Excel Urgent Care , Missouri City - 6840 Hwy 6
It was a mixed bag, I made an appointment for 9:30 arrived at 9:10 and the receptionist could not find my appointment at first, finally she found it loaded it, but she did not update my personal information which resulted in my prescriptions to be sent to Walgreens with the wrong information. It was late in the evening when I finally got everything straight at Walgreens and with your systems and I received my Prescriptions. Given the time I had to wait, I do not see the advantage of setting an appointment as it was well after 10:15 before I was called back and after 11:00 before the Dr arrived. I hope this will be smoother the next time I visit. Bernard Simmons

Walked into clinic this morning, receptionist was both helpful and nice. Tech who took my vitals and tested me for step, flu and Covid was very pleasant and explained each swab, which I appreciated. The NP was also very helpful and friendly, she explained everything to me as she examined me. She informed me that I tested positive for Covid, and what kind of symptoms I may have, she also talked to me about the medication she was going to prescribe to me. My apologies for not remembering everyone’s name that helped me and my husband out today. My entire experience was excellent, and if I lived here, I’d definitely recommend them to everyone I knew, but if I’m here visiting again and need to be seen, I will definitely come back. Thanks

    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.

During your next appointment, your doctor can provide you more information about the lab tests that may be recommended for you.

  • 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.

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.

I went in for a pre employment physical evaluation and a drug screening, went pretty well, except for the urine drug test. I have never done any drugs in my life, but this thing made it look like I do. it came back positive for opioids and morphine, a substance that naturally occurs in poppy seeds, which I ate on two “everything bagels” for lunch the previous day. Poppy seeds have enough codeine and morphine that naturally are in them that it triggered this false positive. I am just disappointed that the test can’t differentiate from a person who naturally consumes it through food, or malicious illegal use of a substance. I can’t believe that an everything bagel could be the cause of a bump in the road for me getting a job. Now I have to wait 3 to 5 days for an “accurate” lab test to see if it was naturally consumed through food, or ingested some other way, in which I have no idea how.

Despite the COVID precautions, the staff was friendly, courteous, helpful...the doctor was amazing. I love the way she describe the physical procedures to my son. She was very through as if he were her general practice patient. She was kind and when she was done she told hime some safety tips to remember during the season.At the end of the visit, she asked for questions again, wished him a safe and fun season, then told us should we loose the paperwork, they would have a copy on file. Despite the masks, you could tell everyone was smiling and happy to help us. While this is urgent care, the warm feeling of love and peaceful atmosphere that said "How can we help you" definitely made us want to go back.

We decided to come here due to PrimaCare being closed on Tuesdays and my baby girl needed to be seen…we called before making the 30mins drive and was pleased to know that they took walk-ins…upon arrival, we were told that there was an hour wait but I didn’t mind at all…paperwork was sent via text (link provided in text) which was a breeze to fill out versus a physical application…the initial hour wait was actually 30mins…the nurses and Dr. Anjenette (sorry if I misspelled your name) are AMAZING!!! Extremely friendly, courteous, and you can tell that they love working with kiddos…I will DEFINITELY be back if baby girl ever needs to be seen…no more PrimaCare for us :-)

I had an appointment at 12:40. I arrived 2 minutes late because the address takes you to suite 400, and there are no signs which tell people suite 200 is around back of building. Therefore, I sat in my car for 10 minutes only to find I could not go through building. As I sat in front (which I normally don’t mind because I understand triage) 3 people were seen before me. One with sciatic pain, well, ok. One was a HS physical, um wrong and the other I don’t know about. Other than having to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes, I would highly recommend, the care was amazing!

- Verified patient on 3/19

I was very impressed how the doctor & nurses responded. They took care of me from the car: did the assessment, history, physical and treatment. They were all very concerned about me & acknowledged/abided by the PPE/Covid precautions. Someone called me 3 days after the visit to give me results of my COVID-19 test, as well as, they had taken a chest x-ray: had it reviewed by the radiologist remotely & had results within minutes. I was very impressed with this company & I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again! 3 words can describe them: Awesome, awesome, awesome!

I absolutely love coming to this place. I've had terrible experiences in visiting doctors, which has caused me to go into panic mode every time I get near them and avoid going overall. However, I leave this place feeling much better both physically and mentally due to how well and organized the clinic is. Communication is superb, wait times are minimal, and I love that scheduling is so easy when doing online (as well as filling out paperwork). Lastly, the staff is very friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. This is what eases my anxiety at every visit I've made.

Great service. Wife could not go down stairs due to her physical condition the house call was the answer. To have a physician like Dr Ybarra show up 20 min. before scheduled time was good. To have a radiologist bring his equipment up one story with no elevator---how good is that???& have Hecktor for blood sample in our room.All this & never had to leave the room..One drawback, I would have liked to see all the billing done on 1 invoice for insurance--do you know every invoice I have to fill out a form. Lets try all-in-on.

I only needed a physical to submit to my college for the fall semester. The staff rushed through reading the requirements for taking a tuberculosis test. I did not have any symptoms but the staff required me to take it. I do want my results on 7/2/***. I asked the test administrator about this and she stated the doctor would not see me without the test. I did take the skin test but I went to a different care provider not in the Primacare system and that doctor completed my physical which I submitted to my university.

Very kind and friendly. I deal with mental health issues and it was really nice to be treated like a human adult and not a kid, or like someone had to walk on eggshells for. Was very insightful, gave me more resources if I needed help. Wait time went over by 10 minutes (appt at 130, got seen at 140), but in total it was only a 30 minute appointment (ended at 2) Its also cheaper to go through IUC online than it is at the physical locations ($60 online or $110 in person!)

This is my third time going, everything was excellent, except that they never sent my prescription to the pharmacy. I called the clinic twice to advise them but the pharmacy never received it. So after waiting two hours at the pharmacy, I just decided to drive back to the clinic before they closed and physically picked up the prescription and took it myself. That was the major inconvenience I had this time. Hope next time I go, I don’t have this issue.. Thank You,

Took my son in today as a walk in for a sport physical around 4:30pm but had to come back at 8:15pm. All was good with to staff and doctor. The only thing I would have to say is that although the waiting area and put rooms looked nice and clean. I kept seeing little net flies around my son even killed 2 of them around him. Maybe the trash isn't taken out every day and that's causing the flies...

This was a great experience to get a well check. I didn’t have to drive anywhere and I waited on my comfy patio in the cool morning. I really love the idea of being able to visit virtually unless there was a need for physical contact. This was a great experience! The check in process was very easy. I was trying to book an appointment with my physician and I learned of the virtual opportunity.

Everything was great except for the little chubby girl that took the initial blood pressure. I think I have the white coat thing because I always have to take 2 or 3 readings when I go for the cdl physical. All I did was ask her a question and she got very upset. The lady at the check in and the doctor were very nice.

Texas 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.
