Physical Exams Q&A
What are physical exams?
Physical exams are comprehensive health evaluations that take place in your health care provider’s office. Your provider performs a series of simple tests and assessments, plus lab testing when necessary, that help them create a detailed report of your health status. Through these tests and measurements, they can detect signs of illness, nutrient deficiencies, and, for children, developmental delays that need addressing.
Most physicians recommend getting a physical exam yearly. These are especially important for children who are developing as well as aging individuals whose disease risks go up over time.
Your provider at Triad Primary Care helps you decide how often you should get a physical exam. Toward the end of each of these visits, they provide recommendations on how you can improve your lifestyle and wellness leading up to your next visit.
What type of physical exam can I get?
There are several types of physical exams available at Triad Primary Care, which you can get on an as-needed basis.
