We recommend that everyone get an annual physical examination, and we request that our patients schedule an appointment to ensure we have ample time to examine for all possible medical signs and symptoms.
Physical exams are part of primary care and family medicine. They are a comprehensive evaluation of your current medical situation. They are considered routine examinations as doctors generally perform them yearly. Infants and toddlers, as well as those suffering from chronic conditions, and those who’ve recently undergone a procedure or surgery, may require additional physical exams.
Things to do before your physical exam:
If you are experiencing any pain or symptoms, make sure to write them down, as well as any questions you want to ask your physician. We perform thorough evaluations but sharing information and questions with us is always welcomed and encouraged. We value your insight and want you to have an active role in your health.
During your physical, your doctor may check the following:
Monitoring your overall health during a physical exam helps build your medical history. Even if you are healthy, the information documented during the evaluation provides context that doctors can later turn to should symptoms arise.
Your annual physical exam is a core part of maintaining good health. This helps your doctor review current medication, ongoing or new symptoms, discuss your lifestyle, and update necessary immunizations.
Our physicians may also request bloodwork and additional testing, which may depend on your age and gender. Women’s and men’s health screenings differ, but our family doctors are trained for both, as well as pediatric evaluations and follow-ups.
Your annual exam allows our doctors to address any health concerns you have, as well as detect any symptoms early. By catching an ailment early, we can provide appropriate treatment and/or refer you to a specialist.
