Physicals & Check-Ups
Protecting Your Health
When it comes to taking care of your health, it’s important to keep up with routine medical appointments so you can keep track of your physicals. This is especially important for those that are still in school, participating in sports, or have a job that requires a physical examination certificate, and more. Whatever the reason may be, our experts will work quickly and effectively with you to maximize your convenience by shortening your wait time with our online check-in options and convenient on-site laboratory.
How Often Should I Get A Physical?
It is recommended that you have a professional physical examination at least once a year. Even if you are feeling healthy, it is important to determine whether or not you are at risk for certain illnesses.

Why Should I Get a Physical or Screening?
We highly encourage all of our patients to get screenings and partake in a check-up or a physical for better overall health and to prevent common diseases from taking hold. We work collaboratively alongside a practice manager, chronic healthcare coach, and a medical assistant to provide you with early detection of signs that may interfere with your health in the future.
Physicals and check-ups will involve various assessments and screenings based on your unique case. Appointment times will also depend on your situation, we will be sure to check for any visible symptoms that warrant treatment.
Generally, our physicals will check the following:
- Muscle strength
