Annual Physicals Q & A

What is an annual physical?

An annual physical is a routine exam to check your overall health. At Indus Healthcare, your provider does a thorough exam. You’re screened for a variety of health problems.

Your annual physical can include immunizations, blood tests, and cancer screenings. Your provider might also ask you about your lifestyle, activity levels, and mental health. This information helps your provider plan your future care.

During your annual physical, Indus Healthcare patients are welcome to ask questions. Your provider can help you better understand your health needs. An annual physical is an ideal time to discuss medical concerns, family planning, and health goals.

Who needs an annual physical?

Experts recommend that both adults and children receive yearly physical exams. Annual physicals are especially important for children and teenagers. Your child's doctor relies on yearly exams to measure their growth and development.

Exams are also essential for people over 50. As you age, health problems can appear without warning. But annual physicals help your Indus Healthcare provider diagnose medical concerns early. The sooner you receive a diagnosis, the sooner you can start treatment.

What happens during an annual physical?

Each physical exam at Indus Healthcare is tailored to meet your needs. During your exam, your provider can:

  • Take your temperature
  • Listen to your heart and lungs
  • Check your height and weight
  • Measure your blood pressure and pulse
  • Review your immunization history
  • Examine your eyes, ears, nose, and throat

Depending on your medical history, your provider can examine your abdomen and pelvis and check your skin, nails, and reflexes.

In some cases, your provider will examine your breasts, genitals, and prostate. These exams help your provider diagnose STDs, fertility problems, and certain cancers.

What other routine health care do I need?

After your exam, your provider discusses any potential health concerns. If your provider notices a potential health problem, he or she can order lab or imaging tests. These tests will help confirm their diagnosis.

Once your provider has made a diagnosis, they determine what kind of care you need. If you need medication or surgery, your provider makes the necessary arrangements. The office staff also schedules a follow-up appointment.

No matter what your health needs, the Indus Healthcare team can help. They deliver the care you need to feel better.
