Annual Physicals

A routine checkup can save your life even when “there is nothing wrong”

Your annual physical exam is a wellness check that allows you to check in with one of our doctors, handle any health concerns, and discuss preventative measures for the future.


Why is it important? Because it:


  • Addresses any health questions you may have.

  • Provides an opportunity to check in on your overall health.

  • Prevents any existing conditions from worsening.

  • Diminishes risk factors on pre-existing conditions.

  • Gives you an overall look on your present and future health.


What gets examined during an Annual Physical Exam?

This involves weighing, measuring, and taking your blood pressure and pulse.


Examination of each organ 

One of our doctors will ask you about your body and go through each organ system, for example, the color of your urine, if you have any chest pains, whether there are any new occurrences with your body, etc.
