Recent patient review

I was seen at this urgent care clinic by nurse practitioner “Nellie” and registered by Jessica. My daughter made the appointment and we were to be seen in an hour. Ms. Nellie diagnosed my shingles and treated me for same. I cannot thank her enough for her care as I had been misdiagnosed at another PHS clinic in Clovis. I hope she and Jessica as well as the assessment RN receive notice of my thanks! Date of service March 16, 2019. WELL DONE!!! Marian Lee Smith

I am so sick. Went here and was given excellent care. The nurse was excellent and the nurse practitioner was knowledgeable, kind, and humorous. I needed that! I’ve got the bad flu and they put me on fluids. I feel better.

Physical Exam FAQs

  • How much does a physical exam cost in Corrales?

    Without insurance, a physical exam can cost anywhere between $50 and $200. With insurance, the cost of a physical exam is usually completely covered at least once a year, or requires a copayment of $10 to $50. Book a physical exam today to get estimated costs in Corrales today.

  • How can I book a physical exam in Corrales?

    If you are looking for a physical exam in Corrales, Solv can help you book an appointment. Simply search for Corrales-area doctors, find a provider, and book the most convenient time for you. Be sure to include “physical exam” as your reason for visit.

  • Where can I get a physical exam in Corrales?

    In general, physical exams will be available at Corrales-area urgent care centers, retail clinics and primary care doctor offices. While walk-in appointments are typically available, booking a visit online will reduce your wait time and ensure you get a physical as quickly and easily as possible.

  • Can I make a same-day appointment for a physical exam in Corrales?

    Same-day and next-day appointments for physical exams can easily be booked directly through Solv. Simply search for Corrales-area doctors, find a provider, and book an appointment for a physical as soon as today.

  • Who should get a physical exam?

    It is generally recommended that everyone get a physical exam yearly. This can help detect problems early and begin treatment as early as possible. While the components of your physical may vary with age, it is important to have one annually at all ages.

  • Are video visits available with physical exam clinics in Corrales?

    Although a complete physical exam cannot be completed over telehealth, your doctor may offer an annual wellness visit (AWV). An AWV is designed to evaluate patients over video and can replace annual physicals for individuals who have already established a relationship with their provider. AWVs do not require BMI and blood pressure measurements. These can either be self-reported or delayed.

  • Is a physical exam covered by my insurance?

    Many health insurers offer one annual physical for free. If the visit isn’t completely covered, patients will have to pay a $10 to $50 copay. It is uncommon for medical insurances to not offer annual physical coverage.

  • Are video visits with general practitioners covered by my insurance?

    AWVs are generally covered once per calendar year. Your insurance coverage for in-person physicals will be similar to the coverage provided for AWVs. Book a telemedicine visit to see estimated costs in the Corrales area.

No line. And we were out quick. Got my sons physical in no time!!

- Verified patient on 7/31

I am so very BLESSED! Dr. Ann helped me sooo much!! I am in Urgent Care, (it seems like) at least 2-3 times a month. I am mentally and physically disabled, a Single Parent and I have 3 children. I was in there for 1 1/2 hours, due to everything being my fault. Dr. Ann was the only Doctor that was able to find the true cause of my sickness. I have been sick for 2 months, even went to TMC a few weeks ago. All along, the fevers, pain in my head, not sleeping, and sore throat, wasn’t “Viral”. It was from an Ear Infection that had 2 months of dried up blood, (that turned black and hard) in my Ear Canal. She took up so much of her time on me, that I PRAY TO GOD, that HE Blesses her! All this time. Since July 17th, my birthday. I had gotten a “Daith piercing” to stop migraines from the TBI. Well, I blood a lot from the piercing, and when she said “she couldn’t see inside my ear because of the Wax buildup”, I told her the truth. I went into Urgent Care thinking I had the Covid, or Mono (Dr. Ann just diagnosed my 17 year old with it 6 days ago) and it was neither one. My Ear was infected. It took her 1 1/2 hours to get 6 pieces of, (what looked like) black coal out of my Ear Canal. It was actually 2 months of dried up blood. I’m cannot THANK Dr. Ann or the entire Staff, enough! My eldest sister, is Dr. Annie Pearson. I do hope one day they can meet because my own sister was shocked that TMC didn’t catch it! GOOD JOB Urgent Care for hiring Dr. Ann at Old Spanish Trail in Tucson, Arizona!!!!! Thank you, Maureen Pearson

