Annual Physicals Q & A

What is an annual physical?

To monitor your health regularly, the team at AFM Healthcare recommends that you schedule a routine checkup every year. An annual physical allows your doctor to track your concerns, needs, and overall wellness as you grow older. 

Your visit includes routine examinations of your vital signs. It may also include blood tests and immunizations. 

AFM Healthcare tailors your annual physical to your age and specific health needs to provide you with the highest level of care.

Why should I get an annual physical?

You should have an annual physical at every age for the accurate monitoring and proper maintenance of your health. Your exam looks different from each phase of life because of the shifts and changes in your body as you grow older.

When you’re young, your doctor measures your growth and development. In adulthood, your health needs change, so you need different types of testing.

Annual physicals also help the AFM Healthcare team monitor any health concerns that might need medical attention. Diagnosing an illness early allows you to get treatment sooner, which gives your body a stronger chance to fight it.

How do I prepare for my annual physical?

Before you come in for your appointment, make sure you have a list of any questions you need to ask your doctor. Your annual physical allows you to open up about your habits, concerns, and any changes you’ve noticed in your body since your last visit. 

Be sure to provide a written list of all of your medications and family medical history as well. The experts at AFM Healthcare can give you the most thorough, comprehensive exam when you provide as much information as possible.

What will I experience at my annual physical?

Your annual exam provides a health screening appropriate for your age. Your doctor routinely checks your:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Lungs
  • Reflexes 
  • Temperature
  • Ears, nose, and throat
  • Abdomen

Your provider records your results and keeps them on file to compare with future readings so they can note year-to-year changes.

Your exam might lead to a request for more in-depth screenings if you show signs or symptoms of health issues that call for further testing.
