Physical Exams Q &A

What is Included in a Physical Exam?

A physical exam begins with a discussion between the physician and the patient about the patient’s current health and medical history. The patient’s vital signs, including weight, respiration, and blood pressure, are also collected. The doctor will listen to the heart and lungs to determine whether there are any irregularities that indicate a heart or lung problem. The doctor will complete a check of the throat, tonsils, lymph nodes, ears, and eyes. The doctor will also check the patient’s reflexes. This is also an opportunity for any routine health screenings to be completed and for the patient to ask any questions about their health and well-being.

Why Should You Have a Physical Exam?

Routine physical exams allow the doctor to develop an intimate knowledge of the patient’s health, which enables her to spot any changes quickly. If the doctor discovers any changes in the patient’s well-being or any signs of illness, this will allow the doctor to order further tests and begin treatment as soon as possible. Most medical conditions are more easily treated when diagnosed in their earliest stages, and routine physical exams are an excellent way to keep an eye on your health and well-being, both through health screenings and the physical exam.

What Questions Should I Ask During a Physical Exam?

During the annual physical, patients have an opportunity to ask questions about their health and well-being and to talk about any changes he or she is experiencing. Some common questions for physicians include:

  • What screenings should I have?
  • Are all of my signs within normal limits?
  • What symptoms should I look out for, considering my age and medical history?
  • What are the best ways to manage my health?
  • What conditions do I have a higher risk of developing?
  • Is my health better, worse, or the same since my last visit?
  • What changes should I make to improve my health?
