Physicals Q & A

Why would I need a physical?

A regular physical at Enhanced Medical Centers is a great way to stay one step ahead of possible health problems. During these visits, your provider is able to record vital information to spot any alarming trends, which allows them to intervene in a timely manner, improving your outcome.

Physical exams are also great opportunities to bring up concerns you might have about your health. As you go through different stages in life, your health undergoes significant changes and the team at Enhanced Medical Centers is with you every step of the way.

Outside of preventive care, you might need to undergo a physical for school, for work, or before you participate in sports. The team at Enhanced Medical Centers is well-versed in these types of physicals and ensures that your health care bases are covered.

What can I expect during a physical?

While every physical at Enhanced Medical Centers is tailored to your unique needs, you should expect the following:

  • A review of your current health
  • A review of your medical history
  • A recording of your blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature
  • A check of your heart and lungs
  • An abdominal exam
  • A head and neck exam

In addition to this checklist, the team assesses your overall appearance and also discusses any specific concerns you may have regarding your health.

When the exam is over, your provider reviews measures you can take to safeguard your health and protect yourself against some of the more common chronic conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular issues.

How often should I have a physical?

There’s no single answer to this as it depends upon your needs. If you’re looking for general care, an annual physical should suffice. If you need a specialized physical, the schedule is largely dictated by the organization asking for the physical.

And if you’re dealing with chronic health issues like arthritis, your provider will want to see you more frequently to check on your health.
