What does a physical check-up include?
The purpose of a physical exam is for a doctor to determine how healthy you are and to check for common or chronic health issues. To do this, the doctor will generally:
- Ask you about your health history and recent test results
- Check your blood pressure and heart rate to make sure they’re normal
- Visually examine you and check your body health, reflexes, motor functions, and speech
- Check your heart, lungs, throat, ears, nose, and skin for any issues
- Consider any areas of concern like a family history of heart problems
- Provide a blood test or another test if you need one
Depending on the particular type of physical you need, the doctor might also check for other things like your running ability or for any signs of cancer. Typically, the exam is really simple and easy! Also, you’ll have the opportunity to bring up other health matters with the doctor, so be sure to take advantage of this.
What doctor do I go to for a physical?
Many types of medical professionals can provide physicals. However, for a general physical exam or for any other kind of physical, the best kind of doctor to see is a primary care physician. This is because these professionals are trained to look for, prevent, and treat common and chronic health issues. This is what primary care is all about. A primary care physician can see patients of any age. If, for whatever reason, the physician can’t treat a particular health issue, the physician can provide a referral to any kind of specialist. Truly, a primary care physician is the professional you should see for your physical exam.
Here at Primary Care 360, our doctors are primary care physicians, and some are also urgent care physicians, which means they can see you for a physical on a walk-in basis. If you need a physical today, contact us about it and we’ll see what we can do!
