Annual Physicals Q & A

Do I really need an annual physical?

Yes! It’s a common misconception to think that you can skip over your annual physical because you never get sick or because you’re generally healthy. The fact is that chronic diseases, like heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and kidney disease (to name a few) don’t develop overnight.

Annual physicals are your one-on-one time with your dedicated physician to talk about any changes you’ve noticed in your health. Your doctor also performs several types of evaluations to check for early indicators of chronic ailments and, if needed, starts you on treatment and health management plans.

What should I expect from an annual physical?

Your annual physical at Yee Medicine and Pediatric Associates is likely going to include a variety of screenings and tests. After sitting and talking with you, your dedicated physician may perform any of the following:

  • Blood pressure check
  • Abdominal check
  • Neurological evaluation
  • Body mass index (BMI) calculation
  • Blood or urine laboratory testing
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG) testing for your heart

You may also receive updates on vaccinations during your annual physical — this is especially important if you’re getting ready to travel overseas. Or if it’s flu season, this is your chance to get your flu shot, too.

Do I need to prepare for my annual physical?

It depends. If you’re new to the practice, you’re going to have some new patient paperwork that you need to fill out before your exam. It’s helpful to transfer over any medical records from prior primary care physicians, or urgent care or emergency room visits.

To further help you prepare for your annual physical at Yee Medicine and Pediatric Associates, you should:

  • Write down any questions or concerns you may have
  • Make a list of your medications and dosages, including over-the-counter types
  • Ask if you need to fast for any on-site blood draws

Not only do Dr. Yee and the team at Yee Medicine and Pediatric Associates specialize in annual wellness exams, but they can also perform comprehensive work physicals. For instance, if you need a medical exam to obtain or maintain your commercial driver’s licence the team can help. They even fill out your required paperwork, so make sure you bring your forms to your appointment.
