Physical Exam Q & A

Why are annual exams so important?

Your annual health exam is an opportunity to learn more about your current health. It also provides the screenings you need at various stages of life. As you age, you’ll need different lab services and other types of health screenings. 

If you’re concerned about changes or symptoms you’ve noticed, your annual exam is a great place to discuss those concerns. You can also ask questions about general health and wellness topics. 

Are you thinking of trying a new diet or wondering if you should add supplements to your existing routine? Want to know the best ways to boost brain health and protect against cognitive decline? Your annual exam provides an opportunity to raise those questions with Dr. Duong. 

What happens during a physical exam?

There are aspects of your annual exam that remain constant throughout your life. A discussion of your personal and family health history is one example. You’ll also be asked about any supplements or medications you’re taking. 

Dr. Duong may also gather information about your:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart function
  • Breathing function
  • Skin condition
  • Reflexes
  • Lymph nodes
  • Nose, ear, and throat tissue

These are just a few of the routine areas of focus during an annual physical exam.  

What are specialized physical exams?

From time to time, you might need a specialized exam. The items included in these exams are often predetermined by the organization that requires them. Examples of specialized physicals include: 

Sports physical exams

Sports or athletic exams are often required for student-athletes who want to play organized sports. These visits focus on determining if you are healthy enough to participate without risk of harm. 

Pre-employment physicals 

Pre-employment physicals are sometimes required before starting a new job. These exams are usually similar to your annual physical exam and might include a drug screening.
