Book Annual Physicals with Our Doctor Today
Annual physicals provide you with the knowledge you need to better manage your physical health. This knowledge is also used to detect any health concerns before they turn into more serious problems. We regularly conduct physicals for teens, men, and women.
During your annual physical, our doctor will ask questions to make sure that you are feeling well. We will also ask you to describe any problems that you may be experiencing. Generally men's wellness visits may include a testicular and prostate exam. A women's wellness visit may include a breast exam or Pap smear. If there is any cause for concern, our physician will recommend follow-up testing or conduct any additional tests. Physical exams are regular screenings that can detect minor problems before they become major health issues.
Sports Physicals for Authorization to Play
Anyone who has played sports knows that it is important to pay extra attention to your health. Playing sports is a great way to have fun while staying healthy. Most school systems and sports clubs require an annual physical before your child can play a sport. Listening to the heart, checking the body, and conducting an examination of vitals may detect otherwise asymptomatic health conditions. Don’t let your child risk his or her health on the field by not knowing if there are any concerns. However, sports physicals aren't just for kids. Even adults need to visit the doctor to make sure they are healthy before hitting the field, court, or rink.
