Annual Physicals Q & A

What is an annual physical?

Your annual physical is a time to check in with Ms. Omoregbee at Healing Vessels Medical Associates LLC and receive the screening and health services you need. While most physical exams share some similarities, your annual physical isn’t a one-size-fits-all experience.

As you grow older and move through the phases of your life, your needs shift and change. The annual physical you have at 25 is much different from the visit you have at 45. Your life experiences also shape the components of these important exams.

What happens during an annual physical exam?

A significant portion of your exam is spent talking with Ms. Omoregbee about your health and any changes you’ve noticed since your last visit. This information lets Ms. Omoregbee know if you need more in-depth health screenings. She also discusses the screening appropriate for your age, sex, and overall health.

Many men and women believe that having a full battery of health tests is essential to staying healthy. In reality, however, many screenings are not necessary in the absence of symptoms or signs. Some tests have a higher rate of false positives, which can lead to additional testing that carries risks of serious side effects.

Your exam will include a routine gathering of your vital signs and basic health data, like your height, weight, and blood pressure. From that point forward, Ms. Omoregbee advises screening on an individual basis, according to your specific set of needs.

What can I do to prepare for my annual physical?

It’s always a good idea to make a written list of any questions or concerns you have. This can help ensure you don’t forget about anything important during your visit. It’s also important to come prepared with a list of any medications and supplements you take.

Finding a provider you’re comfortable with is perhaps the most essential thing you can do to get the most out of your annual exams. The ability to speak openly about your health, habits, and concerns is critical. Ms. Omoregbee offers a wealth of experience in the field of health care, and she has your comfort as her top priority.