This was the worst trip to this.location in 10 years. I had an appointment at 2:30 for a school physical. Got there an checked in at 2:15. There were two walk INS and one other appointment person listed. Took forever to complete Dr potion of appointment, then we were ready to leave, and we could not get paperwork for physical because the Dr did not check is out in the back. I as I waited for about 15 minutes, the Dr was seen going in and out of two other appointment...I asked multiple times for the front desk person to check in why we were not checked out... She was snippy about nothing she could do until Dr checked us out. I said can you just bill me and we will go. She said we.could go and she could bill, but we could not have the school physical paperwork. I told her she should have checked on why I was not checked out after the last person's left, before the Dr went into the next patient. I then said it.mau be possible that their procedures need to be looked at. The front desk person snipped, ' do you want this to be your last visit over the last 10years' as she walked to the back.... When she returned, she was able to finalize me getting checked out. For having an appointment, and it not being busy, it should not have taken an hour and 15 minutes from the time we checked olin until we could leave....

The young lady at the front desk was amazing! In don’t remember her name but she was had very long eyelashes (extensions). She was a younger African American woman. The waits were terribly long due to all the sickness and Covid issues. I was there for my child’s sports physical so I was able to wait inside while all the sick people were waiting in their cars. Long story short, because I waited in the office I witnessed how she handled all the people. She was professional and friendly at all times. A woman who was frustrated came in and was not speaking very nice to the employees. The young lady at the front desk never lost her cool. She answered the questions the best she could and she remained pleasant. I was so impressed. Most people would have snapped back at the rude lady! Y’all are slammed with people! People are stressed and tired of waiting(2 hours for some) and they don’t feel well….but I was so impressed with how the young lady and the other ladies handled this very stressful time. Good for you! Please let your employees know that their kindness doesn’t go unnoticed.

I was not feeling good but knowing what I have made me feel better, just not physically.

- Verified patient on 3/16

My physical problem was addressed and medications prescribed. The physician also suggested supplements that I began taking and I feel that they have helped. I appreciate the additional information.

- Verified patient on 10/14

Communication was really confusing throughout this process. Scheduling an appointment was very easy and convenient. Even just calling the center for information was very helpful because they gave clear instructions on how to book an appointment. After scheduling an appointment there was a portion for a “video”. I didn’t know this was a video call with a physician but just a “how to prepare for testing” video, so I had gone to the center thinking that. The physician on call was very informative but our calls kept cutting off. After getting scheduled for a Covid test I was waiting in my car to get tested for about 20 mins til I went inside to inquire. Before inquiring, no one told me I had to move my car to the testing slots or any information on what to do next. I had moved my car and waited. The test was done quickly and efficiently. My biggest concern was the communication and wait time. Since I was told to wait in my car for most of the visit it was difficult to contact the center. It would’ve been convenient if I received text messages or emails just so I understood what was happening and keep physical contact to a minimum.

Seamless. Took my sons for school physical and they got us in and out with no wait. Staff friendly and welcoming

- Verified patient on 8/11

I had an appointment at 2pm. I arrived 10 minutes prior to 2pm and checked in. I was scheduled for covid19 test by curbside. I waited in my vehicle until 2:40 and several people arrived after me and still no one ever came out to administer the test. I called them and told them I had to leave for a different appointment and that I had been there 10 minutes before my 2pm appointment and here it was 2:40 and I still had not been tested. Reception said they don't really do appointments its just a slot and that they had actual patient inside that was getting a physical. I ended up leaving for my other appointment and had to return back for my covid19. I was then told I had to go inside for test not curbside due to weather and it was a little chilly but no rain.? I ended up getting tested at 5pm. Too long if a wait time after I did what I was told when I called to make my 2pm appointment. I completed on line paperwork, uploaded insurance, uploaded drivers license, completed my profile arrived 10 minutes prior to my 2pm appointment as instructed.

