South Center Medical Clinic, Primary Care Clinic - 15215 52nd Ave S
First, this: the office location was not what I expected, so I wasn't sure quite what I'd find inside.  Honestly, nothing bad about the location, but the exterior signage is a bit lacking. Inside, the front desk staff was friendly, efficient, very easy to check in. For the actual medical visit, Dr. Danh was great.  Seemed willing to spend time and listen to me, gave me a few recommendations to consider beyond the immediate concern that brought me to the clinic.  I can't say I've ever "enjoyed " a visit to a doctor's office or clinic, but this place was a nice surprise.  If I didn't already have a primary care provider, I'd definitely consider making this my go-to practice for medical care.

Recent Physical Exam Reviews (20)

Very quick check-in process, and very friendly and professional staff! Everyone is safely physically distanced, and if you’re receiving a COVID vaccine, definitely bring your completed paperwork with you, and proof of employment if you are a school employee. Overall great experience!

- Verified patient on 3/4

Great experience! Booking an appt on line was easy. Starting with a volunteer as you enter the parking area, there are volunteers every step of the way to ensure social distancing and ensure the process runs smoothly. Entire process took about 30 min. Must have I.D. There is no charge. Vaccination site is a short distance away from the parking garage; which is free. Umbrellas are thoughtfully provided as is physical assistance if needed. Volunteers were friendly, thoughtful and some of the most efficient people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Actual vaccination site is extremely clean and ran with the same efficiency. You may schedule the second part of the vaccine here even if you got the first part elsewhere; provide proof of vaccination either way. After trying to book an appt @ 4 other sites and running into dead ends (out of vaccine, never got vaccine, on the list of providers by mistake, etc) I was extremely thankful to start the process here and I highly recommend this location.

- Verified patient on 1/21

So easy to get a Covid test! We were surprised by the steady stream of clients coming in for a test but it was well managed. There was plenty of parking, required appointments meant a short line, and each staff person we engaged with was efficient and friendly. The environment felt very safe. Testing was done outside, everyone was socially distanced, staff had full PPE, and masks were required for all clients except when physically performing the test. Would definitely go there again.

- Verified patient on 9/1

Everyone was friendly and kind. They laughed at my terrible jokes. The medic was patient and kind and celebrated me doing the thing. I would want him to show up if I'm ever in trouble. Thank you for making a physically unpleasant experience, mentally and emotionally pleasant. Lane 3 at 1:20pm.

- Verified patient on 6/10

Everything about the physical experience was good. What really needs work is the web site. First it said there were no appointments available when I needed a test. It is a walk-up arrangement. The hours were in correct on the web site. Everything was in operation when I got there 15 minutes before it was scheduled to open. Thank goodness I questioned everything the web site was saying because of what I have witnessed by just driving by occasionally.

- Verified patient on 8/5

It was a Sunday. Grateful to have the help it needed. Receptionist was welcoming, efficient and kind. The physical clinic is very pleasant, attractive and sparkling clean. Waiting area well designed and comfortable. Lots of natural light. ARNP was very pleasant and thorough and solved my problem. Visit altogether was top notch. Thank you for being there

- Verified patient on 12/30

Everyone was so kind and friendly. Very helpful to let me and my friend get tested at the same time holding hands so that we could feel more comfortable. Really great staff with the people at the desk and the people physically doing the tests.

- Verified patient on 9/29

We are so grateful for this service. Everyone we interacted with was extremely friendly and professional. From the greeters directing traffic to the medical personnel that checked us in and physically tested us, we felt at ease in a situation that could have been very intimidating. I was so appreciative of the testers ability to articulate expectations and keep us calm/distracted during the swab. Thank you!

- Verified patient on 6/9

I was very impressed with how the Swedish community handled the steady and long stream of individuals coming in for vaccinations. While the lines were long, they moved along efficiently, and staff was there smiling and encouraging all along. If anyone had physical or mobility issues, they quickly helped them forward. It was a top rate job, with qualified staff on hand to provide a calming experience in what could have been otherwise. GREAT work!

