"Jason, my eldest son, and Marcus, my youngest are both dealing with depression. Because of that they are having some issues with weight. Put them in for depression conseling but our therapist, Dr. Gray suggested we put them in the children's weight loss program. Since weight gain is intertwined with depression i agreed but I didnt really think it would have much of a difference. Everytime they come back from a session they are both different children. They have made friends and found support through the weight loss program and actually have fun working out with the other children in the program. Soso grateful thank you!"- M.F. / Google / Mar 21, 2022
"my husband heard about bhfs on google so we decided to give it a try for my daughter Landrea since our primary doctor has been booked due to covid. We did a walk in and their receptionist got us in, in 10 minutes. She was treated so warmly compared to our other doctor. They had us feeling like family. Sat us down, asked about our medical history and truly got to know us. You can't get that just anywhere. Thinking about coming here permanently."- N.E. / Google / Mar 21, 2022

What Can I Expect During My Wellness Consultation?
In one of our comfortable treatment rooms at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services, one of our skilled physicians will meet with you for your wellness visit or physical. You may be visiting for your own peace of mind or to meet the required needs of your insurance. During this visit, we will assess your height, weight, blood pressure, blood glucose, blood cholesterol, and more during a biometric health screening. Based on your blood work and what we determine during your physical, we can help you determine a course of action on how to maintain your overall health. Follow-up visits can also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.

It is typically recommended that patients have a wellness exam or physical at least once a year. This helps to ensure any potential health issues are diagnosed and treated early while helping our physicians assess your overall health and to set wellness goals. Physical exams are also often necessary to be eligible for team and competitive sports.

- Blood pressure
- Heart rate
- Lung function
- Temperature, height, weight
- Vision and hearing
- Basic physical examination
- Blood tests (liver function, cholesterol, etc.)
- Urine tests
- A general conversation about your current health, any symptoms, and concerns
How long does a physical exam usually take?
A typical physical exam for health and wellness usually takes about 30 - 45 minutes. If certain testing needs to be done that includes taking a physical sample (blood draw, urine sample, etc.), it may take more time.
