As the name implies, annual physical exams are physical evaluations your primary care specialist completes yearly to assess your overall health, screen you for illnesses and diseases, and reduce the risk of developing health issues. They can detect medical problems, such as cancer, early before they turn into serious complications.
During annual physical exams at All Health Medical Group, your specialist often completes the following:
Friendly All Health Medical Group staff members greet and check your vital signs. They weigh you, assess your body mass index (BMI), and evaluate your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs.
During a medical history review, your All Health Medical Group specialist discusses your personal and family history, symptoms you may have, your lifestyle, and medications you might take.
Your provider completes a comprehensive physical exam to evaluate your overall health. They assess your breathing, pulse, throat, eyes, abdomen, reflexes, and more. In women, they can
complete a pelvic examination and Pap test to screen for signs of cervical cancer. The specialists also offer prostate exams in men.
When needed, your All Health Medical Group provider may recommend undergoing diagnostic testing. Examples include blood tests, urine tests, asthma or allergy testing, heart function tests, nasal or throat swabs, biopsies, and more.
You may not need treatment during annual physical exams if you’re in good health, but the All Health Medical Group team offers preventive medicine services like vaccines, nutrition counseling, dietary supplements, medical weight loss, and vitamin injections.
Other treatment options include medications, inhalers, wound or fracture care, and minor surgeries. Your provider can refer you to a specialist as needed if you have a serious or complex medical problem.
Unless directed to schedule more frequent physical exams because of a health condition, see the All Health Medical Group team yearly for annual physical exams. You can book an in-person or virtual visit any time you have questions and concerns about your health or experience new or unusual symptoms.
