An annual physical is a comprehensive consultation aimed at helping you maintain overall wellness and detecting any potential health issues at an early stage. The team of internal medicine and primary care experts at AZZ Medical Associates dedicates ample time to carefully evaluate your health during these check-ups. This thorough assessment ensures that you are progressing towards the health goals that you and your doctor have set together. By conducting annual physicals, AZZ Medical Associates strives to provide proactive and personalized healthcare to optimize your well-being.
During your visit to AZZ Medical Associates, the following steps will be completed:
1. Reviewing your medical history:
– Your doctor will carefully review your medical records and family health history. This helps them understand your current health conditions, if any require chronic care management, and assess your risk for developing future health issues.
2. Discussing your concerns:
– If you have noticed any changes in your health or have specific concerns, your doctor will discuss them with you. They will address any new symptoms, investigate further if needed, and provide reassurance when appropriate.
3. Completing a physical exam:
– Your doctor will conduct a physical examination, which includes measuring your weight and height to calculate your body mass index (BMI). This assessment helps determine if you are at a healthy weight, underweight, or overweight. They will also check your vital signs, such as heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, and reflexes.
– Your doctor will draw blood for laboratory tests. These tests can identify various health issues, including high cholesterol, elevated blood sugar (indicative of diabetes), infections, and nutrient deficiencies.
– Your annual physical is an opportune time for screenings such as a prostate exam (for men), Pap smear (for women), or breast exam. If your doctor has any concerns regarding your health, they may recommend additional diagnostic procedures or refer you to a specialist.
The primary objective of your annual physical is to identify, treat, and prevent health problems. Following the examination, your doctor will inform you about any findings. If no issues are detected, you can schedule another annual physical for the following year.
In the event that further diagnostic investigation is required, your doctor will discuss the results with you and collaborate on determining the next steps. They may also provide referrals to specialists if necessary.
If there are unhealthy habits that need to be addressed, such as smoking, weight management, or dietary improvements, your doctor will equip you with the necessary information and support to make positive changes.
To ensure you stay on top of your health, contact AZZ Medical Associates today or conveniently book an appointment online, especially if it has been a while since your last annual physical. Same-day appointments are often available for added convenience.
