Annual Physical Q & A

What is an annual physical?

An annual physical is a comprehensive medical examination used to evaluate your overall health. The exam is also sometimes referred to as a well-visit or check-up. In addition to serving as a tool to assess your health, the annual physical also helps your healthcare team establish a more trusting patient-doctor relationship that often results in better overall medical care.

What can I expect during an annual physical?

The team of experienced internal medicine physicians offers a thorough annual exam when you come to the office. They spend time evaluating your health concerns and talking to you to provide the best possible care.

Because everyone's health needs are unique, so your annual exam may not be like another. Generally, you can expect your provider to:

  • Review your medical and family history
  • Discuss your medication and supplement use
  • Assess body composition
  • Check your vitals
  • Conduct a comprehensive physical exam

After your exam is complete, your doctor reviews their findings with you and helps you devise a wellness plan to improve or maintain your health. They may also recommend updating your vaccinations, such as your flu shot, to protect you from infection.

Will I need any special tests during my annual physical?

The types of tests you need may depend on your age and gender. Common tests conducted during an annual physical include:

  • Complete blood count
  • Basic metabolic profile
  • Blood lipid level
  • Urinalysis

Your provider may request additional testing before or after your annual physical to form a more complete picture of your health.

What if I have a chronic health condition?

The team of internal medicine physicians has years of experience that enables them to medically manage any chronic health condition with which you may be dealing. Some of her areas of expertise include diabetes, hypertension, and asthma. They also offer a medical weight loss program. If you have a medical condition, your provider can support you with the expert care you need.

Your annual exam is an essential tool that helps you stay on top of your health. To schedule your annual physical, call Advance Medical Group today to request an appointment.
