Physicals Q&A

What happens during physicals?

Physicals are hands-on evaluations that health care providers perform to get a sense of your current state of health. Though the various physicals include many of the same health checks and tests, no physical exam is precisely like another.

The specifics of your physical at Brunswick Medical will depend on the type you need, your age, and your health history.  Physical exams usually include a: 

  • Review your medical history
  • Measuring your height and weight
  • Checking your blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature
  • Evaluating your ears, eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Listening to your heart and lungs
  • Checking your reflexes
  • Palpating your internal organs
  • Assessing your emotional well-being
  • And more

Sex-specific health checks include evaluating reproductive health and screening for health problems like cervical cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.

What are the types of physicals?

Brunswick Medical is a family medicine practice providing comprehensive primary care services for patients 12 and older. Our medical practice offers many types of physicals, including:

Annual physical

The annual physical exam is a thorough evaluation of your total health.  our medical providers use the information gathered during the exam to monitor how your health changes from one year to the next.

School physical

School physicals are required by public and private schools. They usually include school-specific health forms and immunization records. Dr. Chandler can complete the school physical during your child’s annual physical exam.

Sports physical

A sports physical determines if it’s safe for you to participate in the physical activity of your choice.

DOT physical exam

Anyone who drives a commercial vehicle needs a US Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exam. This exam ensures that you can safely operate your vehicle without endangering yourself or the public.

I’m in good health. Why do I need an annual physical exam?

An annual physical exam, also called a wellness exam, helps you stay healthy. Your annual physical exam is a complete evaluation of your whole health. It includes screening tests to help find any health problems before you have symptoms.

The annual physical exam also lets you and Dr. Chandler get to know each other, improving your patient-provider relationship. The more comfortable you are with your provider, the more likely you’ll share vital health information.
