Physical Exam Q & A

What is a physical exam?

A physical exam is a routine examination used to assess your overall health. Dr. Saad is a board-certified internal medicine physician who provides care for patients 14 years and older. In addition to your annual physical exam, Dr. Saad also offers school and sports physical exams, as well as follow-up medical care as needed.

What can I expect during a physical exam?

Dr. Saad provides comprehensive physical examinations. His treatment goes beyond diagnosing and treating ailments. He wants you to live your best life, so he focuses on preventive care, providing you with the education and resources you need for a healthy, long life.

During your examination, Dr. Saad reviews your medical and family history, as well as your medication and supplement use. He also assesses your overall health by:

  • Checking your body mass index
  • Measuring your heart rate and blood pressure
  • Listening to your heart and lungs
  • Palpating internal organs
  • Checking reflexes
  • Looking at your ears and eyes

Once your evaluation is complete, Dr. Saad reviews his findings with you and provides suggestions on how to improve or maintain good health. He may also update your vaccinations to protect you from contagious diseases.

If you have a chronic health condition, such as diabetes or hypertension, Dr. Saad provides specific management for your chronic condition and may recommend regular follow-ups so he can monitor your health a bit more closely.

If you’re coming in for a sport or school physical, Dr. Saad adds any special test or examination the physical requires and completes the required paperwork.

What if I need a special test?

For your convenience, Dr. Saad’s medical office has an in-house lab and can conduct blood and urine tests at the office. If you need a special test not offered at the office, such as a mammogram or colon cancer screen, Dr. Saad can refer you to the most appropriate specialist but continues to act as your primary point of contact once he receives those test results.

Physical exams are an important part of managing your general health and wellness. To schedule your physical exam with a physician who focuses on helping you live the healthiest life, call the office today, or book an appointment online.