It's a walk in clinic, and I sprained my ankle on Saturday, (walked in Monday). The receptionist saw that I hobbled in and immediately stood up and asked if I needed a wheelchair, and grabbed me one quite quickly. Then, we waited a whole, a bit boring and not the best. When we got in, they took me to an evaluation room, did a basic physical, etc. And the guy was so caring and gentle, he took everything into consideration, and then we went to the x-ray room. He was extremely helpful with assisting in the wheelchair, helping me get onto the table kindly, and being extremely gentle while twisting my ankle/legs the way they needed to be for the x-rays. He acted as if he'd tap it like a wine glass as if it would break under the slightest touch. Then, they wheeled me to my room and the wait wasnt bad at all, and the nurse/doctor I'm not sure which one, was amazing! I never got a sprain before and she explained it so well, answered the million questions I had, and was very friendly/patient. The doctor was a little rougher to get my boot on, but still a sweet older lady. I had a great experience.. let's hope it's not broken and just a sprain.

Elise is EXCELLENT and extremely knowledgeable in her field of accupuncture. The front desk staff were pretty decent. The facility is very clean as things should be! The restroom was equally clean! Very much appreciated as most places do not have such tidy restrooms. I also really appreciated the pleasant art works. Most of them were very, "Happy," pieces! 😊 Im sure this will fall on deaf ears. However, Insurances need to cover more things like these since everyone's determined no one can get any real pain meds of any kind, any more. Afew ppl ruined it for the 50 million suffering in moderate to severe pain every day. Alive but not living, having lousy qualities of life. 😢 Degenerative anything simply doesn't improve, thus the word, "Degenerative." Tai Chi is also helpful, so is massage therapy, water therapy, and, sitting on the back of a walking horse. Big Pharma have not gone and found any viable replacements to the natural, plant based medicines. Both Tylenol and NSAIDS will destroy your liver and kidneys if that's all you've access to. It's merely a matter of time. It's not the Gov't's business. It's between a PHYSICIAN and their personal patient. The Physician who sees that patient, knows that patient as a human and, they should make the decisions together. It's called Physician/Patient privalege. (If this were Lawyer/ Client Privalege there would never have been an issue. Lawyers would have immediately sued.) There was a reason those medicines were used safely for the most part, for over 200 yrs. They're the only ones to fit perfectly like a key into those pain receptors in the brain. According to the DEA the ONLY 2 problem drugs that regularly kill ARE: Oxycontin/codone a total synthetic, and Fentanyl, the partial synthetic developed as a possible anesthetic in the 60's for surgeries. It didn't work. What ever happened to the Hippocratic Oath beginning w/ First, cause no harm? Allowing suffering and pain to continue needlessly is harm. Criminals are going to continue to be criminals no matter what. ONLY certain ppl have addictive personalities. Not everyone does. That's like saying don't build casinos bcz everyone has a gambling problem. MANY ppl really do, yet they constantly ignore that and build them anyway! MOST ppl took the Drug of Choice after surgery and stopped w/ no problems of so called withdrawal at all after the 8-9 weeks or more of recovery and physical therapy. These are all highly controlled meds anyway. By current definitions of dependency a person who has high blood pressure or diabetes is, "addicted, " to their medications. Are they going to be hauled away as addicts, too? This entire fiasco is lunacy, madness and, simply cruel and inhumane. Dogs are not allowed to suffer as humans, children, vets, disabled, the elderly, and, the dying are. A Physician goes into the Art and Practice of Medicine to EASE SUFFERING, heal and cure. Doctors are only interested in how much money they'll get, how they LOOK, as in, their reputations, and the bottom lines. From Your Own Play Book, " You cannot run Medicine as a business bcz people are not cattle." One of your own mottos that Western Reserve used to teach and instill in their students as a high value. "University Hospitals (used to) gives everyone regardless of ability to pay the exact same high quality care. That patient who cannot pay may simply just be put in a Ward and not given a room, " the same graduate from WESTERN RESERVE Medical School who told me the prior phrase told me this one. (NOT CASE.) He was willing to sometimes treat for free. Polititians have gone and made that Mercy illegal. 