    What Does a Wellness Physical Exam Include?

    We take a tailored approach to wellness, taking into account each patient’s age, overall health, and activity levels. Consequently, the specifics of the exam may vary from patient to patient. In general, a wellness physical exam typically includes:

    • A thorough review of your personal and family medical history, encompassing any existing conditions and medications you are currently taking.
    • An evaluation of key health indicators such as vision and hearing, cardiac and pulmonary function, blood pressure, pulse, and reflexes.
    • A brief physical examination to detect any visible signs of potential health concerns.

    As a patient, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any medical worries you may have.

    Physical exams play an integral role in gaining a comprehensive understanding of your health. Often, they serve as routine and critical screenings for preventable conditions. Individuals of all age groups should consider undergoing physical exams periodically throughout the year.

We meticulously check vital signs like your heartbeat, ensuring there are no irregular rhythms.
