Physicals Q & A

What are physicals?

Physicals are medical exams that evaluate your overall health. They allow your primary care provider to detect potential medical issues before they cause life-altering complications. ProHealth Primary Care specializes in primary care services for adults of all ages. The skilled team treats any concerns you might face to maximize your well-being.

What do annual physicals include?

Annual physicals at ProHealth Primary Care often consist of the following:


Your provider weighs you and determines your body mass index (BMI) to assess your chronic disease risk factors.

Vital signs check

A vital signs check involves evaluating your pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and other vital signs. 

Medical history review

Your primary care provider reviews your medical history, including your medications, symptoms, past diagnoses, lifestyle habits, and more. 

Medical exam

During a physical exam, your specialist evaluates your vision, hearing, eyes, throat, heart, heartbeat, reflexes, and breathing. They offer prostate exams to men and pelvic exams and Pap tests to women. 

Diagnostic testing

Depending on your health and risk factors, you may be a candidate for blood work, urine testing, heart function tests, lung function testing, imaging procedures, a biopsy, or other diagnostic tests. ProHealth Primary Care also offers mental health evaluations. 

Diagnostic testing can screen for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer, and more. 

Your provider can also detect dementia, depression, anxiety, and other common mental health concerns. 

Treatment recommendations

If you need treatment for a health problem, the ProHealth Primary Care experts are here to help.