😠 Polititians suck. Only acouple of them in DC ( Desperately Corrupt) actually attended Medical School and saw/see patients. Ben Carson, MD, and former Senator, Scott Jensen, MD. There maaay be another but Congress doesn't usually attract the best and brightest. UH needs to return to her roots of easing suffering and provide real care with real pain medicines that are proven to truly ease suffering at the proper dosages and proper lengths of time to be determined by the individual prescribing Physician, be they a Surgeon, Internist, etc. Not determined by some life in an Ivory Tower Group who never see actual suffering on a day to day basis in an ER. UH must take her rights back as a Hospital for the sake of her Owners, Patients AND her Physicians! The Gov't has stolen them!!!! First by telling you that Physicians could no longer be Internists and Endocrinologists, or Internists and Gastroenterologists, or Internists and Rheumatologists! You allowed this to happen bcz you guys did nothing to stop it, even though it was a completely idiotic thing to do by the Governing Boards. It began further compartmentalizing what is a highly complex biological System, the human body! It was taught by you that it is a single interactive, integrated system. What effects one part effects another! Now patients go from Physician to Physician, none of whom are given the time to communicate with each other about their patients. The so called role of Primary Care Physician is Laughable! They've no clue what's going on! They've no time! They may TRY to follow a patient or two, but if they have a Zebra in their practice? Poor Zebra! They're left behind or kicked out of the herd as, too complex. It's not the fault of the Primary either. It is the System that's been allowed to Coagulate around them! They're cluttered w/ too much Busy Work. Hospitals should be in the business of Protecting their Best and Brightest! Offering them the Highest benefits to Stay with Them! Second, the Gov't is demanding to play doctor. A role not in the Constitutions of Federal or State Legislatures, and, one they are not even remotely qualified for. Forcing Physicians to see a patient every 15-20 minutes is a form of insanity. This is simply not enough time to spend with any one patient. It is not time enough to take a comprehensive history, or even to listen to the poor patient fumble to try and describe something they've not been trained to explain! It is the Role of the Physician to ask the proper questions and Guide the patient into describing what's wrong. Physicians need time to physically examine patients. Check their glands, tongue, eyes and ears. Palpate them properly and firmly. It's no wonder Physicians are retiring as fast as they can. They can no longer take the pressure to produce a Product instead of a Result. Telling Physicians who spent their entire lives studying to be Physicians what medicines they should be prescribing is Ludicrous, as well. Niether the Gov't, nor insurance companies should make those determinations, even if they have a "doctor," on staff. Those ppl don't see these patients! Nor should a Team make decisions over another, well qualified Physician! How would you like it if someone came and told you what underwear you were going to put on everyday from now on? That is what it's like for one of you to suddenly be told what to do by an ignorant, raving bureaucrat. That's the level of madness that this insanity has reached, especially now with this Cov-Control. When you take your dog to the vet, you demand The highest quality care for it! Do you not? Why would you not want the highest quality care for your relative (wife, daughter, son, husband...) if, unbeknownst to you, they were suddenly in the ER? Wouldn't you want their personal physician to atleast see them, or, speak to the attending on the phone? Or that the ER Physician will have Mercy and give them pain medicine that will actually work? And not amputate a limb w/out trying to consult SOMEONE or Try to save it? (Metro Health is the Last level 1 Trauma Center in this entire area. Why is that??! Why don't you even have one level 1??! There aren't even any level Two Trauma Centers! Only One 1! All the rest are level 3!! So if your child cuts her finger off (God forbid) you MUST go to West 25th's ER! ) There is no aggregate data from double blind studies bcz there have never been double blind studies conducted on morphine and it's derivatives, "... No physician in their right mind would subject a control group to such a level of suffering... " Stand Up, UH! Take back your rights from the overbearing Gov't! Both State and Federal Gov't's must give you, a HOSPITAL, back your rights to both practice and teach real medicine, as you once did. They must stop editing the text books of so called, "false information," that doesn't fit the media's narrative, or, the ppl who now "own," the AMA. Be the Good Guys Once Again!! And while you're at it, plz, change the name of the School back to Western Reserve. PS, It's ER not ED (ED means something completely different and dysfunctional.) Your "Talking Groups" are incorrect. All that money you and SW paid for those, "studies" was a waste of time! The General Public still call them ER's!

