Physical Exam FAQs

  • What is a physical exam?

    A physical exam is a procedure in which your doctor examines your body to see whether you have any health problems.

  • What happens at a physical for a woman?

    A doctor will review a woman's medical history and perform the recommended screenings for her age group during a physical exam. According to the National Library of Medicine, she may also have her blood pressure and cholesterol levels examined, as well as have a conversation with her doctor about any new or existing health concerns.

  • Why are physical exams important?

    Physical exams are crucial, according to the National Library of Medicine, since they can uncover health concerns that you may be unaware of and help you minimize your chance of developing future health problems such as osteoporosis or diabetes.

  • How long do exams take?

    According to the National Library of Medicine, the length of time it takes for your doctor to do a physical exam is largely determined by the type and quantity of procedures and screenings that will be performed during your consultation. So that you can make the necessary arrangements, ask your doctor how long the exam will take.

  • What are common lab tests that can be ordered during a physical exam?

    During a physical exam, your doctor may prescribe a Pap test, a blood glucose test for diabetes, a cholesterol test, a complete blood count, and a thyroid-stimulating hormone test, according to the National Library of Medicine. During your next appointment, your doctor can provide you more information about the lab tests that may be recommended for you.

  • What vital signs are taken during a physical?

    According to the National Library of Medicine, vital signs are normally measured during an annual doctor visit because they alter with age, weight, activity level, and overall health. Blood pressure, temperature, pulse, and breathing rate are examples of vital indicators.

  • What questions should you ask your doctor during a physical?

    You can learn more about your health and the activities you can take to address or avoid specific health problems by asking questions during your physical checkup. According to the National Library of Medicine, you should bring a list of questions and concerns about your health to your appointment, such as new symptoms you're experiencing and screens and tests you should undergo based on your age, gender, and family history.

  • Where can I find and book a physical exam in Ohio?

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!

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.

Earlier a staff member in another department walked me to where the door is for the lab work. She’s working in the front office on the ground floor with physical therapy. Absolutely wonderful, though I don’t remember her name. So grateful she showed me where it was located, due to the total lack of signs for navigation to the lab! The lab technician and the gatekeepers were all super, but the lab technician/nurse was FABULOUS! Energetic and skilled at her job. Excellent experience! Even though a few people were in the waiting room, we all seemed to come at once, there was little wait time.

Has been great service each time I have been there. I know Covid has requirements, but there were as many as 12 to 14 people in the waiting room with only 6 chairs available. There were several at least 8 women & children, & 4 elderly people in the waiting room. Please add add'l chairs for this type of condition. If you have that many people (with mask) you should be able to have enough chairs, especially for women & children, I'm a 74 yr old man & don't mind standing, since I am physically able to.

My experience was quick clean friendly and efficient. I enjoy going to see my doctor once a year for my annual physical I have been lucky to only need him once a year. The girls in the office are always friendly my nurse is always friendly and attentive and I always get all my questions asked and answered. This visit I was sent to get blood drawn 3 tubes my phlebotomist was friendly attentive and the experience was virtually pain-free. I thank you all for a wonderful experience.

From the emergency room who I feel saved my life to the nursing department dietary department housekeeping physical therapy occupational therapy they were all really great and helped me towards my goal of going home and I do believe your dietary system and how you do it it’s the best ever to be able to call down to the kitchen and order what you want to eat off the menu really makes a difference especially when you’re not feeling well thanks so much to all

We came in for a sports physical for our 7 yo son and it could not have gone better. From the sweet woman at the front desk being so welcoming and answering our questions, to Christi the MA taking his vitals and checking his eyes, to the PA James, it was a great visit from start to finish. We will definitely be back here.

- Verified patient on 7/10

This was a very good experience. My only complaint was that I wanted to schedule an appointment online & the app would only allow me to schedule Wednesdays & Saturdays. My physical was today (Monday) & I wanted the associated blood draw today also. So I waited in line; fortunately not many people were there this morning unlike my last appointment day.

