Physical Exams Q & A

Why do I need a physical exam?

Even though you might feel well, sometimes you aren’t aware that something in your body isn’t right. That’s why it’s important to have all of your vital signs checked yearly. Being proactive about seeing your doctor for a physical exam is one of the best ways to safeguard your health.

Your doctor keeps a record of your exam results and compares them from year to year, allowing the detection of any changes. If you have any pre-existing conditions, monitoring your health on a regular basis can ensure that your body continues to function properly. A physical exam can also help ward off any future problematic issues.

What happens at a physical exam?

When you visit Sunshine Walk-In Clinic, your expert health care provider examines the following:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature
  • Breathing

If any health concerns are noticed, your doctor talks with you about a treatment plan to get your health on the right track.

Your doctor also performs a physical assessment of your body where the following are checked:

  • Reflexes
  • Mobility
  • Abdomen
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Nose
  • Throat
  • Overall appearance

Once your vital statistics are recorded, your doctor sits down with you to review your health over the past year, paying close attention to any changes.

How do I prepare for my physical exam?

When visiting Sunshine Walk-In Clinic, you should write down any questions you have before you arrive. You’ll have the opportunity to consult with your doctor about your concerns, or you may simply just want to talk about your family’s medical history.

If your doctor needs to withdraw blood for tests, you may be asked to fast the night before and the day of your physical exam. It’s also recommended that you arrive with a full bladder so a urine sample can be taken.

Whether you need a physical exam for yourself or your child, Sunshine Walk-In Clinic offers care for the whole family. Schedule an appointment today by calling the office or using the online booking tool. You may also walk into the office when it’s convenient for you.
