Physical Exams Q&A

What is a physical exam?

A regular physical exam with Wagon Healthcare allows a doctor to keep a watchful eye on your health, year after year, ensuring you receive guidance and education needed to lead a long, healthy life.

A physical exam is just that — a full evaluation of your physical health — where a health care provider evaluates your:

  • Musculoskeletal structure
  • Cognitive function
  • Organs
  • Eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Respiratory system

In addition to your physical health, your doctor takes a broad approach to health care that considers your genetics, lifestyle, environment, and preferences. They also assess your mental health, medical history, and health goals.

Your overall health and well-being are influenced by myriad factors, and your doctor looks at the entire picture. They can make suggestions along the way to improve your quality of life.

Why do I need a physical exam?

An annual physical exam is the first line of defense in safeguarding your health. Through regular visits, your doctor monitors your health from year to year, spotting any trends that require further investigation. Wagon Healthcare offers physical exams for adults of all ages.

In addition to being an important wellness check-in, physical exams may be necessary for employment, school records, or for children to play certain sports.

Regardless of the type of exam you receive, your primary care specialist at Wagon Healthcare works with you to obtain the necessary information and clearance.

What happens during a physical exam?

Most comprehensive physicals include the same basic information, which your primary care specialist gathers through:

  • Recording your vital signs
  • Evaluating your body weight
  • Assessing musculoskeletal health
  • Testing your motor skills and reflexes
  • Reviewing previous injuries
  • Evaluating circulatory and respiratory systems

Wagon Healthcare staff can complete physical exams virtually as needed. They also make house calls for added convenience, saving you time and money without exposure to sick patients. Your primary care doctor tailors each physical exam to meet your specific needs.
