Physical Exams Q & A

How do physical exams protect my health?

Your annual physical exam is all about preventive health care. When you get a routine check-up, your provider at Family Medical Doctors can detect signs of health problems at an early stage, while you can still take steps to prevent the underlying issue from developing into a serious or chronic condition.

Physical exams to detect potential problems are especially important because many chronic health conditions don’t cause symptoms in their early stages. Hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes, for example, get progressively worse for years without ever giving you a sign.

Your annual exam is also a great time to talk with your doctor about any health concerns you have. Whether you need help with weight loss or stopping smoking, this is the time to get the support you need to maintain your wellness.

What should I expect during a physical exam?

During a physical exam, the team at Family Medical Doctors takes your weight and checks your blood pressure and heart rate. Then they review your medical history and talk about any current symptoms before completing a thorough physical examination.

The services you receive may include any of the following:

  • Women’s health care, including a Pap smear
  • Men’s health care, including a testicular exam
  • Flu shot and other vaccinations as needed
  • Vision and hearing tests
  • Chronic disease risk assessment
  • Medication management
  • Diet and exercise counseling
  • Anxiety and depression management

The team at Family Medical Doctors may also refer you for blood tests.

What specialized services can I get during my physical exam?

The experts at Family Medical Doctors provide comprehensive care, including an array of diagnostic tests. 

When necessary, you can get many advanced tests done in the office at the same time as your physical, including:

  • Electrocardiograms (EKG)
  • Diagnostic ultrasound imaging
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Skin biopsies

Your provider also lets you know if you need specific health care screenings. For example, you may need to be screened for osteoporosis or one of many types of cancer, including colorectal, breast, prostate, lung, and skin cancers.