I didn't think I was ever going to get the covid shot, because it was very difficult to figure out where to get the vaccine and when I did find a location there were never any appointments available. I finally found the King County website, which is easy to navigate and I was shocked to find that not only were appointments available but I could get an appointment in two days. I was very nervous about going to the Showare Center because I have physical limitations that make walking and standing difficult and I imagined this was going to be a very painful and miserable experience. Boy was I wrong. This program was extremely well thought out and very organized. There was constant proactive communication from the staff to keep people moving through every step in the process. They knew exactly what I needed to know and answered all of the questions I would have asked, had they not answered them first. Its as if they were reading my mind. It was clear that the process was designed for effiency and everyone at every station was very well trained, competent, cool and collected. There was no wait to get in or delays getting through the process. I was very pleasantly surprised and this almost never happens.

No front desk clerk, so wait time to sign in and check out took longer than usual. Health care staff from the back were managing the front desk when they could between patient care. We had a scheduled appointment for my son’s athletic physical and our appointment time, including wait time, was 75 minutes. Better than expected from previous experiences at same location.

Just had my first appointment at the Boca VA Outpatient Clinic. I had second thoughts about changing from the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center, but I will now make Boca Clinic my first choice for medical care. The clinic is professional run with a very cheerful administrative staff. It was so nice to be greeted by numerous staff members on arrival. The clinic was spotlessly clean, and every precaution was being taken for Covid prevention. I was first seen by a nurse (Alfredia) who welcome me as a new patient. She was so kind and professional, and I immediately felt relaxed as she took all my vitals. Her cheerful attitude was such nice bonus. After waiting a few minutes I was introduced to Dr. Collier who spent over 30 minutes going over my medical information and doing a physical exam. Dr. Collier was awesome. She had a wonderful bedside and professional manner. It was very easy to communicate with her. She answered all my questions and took an interest in my medical care. She assured me that if I have any question prior to my next appointment that I should call the clinic.

It only took about 15 minutes to do the APS Sports physical there. And for 20 bucks (after 5.00 dollar off coupon), you just can’t beat the price for the value. I have taken my son to get his sports physical here for the last 4 years.

We arrived at 6:46 and checked in on app saying we had arrived. It said there were 3 people ahead of us and then eventually showed that we were next. It never notified us that it was our turn and never said to go into Urgentcare. I told my sick daughter we just needed to be patient that we weren’t allowed to go in until we received notice from the app, due to Covid. Finally after waiting over an hour in the car,I risked breaking the rules to go in and inquire about our turn. After all - it was getting close to closing time. The receptionist was very nice but seemed a little frustrated with the app. She said I should have come in and signed in on the physical paper to let them know I had arrived. I have no problem with the receptionist, she was very helpful and a couple of the employees apologized for the wait. They got us in soon after that. My question is why did the app tell us to wait and refresh the wait list when it didn’t mean anything? It even had at column called “at clinic” that said “yes” because I had responded yes to the app when we arrived. The app should have clearly stated that I needed to “go into Urgentcare building and sign in” instead of leading me to believe that checking in on the app was sufficient. Thank you to the staff at Fairfield Urgentcare. I’m sure this app confusion is frustrating for you too.

Corrales Physical Exams

A annual physical exam (or annual well visit) is a routine check-up where a doctor or healthcare provider checks you for routine health issues and asks you basic questions about your health. During a physical exam, the doctor will most likely go over your medical history and ask you questions about the current state of your health. They'll also check vital signs like your heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature, as well as take a look at whether your skin appears healthy. You'll also get a head and neck exam, a lung exam (using a stethoscope), an abdominal exam, a neurological exam, and more. Women may get a breast and pelvic exam and men may get prostate, penis, testicular, and hernia exams.

