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.
