An annual physical is critical to maintaining good health, said Dr. Clay Campbell of Lakeside North Family Medicine. And physicals really need to start a little earlier in life than you might think.

“Once you get to the age of 30, it’s real important to get that general wellness check with an established local doctor," Dr. Campbell said.  “You need that relationship with a doctor for general maintenance even if you don’t have a family history of something significant like heart disease.”
