Annual Physical

Your Yearly Check-Up for Total Health Maintenance

During an annual physical examination, a thorough evaluation of the patient’s overall health is conducted, encompassing various vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature. 

A comprehensive medical history is obtained, discussing any new symptoms or concerns since the last visit, along with any changes in medications or lifestyle habits. Physical examinations typically include assessment of body systems, such as cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, and musculoskeletal, checking for any abnormalities or signs of illness. 

Additional screenings may be ordered based on age, gender, and individual risk factors, including blood tests for cholesterol levels, glucose, and other biomarkers, as well as screenings for conditions such as cancer or osteoporosis. The annual physical serves as a proactive measure to monitor health status, detect potential issues early, and provide personalized recommendations for maintaining or improving overall well-being.
