The reason I didnt give them a 5 is because the guy Kevin at front desk needs to learn to be friendly. Dont work at front desk if you do not want to deal with people and be friendly. He was very rude. The rest of the employees at this center are real friendly and helpful.

Recent Physical Exam Reviews (20)

I made my appointment for 12:45. Checked in at 12:37 and because I said I had a cough, I was asked to wait in my car while 3 others in the waiting room were physically coughing. It was 95 outside but I waited in my car like I was asked to for 1 1/2 hours. I was finally called back to a room at 2:15. The staff was nice but if the wait is going to be that long, they should at least ask you if you want to wait. There is really no point in making an appointment if they take walk ins before you. I’ve been here 3 times and this was by far the longest visit.

I had no issues with the Virtual Visit whatsoever, Dr. Melissa K. was very kind and helpful and I appreciate her and her time! I know with the times we are in with COVID on the rise again and everything, but I guess you could say I'm old fashioned in that I would have much preferred a physical visit which is why I rated wait time as 3 stars. It is what it is I suppose! As far as bedside manner, I wasn't quite sure how to rate 'virtual' bedside manner..

- Verified patient on 8/29

The PA, Angie King, was excellent. Her diagnosis and assessment on Sunday afternoon saved me literally days of terrible symptoms, and unnecessary distress, and her medication prescriptions were exactly right and they worked immediately to end the severe physical regression. I am so thankful for her conscientious and professional care, so I could get back to feeling much better immediately and return to my own mental health care practice.

The 3 Kim’s are amazing! Took 2 kiddos for well child check/sports physical. They were so efficient and bed size manner was exceptional. Everyone made all of us feel valued. Everyone spoke to my kids like they were people. They listened and asked them questions. I am so grateful that they are partnering with me to teach my children how to be advocate for their health care!

- Verified patient on 8/3

We had a great experience, I just wouldn't recommend them to anyone because they wouldn't charge my son's sport physical to his insurance and I also asked the price of a self pay visit and it was astronomical compared to other urgent care facilities that offer the same services.

- Verified patient on 1/21

The doctor and staff were great today, despite it being the end of the day and I know they were tired with all the Covid-19 testing. They made us feel special and did a through physical exam of my son for his sports physical, didn’t cut any corners.

The PA and nurses were amazingly nice and caring. They explained everything before doing it. The PA took the time to really help me and explained everything and made sure I wasn’t hurt worse then what you could physically see.

Oklahoma 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.
