Annual Physical Q&A
What is an annual physical?
An annually physical provides a whole-body checkup for you every year to prevent sickness and disease. Unlike sick visits, you should plan your yearly exam as a routine visit.
The exam allows Dr. Khan to gather your medical information and determine the condition of your overall health. The exam also allows you the opportunity to talk about any concerns you might have or ask questions.
If you haven’t had an annual physical before, schedule an appointment. Dr. Khan can get you started on improving your health and staying on track to prevent any issues in the future.
Why do I need an annual physical?
An annual physical serves as one of the most important ways to offer preventive health care for your body.
When you visit Four Peaks Internal Medicine for your exam, Dr. Khan uses tests and screenings to help identify any signs of emerging health issues, such as hypertension, high cholesterol, and even prediabetes.
As he makes a record of your results, he can monitor any changes as you continue your routine annual visits. If he detects any signs of concern, he can begin treatment to get you well and to help you maintain wellness.
What can I expect at my annual physical?
When you schedule your annual physical appointment at Phoenix Internal Medicine Associates, a medical professional from the team checks your:
- Height and weight
- Blood pressure
- Internal organs
Dr. Khan also checks for any signs of disease progression and evaluates the effectiveness of any current treatments you might be on.
Depending on your age, he might perform certain tests that include a urine sample and blood work. To check your mental wellness, your visit can also include a conversation about your sleep patterns, stress levels, and the health of your relationships.
How often should I have an annual physical?
Your annual exam should happen once a year. Changes that occur in between your yearly appointments can be identified at your exam from one year to the next.
In some cases, you might not notice any changes, such as high blood pressure. That’s why you want to come in once a year and have your vital signs checked, plus get any necessary screenings.
