Physicals Q & A

Why do I need a physical?

Your annual physical is an opportunity for you and your doctor to assess your health status and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment, medication, or habits. Your doctor can evaluate and address anything and everything that might be a concern.

Annual physicals are an important form of preventive care. The team at CareOne Internal Medicine and Primary Care uses your annual visit as a chance to monitor chronic conditions, create personalized treatment plans, and, if needed, help you refocus on your health. Your annual physical exam with your doctor serves as a reminder to make improvements between appointments.

A lot of people use their annual physical to bring up specific health concerns that develop over the course of the year. If you haven’t made a separate appointment for those concerns, you can always bring them up at your annual visit.

What happens during a physical?

At your annual physical, you can update your doctor about any changes to your personal or family health history. Your doctor can then pay special attention to any areas of concern in your health records.

After answering questions about your health, your doctor performs a physical exam. They can assess your skin, your mental state, and your motor function. During the physical exam, your doctor checks:

  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature
  • How your heart and lungs sound
  • Balance and reflexes
  • Ears, eyes, and throat
  • Neck glands
  • Abdomen

Your doctor can also address issues specifically related to male and female health during your appointment.

Your doctor may also order blood work, urinalysis, or other tests based on your age and risk factors. Once these results come in, they may ask you to come back for a follow-up appointment to review your results and provide specific recommendations on how to maintain your health.
