What Are Annual Physicals and Immunizations?
At Johnson Family Medical, our team offers comprehensive primary care services, including annual physicals and immunizations (vaccinations). These routine visits allow family nurse practitioner Katherine Johnson to evaluate your overall health and identify any medical concerns as early as possible. Attending annual wellness checks can help you develop habits that promote a healthy lifestyle and create the right environment for optimal health. Katherine also provides sports physicals, as well as screenings for health conditions (such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, tuberculosis, and osteoporosis).

"I cannot recommend this office and this team more. Katherine and her team are just phenomenal. I was very impressed with the personal attention, professionalism, and level of care that she took to fully understand my needs, describe the procedure needed nd educate me on options, and all the while keep me completely comfortable throughout. I will certainly be coming back and would unequivocally recommend her practice to anyone."- A.U. / Google / May 12, 2023
"Cat Stanworth is amazing! I’ve been seeing her for years and she is always pleasant, personable, knowledgeable, and makes you feel comfortable each visit. I needed to add on after meeting Katherine and Lacy as well. So nice, helpful, felt very comfortable and cared for! Overall great place!"- A.H. / Google / Nov 26, 2022
"Seriously would not go anywhere else. Katherine Johnson actually pays attention to symptoms, patient records, and listens to her patients. SHE was the one who asked me if I’d been getting routine scans and sent me for one - the one in which we discovered my thyroid cancer had returned. Not my specialist. SHE was the one who was able to balance my medications post surgery and proved my Endocrinologist wrong, more than once. I have energy again, I can focus, and I actually lost weight instead of gained after having a complete thyroid removal. She is the best of the best!"- T.A. / Google / Nov 03, 2022
"I love seeing Mylisa and the staff. They are always so happy and are eager to greet you."- C.P. / Google / Oct 25, 2022
"I’ve been seeing Katherine for a while and greatly appreciate her level of care of listening. She has never shamed me, or talked down to me. I’ve recently expanded my care with her by getting Botox and fillers with her. I definitely made the right choice by choosing her - so happy with my results! I’ve also seen Cat at her office for PicoSure laser. Best choice ever! I have the complexion I thought I could only dream about! Highly recommend Johnson Family Medical!!"- K.W. / Google / Oct 21, 2022
What Is Included in an Annual Physical?
We generally recommend that patients schedule a preventive care exam and physical at least once every year. During the visit, Katherine and our medical assistants will collect information about your health, such as your weight, height, blood pressure, and temperature. Katherine will evaluate for abnormalities or areas of concern on your skin or throughout your body and may recommend blood work or other diagnostic tests to gain greater insight into your overall health. If necessary, she can also prescribe medications, provide routine immunizations or vaccinations (such as the flu shot), and offer guidance on managing acute or chronic health concerns.
Annual physicals FAQs
What is the purpose of an annual physical?
During an annual exam, a medical professional checks your vitals and discusses any concerns related to your personal health and wellness. Johnson Family Medical can also help you manage any chronic health conditions as needed.
What happens if we detect a health issue?
If a health issue does come up during your annual physical, our team can create a custom treatment plan moving forward. We may schedule a follow-up appointment or provide a referral to a specialist if we believe it is necessary.
How do I prepare for an annual exam?
Patients can prepare for their appointment by knowing their health history and bringing in a list of current medications and immunizations. Call our office to see if there are other ways to make sure you are fully prepared.
