The following types of physicals are most commonly offered:
Yes. The best way to avoid getting sick or suffering from any chronic conditions is to prevent them from happening. While you may think you’re healthy — and you probably are — chronic health issues can take years to develop. Conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and arthritis, tend to gradually get worse over time if left untreated.
By having a good relationship with one of our providers, you’ll have a track record with someone who knows your health. You can feel confident in knowing that any potential alerts are caught right from the get-go, so you can enjoy a long, healthy life.
It depends on your needs. In a routine adult or child wellness physical, for example, you will likely need to have your blood drawn. This will allow our provider to check for certain biomarkers, including cholesterol, blood glucose, and inflammation abnormalities. He or she will also evaluate your weight, blood pressure, and heart rhythm. You can even get caught up on immunizations during your physical. This is also your chance to ask any questions you may have, or to go over any concerns that arise during your physical.
While it will take a few days for your lab results to come back, you’ll probably only need to make a follow-up appointment if something in your blood triggers a red flag. If you’re in need of a special circumstance physical, such as an employment or school physical, other requested screening options and lab work are also available.