Annual exams are important because they can help you find out about health issues early on so treatment can begin as soon as any problems are discovered. If you're overweight or you're at risk for diabetes, you'll most likely get a blood sugar test too. Everyone over the age of three should have a physical exam every year. At age 50, your doctor might start screening for colorectal cancer. At 40, women should begin getting regular mammogram screenings for breast cancer. Women ages 45 to 54 should get them yearly and women 55 and older should get them (at minimum) every two years.

More Details about Physical Exams

A physical examination is frequently done as part of a doctor's routine checkup. You can better prepare for your next medical appointment by learning more about what happens during a physical exam.

Physical examination

A physical examination is when your healthcare practitioner examines and studies your body to determine whether you have a physical health concern. Inspection, palpation, auscultation, and percussion are the four components of a physical examination, according to the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

Your doctor examines your body for concerns such as skin imperfections during the examination. According to the National Library of Medicine, palpation is the process of feeling your body with your fingers or hands, such as when a doctor feels for a tumor or mass.

Auscultation is a procedure in which your doctor listens to sounds, such as your heartbeat. Percussion entails making noises, such as tapping on various body parts. According to the National Library of Medicine, this is normally done to establish the size and consistency of your organs, as well as the presence or absence of fluids in specific locations.

The purpose of an annual physical exam

An annual physical exam, according to the National Library of Medicine, can help you detect and prevent health concerns you may not be aware of.

A yearly physical exam is used to check for diseases such as cancer and to see whether you are at risk for certain health issues such as diabetes. According to the National Library of Medicine, a yearly physical checkup allows you to stay up to date on vaccines and other preventative health treatments, as well as make good lifestyle choices that improve your overall health. Another advantage of getting an annual physical examination is that you can keep in constant contact with your doctor if you acquire an illness or chronic disease.

How to prepare for a physical examination

According to the National Library of Medicine, arriving prepared for your appointment can help you get the most out of your visit and avoid unnecessary follow-ups with your doctor.

First, go over your family's medical history and be ready to discuss any health conditions that run in your family, such as high blood pressure, cancer, or diabetes. According to the National Library of Medicine, your doctor may use this information to see if you're at risk for these same health issues.

The National Library of Medicine suggests that you check to see whether any general checkups or vaccines are needed. If you're not sure, call your doctor ahead of time so you can dress correctly or make extra arrangements if you need to go through specific tests.

Lastly, the NLM suggests writing down a list of issues and questions to mention during your appointment. For example, if you’ve been experiencing any new or different symptoms, write these down so your doctor can examine you for related health problems.

How a physical examination is performed

According to the National Library of Medicine, the manner in which your physical exam is conducted is mostly determined by your gender and age, due to changes in anatomy and health problems that affect different age groups.

Male examination

According to the National Library of Medicine, males between the ages of 18 and 39 have their height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) examined at every appointment. Males in this age bracket may be questioned about mental health issues such as depression, as well as their eating, exercise, and substance use habits. Blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease may all be checked.

According to the National Library of Medicine, men aged 40 to 64 receive the same services as men aged 18 to 39, as well as screenings for colorectal cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and osteoporosis. Men in their sixties and seventies may also be asked about their medications and whether they have recently fallen.

Female examination

At each checkup, females between the ages of 18 and 39 will have their height, weight, and BMI measured. According to the National Library of Medicine, females should have their blood pressure tested every one to two years, and cervical cancer screenings should begin at the age of 21. During their regular physical, females in this age bracket may also have diabetes and cholesterol screenings.

According to the National Library of Medicine, women between the ages of 40 and 64 receive all of the same services as younger women, as well as lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and osteoporosis screenings. Women over the age of 65 may be subjected to routine mammograms and may be asked about any medications they are taking.

Lab tests

Based on the findings of your physical exam, your doctor may prescribe lab tests to confirm or rule out one or more diseases. The NLM says that lab tests may be used as part of examinations for disorders like colorectal cancer and cervical cancer.

Before your appointment, call your doctor to find out if you'll be having lab tests and what they'll entail so you can make the required preparations.

Following up after a physical examination

If one of your screens or lab tests comes back positive or inconclusive, you may be contacted following your physical examination. In such cases, your doctor will contact you to discuss treatment options or to prescribe more testing and screening. Your doctor can tell you more about what to expect after your physical exam in terms of follow-up.
