What are annual physical exams?
An annual physical exam is provided by your primary care provider to check up on your weight, blood pressure, vision, hearing, and any other health concerns you may have.
Even if a patient is in their 20s and 30s, doctors suggest patients schedule an annual wellness exam every year. Consult with our providers today.
Preparing for an annual physical exam
A few simple steps to ready yourself for a physical will help you get the most out of your appointment and time.
Prepare a medical list of what you’re taking. Even if it is over the counter or prescribed by a different doctor or specialist, your primary care provider needs to know to ensure no medications affect each other.
Prepare a list of questions and health concerns you may want to know more about. Your doctor will offer you their expertise to educate you and to make sure you have a clear understanding.
If you had surgery, received a vaccine, or changes in your physical, your family doctor needs to know in order to help you achieve a healthier lifestyle.
You may want to know specific readings from a medical test you recently took. Your primary care doctor will help you figure out the best ways to improve your understanding of your results.
Annual physical exam benefits
Early detection and prevention of diseases are one of the biggest benefits of annual physical exams. The earlier you can detect a disease, the earlier you can take steps to take preventive measures and actions.
An example of early detection to prevent heart disease may be a blood test to evaluate your results. A blood test provides great insights into your cholesterol levels (LDL and HDL), abnormal traces of substances, and it also measures your heart, kidney, and liver function.