I had my Physical with Dr. Robert Cirino and it went very well. He’s the very best. New doctor’s and interns should shadow this man and your patient surveys and your hospital reviews would skyrocket with glowing results. We sure need more physicians like Dr. Cirino!

Ohio Physical Exams

As part of a doctor's routine checkup, a physical examination is usually performed. Learn more about what happens during a physical exam to better prepare for your next medical appointment.

Physical examination

A physical examination is when a healthcare professional examines and studies your body to see if you have a physical health problem. The four components of a physical examination, according to the National Library of Medicine, are inspection, palpation, auscultation, and percussion (NLM).

During the examination, your doctor looks over your body for any issues, such as skin flaws. Palpation is the technique of feeling your body with your fingers or hands, such as when a doctor feels for a tumor or mass, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Auscultation is a method of listening to sounds, such as your heartbeat, by your doctor. Making noises, such as tapping on various body parts, is referred to as percussion. This is usually done to determine the size and consistency of your organs, as well as the presence or absence of fluids in specific places, according to the National Library of Medicine.

The purpose of an annual physical exam

According to the National Library of Medicine, an annual physical exam can help you discover and avoid health problems you may not be aware of.

An annual physical exam is used to screen for diseases like cancer and to see whether you're at risk for certain health problems like diabetes. A yearly physical checkup, according to the National Library of Medicine, helps you to stay current on vaccines and other preventative health treatments, as well as make smart lifestyle choices that benefit your general health. Another benefit of having a yearly physical examination is that you can communicate with your doctor at any time if you develop an illness or chronic disease.

How to prepare for a physical examination

According to the National Library of Medicine, being prepared for your appointment will help you make the most of your time with your doctor and avoid unnecessary follow-ups.

First, review your family's medical history and be prepared to discuss any inherited health concerns, such as high blood pressure, cancer, or diabetes. Your doctor may use this information to assess if you're at risk for these same health problems, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Check with the National Library of Medicine to discover if any general exams or immunizations are required. If you're not sure, call your doctor ahead of time to make sure you're dressed appropriately or to make special arrangements if you need to undergo specialized tests.

Finally, the National Library of Medicine recommends making a list of issues and questions to bring up at your meeting. If you've been suffering any new or different symptoms, for example, write them down so your doctor can evaluate you for any linked health issues.

How a physical examination is performed

The manner in which your physical exam is conducted is primarily governed by your gender and age, according to the National Library of Medicine, due to differences in anatomy and health problems that impact different age groups.

Male examination

Males between the ages of 18 and 39 have their height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) measured at every consultation, according to the National Library of Medicine. Males in this age group may be asked about mental health issues including depression, as well as their food, exercise, and substance use habits. It is possible to assess your blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease.

Males aged 40 to 64 receive the same services as men aged 18 to 39, including colorectal cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and osteoporosis screenings, according to the National Library of Medicine. Men in their sixties and seventies may also be questioned about their medications and whether or not they have fallen recently.

Female examination

Females between the ages of 18 and 39 will have their height, weight, and BMI checked at each visit. Females should have their blood pressure checked every one to two years, according to the National Library of Medicine, and cervical cancer screenings should begin at the age of 21. Females in this age group may get diabetes and cholesterol screenings as part of their routine medical examination.

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

Lab tests

Your doctor may order lab tests to confirm or rule out one or more disorders based on the results of your physical exam. Lab tests may be utilized as part of evaluations for illnesses such as colorectal cancer and cervical cancer, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Call your doctor ahead of time to find out if you'll be getting blood tests and what they'll entail so you can make the necessary arrangements.

Following up after a physical examination

Following your physical examination, you may be called if one of your screens or lab tests comes back positive or inconclusive. Your doctor will contact you in such circumstances to discuss treatment choices or to recommend additional tests and screening. Your doctor can tell you more about what to expect in terms of follow-up after your physical exam.
