Choosing Wisely – Annual Exams

Physicians and healthcare providers in the Cypress Health Region have been participating in a national campaign focused on engaging in conversations with patients about unnecessary tests and treatments.  The Choosing Wisely initiative calls on clinicians and patients to make smart and effective choices to ensure high-quality care.

The Choosing Wisely campaign is built upon a growing list of tests, treatments, and procedures for which there is strong evidence of overuse, waste, or even possible harm to patients. Dr. Michele Jagga discusses annual exams and  the importance of choosing wisely.

Watch as Dr. Jagga explains why more is not always better when it comes to medical tests and treatments such as annual exams.