- Verified patient on 1/27

The online process for making an appointment and providing necessary information was simple and fast. The on-site process for the test was fast and smooth. There was plenty of parking and we only had to wait a few minutes for our turn to get tested. People waiting to be tested all wore masks and maintained good physical distancing. The deep-nostril/sinus sampling process for this test was more painful, with lingering discomfort for some time, than the sampling methods used elsewhere in my previous two tests. Using the QR code I was provided for checking test results works nicely, though results are not yet in at this time (less than 36 hours post test).

- Verified patient on 12/7

The test and the testers were perfectly fine. It’s the horrific 10 minute walk plus another four minutes into the parking lot to get to the testing site A lot of us do not have a car or we have a physical handicap so getting to the site in the first place Is near impossible. The site itself and where it’s located is set up to only certain people who have a car and are able-bodied.

- Verified patient on 10/24

It was quick and easy check-in. My son had an appointment and I did not and was able to get a test as well. The person administering the test explained the process and potential physical feeling I may have. Very helpful!

- Verified patient on 9/3

Incredibly safe, efficient, and friendly experience. I was absolutely blown away by how Fred Hutch/SCCA handled the logistics of vaccinating as many people as possible while keeping them physically distant. The long hallways, curtain separated vaccination rooms, personal timers/cubicles were genius. Every staff member I spoke with was kind and friendly. I cannot say how lucky I feel to have both been vaccinated and to have done it here. I will recommend Fred Hutch/SCCA to anyone eligible for a vaccine.

- Verified patient on 3/5

Very easy and efficient. They text message you the links to all the information you need to provide in advance. Once you get there, you're directed to a lane, are greeted by an attendant who confirms your information, then are provided with the test materials to bring to the administrator all while in your car. The administrators are free the fire department and EMTs and do a great job explaining what will happen, how it feels and put you at ease. After the 20-30 second test, you're on your way with a tissue to help with the inevitable tearing (physical reaction) from the test.

- Verified patient on 7/17

I’ve been tested once before (SODO) shortly after the pandemic hit, and staff at that testing site also were excellent, but my experience today was exceptional; the woman who initially greeted me/took my information was kind and friendly, the woman who verified my information and gave me my vial was also kind and friendly, and the individual who physically tested me - his name is Michael - not only greeted me with kindness and consideration for the anxiety of being tested, he also thoroughly explained how my brain would react to the swab and gave me detailed instructions on how to remain calm so the fight or flight instinct wouldn’t be triggered. I followed his instructions and the swabbing was significantly less painful than my first experience. I actually left smiling! I have nothing but the deepest respect and gratitude for everyone working at both testing sites.

- Verified patient on 1/14

This is my 2nd time getting tested. The first time was physically uncomfortable but not at all painful. This time it was very painful. I got a nosebleed for the 2nd time in my life. The swab was taken too quickly and it still hurts hours later, even after a nap.

- Verified patient on 8/26

(1) Finding the right way to schedule was a little difficult. It could be made clearer how to register if you have symptoms. (2) Staff took excellent cleanliness precautions, but the Aurora drive-up facility needs work. Staff at the windows wore covering, which were black at the sleeves from touching the opening. Staff made sure they were interacting with public in a very clean way, but the physical facility should be made more clinically-clean. (3) APPLAUSE for the staff. They are reassuring, efficient experts at the process. (4) APPLAUSE for the lab - they returned results in 17 hours! (5) EXCELLENT that I could make an appointment for testing on the same day I was experiencing symptoms!

- Verified patient on 1/17

For such a serious, physically unpleasant test, what an excellent experience! No waiting, unbelievably friendly and informative staff, and easy results process. I got a negative test, thank goodness — but am relieved to know this place is here for me if I or someone I know need a test in future.

- Verified patient on 6/25

I was very nervous for my first test. Upon arrival, we were ushered right in and greeted with kindness. All staff kept their distance with professionalism. Information was received and we were moved to the EMTs, who were extremely understanding of the nerves. They explained the process patiently, showed the test tool, and described what to physically expect. The test went quickly and was exactly what was described. Thank you to all those at the Aurora Test Site! You were stellar.

- Verified patient on 7/29

I had an excellent experience. I mean, the testing procedure itself was certainly less than excellent in terms of the physical sensation, but the stellar people I encountered during my visit mitigated the necessary discomfort. Nothing but kindness and good energy. Thanks!

Seattle 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.

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

    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 Seattle area.
