspartate aminotransferase):
These are different enzymes made by the liver.
Bilirubin: A waste product made by the liver.
BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and Creatinine: waste products removed from your blood by your

What is it used for?
A CMP is used to check several body functions and processes, including:


    • Liver and kidney health


    • Blood sugar levels


    • Blood protein levels


    • Acid and base balance


    • Fluid and electrolyte balance


    • Metabolism


2. Complete Blood Count

What is it?
A complete blood count or CBC is a blood test that measures many different parts and features of your blood.

What does it include?
A CBC includes tests for the following:

Red blood cells, which carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body
White blood cells, which fight infection. CBC test measures the total number of white cells in
your blood.
Platelets, which help your blood to clot and stop bleeding
Hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs and to the rest of
your body
Hematocrit, a measurement of how much of your blood is made up of red blood
A complete blood count may also include measurements of chemicals and other substances in your blood. These results can give your health care provider important information about your overall health and risk for certain diseases.

What is it used for?
A complete blood count is a commonly performed blood test that is often included as part of a routine checkup. Complete blood counts can be used to:

Help detect a variety of disorders including infections, anemia, diseases of the immune system,
and blood cancers
Diagnose a blood disease, infection, immune system and disorder, or other medical conditions
Keep track of an existing blood disorder


3. Lipid Panel

What is it?
Lipids are a group of fats and fat-like substances that are important constituents of cells and sources of energy. A lipid panel measures the level of specific lipids in the blood. Two important lipids, cholesterol and triglycerides, are transported in the blood by lipoproteins (also called lipoprotein particles). Each type of lipoprotein contains a combination of cholesterol, triglyceride, protein, and phospholipid molecules. The particles measured with a lipid panel are classified by their density into high-density lipoproteins (HDL), low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL).

What does it include?
A Lipid Panel includes tests for the following:

Total cholesterol—measures all the cholesterol in all the lipoprotein particles
High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C)—measures the cholesterol in HDL particles; often
called “good cholesterol” because HDL-C takes up excess cholesterol and carries it to the liver for
Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)—calculates or measures the cholesterol in LDL
particles; often called “bad cholesterol” because it deposits excess cholesterol in walls of blood
vessels, which can contribute to atherosclerosis. Usually, the amount of LDL-C is calculated using
the results of total cholesterol, HDL-C, and triglycerides.
Triglycerides—measures all the triglycerides in all the lipoprotein particles; most is in the very
low-density lipoproteins (VLDL).

What is it used for?
Monitoring and maintaining healthy levels of these lipids is important in staying healthy. While the body produces the cholesterol needed to function properly, the source for some cholesterol is the diet. Eating too much of foods that are high in saturated fats and trans unsaturated fats (trans fats) or having an inherited predisposition can result in a high level of cholesterol in the blood. The extra cholesterol may be deposited in plaques on the walls of blood vessels. Plaques can narrow or eventually block the opening of blood vessels, leading to hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) and increasing the risk of numerous health problems, including heart disease and stroke.

Yes, we do. While most people who have been infected with COVID-19 recover and return to normal health, some can have lingering symptoms that last for weeks, or even months. This is why our team has put together a wellness exam that includes a comprehensive Post COVID-19 Infection Health Assessment. We will review long-term symptoms, psychological ailments, conduct advanced imaging of the eyes, x-Ray lungs and test for functional lung capacity, perform a cardiovascular evaluation, and order blood work to determine if there may be more long-term conditions from contracting the disease.
