Physical Examination

A physical examination helps your Primary Care Physician (PCP) to determine the general status of your health. The exam also gives you a chance to talk to us about any ongoing pain or symptoms that you are experiencing, or any other health concerns that you might have.

A physical examination is recommended at least once a year, especially in people over the age of 50. These exams are used to:

 

  • Check for possible diseases so they can be treated early

  • Identify any issues that may become medical concerns in the future

  • Update necessary immunizations

  • Ensure that you are maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine

  • Build a relationship with your PCP
