Annual Physical Exams Q & A

What are annual physical exams?

Your annual physical exam at CentralMed Urgent Care and Primary Care involves your provider asking questions about your health history, in addition to providing screenings and offering treatments as needed. This medical checkup happens at least once a year or more often if recommended by your physician.

How do I prepare for annual physical exams?

You only need to take a few simple steps to prepare for your yearly visit. Your doctor needs to see the following paperwork:

  • A list of your medications, supplements, and vitamins, if any
  • Your medical history
  • Dates of any past surgeries
  • Results of recent medical tests, if any

You should also be prepared to discuss any notable changes in your health or out-of-the-ordinary symptoms you’ve noticed. The more information you can provide for your doctor can help with an accurate diagnosis and the right treatment options.

What can I expect at annual physical exams?

When you arrive at CentralMed Urgent Care and Primary Care for your annual physical, your provider reviews your medical history and asks general questions about your health. They also check your blood pressure and vital signs. After your comprehensive exam, they might order urine, blood, or imaging tests, as needed.

Depending on your age and gender, your doctor examines you for:

  • Diabetes
  • Allergies
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Colon cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Prostate cancer

The medical team also checks for skin abnormalities, in addition to assessing your muscle strength and flexibility. You can also opt to receive immunizations during these appointments to prevent diseases like the flu or shingles. 

What are the benefits of annual physical exams?

When you have a yearly appointment with the team at CentralMed Urgent Care and Primary Care, your health records stay on file, which allows them to compare notes with every visit. That way, they can keep track of any changes in your health and monitor any present conditions.

If you show signs of any concerning issues, they can catch them early and treat them early. When health problems are detected in their beginning stages, you have a much better chance of managing or eliminating the issue and preventing more complications in the future.

Annual physical exams help you maintain your health and wellness throughout your life.
