The physical exam is an essential part of any doctor’s visit. During this visit, it is your chance to mention any complaints or concerns about your health. Your doctor will likely ask you about your lifestyle behaviors like smoking, excessive alcohol use, sexual health, diet and exercise. Vital signs are taken to access blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, and temperature.
Please get in touch with your primary care provider to set up an appointment for an annual physical if you have not done so in the past year!
