I came in for a pregnancy test. The receptionist was very nice and calm and professional as well. The nurse was very friendly and helpful as well. She was training another nurse and did an excellent job. And the doctor was very straightforward but very nice and kind when congratulating me on my pregnancy

Ascension Saint Thomas Urgent Care, Donelson - 2412 Lebanon Pike
I don't think a thorough exam was done. No one even looked in my throat. The staff person never introduced themselves. I don't even know if it was a Dr, PA or nurse. With my symptoms and the fact that I work with children I don't know why I wasn't screened for covid or strep to rule those out.

Every single person, starting with the receptionist, was very nice. I am very pleased with my visit. In this day and time , it's hard to find good doctors and good staff. The doctor explained everything in good detail. My primary doctor is on vacation, and I would have delayed going to the doctor. As a patient, I often feel like I am not being heard. I am glad that I had a splendid experience here. Everyone was so patient and understanding. I am so impressed. I can truly tell they have a heart for patient care. I would love to say thank you again!

I went in for a B12 injection. The check-in process was very easy. I was there less than 30 minutes. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The nurse who gave me the shot was also very friendly, and I barely felt the injection. I highly recommend the Ascension Saint Thomas Urgent Care-Hermitage.

The nurse who took my vitals and information was hard to understand with her mask on. She wanted to be insistent that I get a Covid test or a flu test. I knew what my issue was and had to be adtiment that I did not require those tests. This was agitating.  The nurse practitioner examined me and gave me the medication that I needed.  The receptionist did a good job, however, I did not like having to put my credit card information on file. Thank you.

Recent Physical Exam Reviews (20)

I arrived late due to traffic, and was assured the staff would be calling. The gentleman that asked me to provide my systems was thorough and professional. The Covid/Flu test were negative, and the doctor followed up my symptoms. She was very professional and asked questions to narrow down my issues. She conducted overall physical check, and ask for urine test. Prescribed antibiotics, and I left with a positive experience!

Being new to this area. I had to update my medical card for my CDL. I was referred to AFC Urgent Medical care through a friend. I walked in and was greeted by a friendly/ professional staff member. After I finished filling out the required paperwork, I was to see the Doctor ( Very professional, friendly and personable, even though he was a Dallas Cowboy fan! )to complete my required physical. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND AFC URGENT CARE! IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! THANK YOU, R Middleton.

I brought my son in for a sports physical. The receptionist was friendly, the tech that assessed the vitals was friendly as well and knew what she was doing. Finally, the healthcare provider who performed the sports physical last name begin with an "O" I think, was friendly, professional, quick, and informative. I would recommend others to come visit, and I will definitely come back again in the future.

Facility very clean. Staff very friendly and no one sitting around doing nothing. Assistant got me in and got my vitals etc very efficiently. Then the PA came in and allowed me to give my symptoms. She asked a few questions for clarification and did a physical exam. Did an x-Ray. And, I was out in an hour with a diagnosis and a prescription. BTW, I am an advanced practice nurse so I could see things with a medical point of view and I have no concerns or complaints. I would like to see places like this concert to an optional cash model. Have a big menu board with all the prices posted if you want to pay cash. This might help to reduce costs.

Today was a tough day mentally and physically. The staff, nurses and doc made this visit so much easier on me and offered so much comfort. I am super impressed with my visit!!!

Dr. Cash is awesome - I'd definitely want to see her again. She is very professional, knowledgeable and personable. I appreciated the friendly staff as well. The only negative thing I would add is I don't like the iPad method of signing in - having to physically touch the same screen that countless others who are sick have touched is disgusting to me. I'm sure if you were to test for germs on that iPad you would find a shocking amount of germs/bacteria all over it.

- Verified patient on 11/25

The staff was very helpful, but we were required to wear masks even though there is no mask mandate in our county. We were coming in for a quick sports physical, none of us were sick, therefore we had nothing to spread. I’m thankful we got what we went there for, but I will avoid going in again because we should not have to be forced to wear a device that hinders breathing.

- Verified patient on 4/23

The first nurse who started my physical had a nasty attitude and complained under her breath about having to find the color blind test booklet while doing my physical. We had a slightly unpleasant talk about it and I asked for another nurse to finish my physical. She attempted to mold the disagreement around me not arriving with a mask on but wearing a mask was not the problem, her Jack Kevorkian temperament was. Her supervisor then finished my physical with no further issues. Entire staff with the exception of this one lady was pleasant and professional.

- Verified patient on 8/6

All A-OK re much appreciated Dr. Drumm. Think front desk staff should 1) tell patients who schedule an annual physical to show up in a fasted state rather than not saying a word in this regard during scheduling; 2) not ask “are you hydrated” when patient shows up for the physical, as if one knows the degree of water he or she has consumed prior to showing up and, again, without having said a word as to the importance of adequate hydration when scheduling the appointment. Think, too, that if patient has asked if showing up early for appointment is necessary and being told “no” due to paperwork being on file, your system email should not inform patient 30 minutes before the appointment that he should come 10 minutes early.

It is so much easier than physically going to the office and I love the staff at that office they are absolutely the best

- Verified patient on 5/19

Very nice folks. Extremely friendly. My only comment is the person who took my son's vitals used hand sanitizer on her hand to clean the pulse oximeter and the blood pressure cuff. Wipes were right there on the container. He was there for a sports physical, but what if he was asymptomatic COVID? That was the only negative. The rest was great.

- Verified patient on 6/21

I came in for a foot fracture on a weekend. Overall the clinic seemed clean with physical distancing protocols in place, the physician was very kind and encouraging, and other staff spent time to help me understand my new boot. Would return if I was in a pinch like that again!

Nashville 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.

    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 Nashville?

    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 Nashville area.
