Physical Examination Take control of your health

Physical Exam
Comprehensive physical examination, also simply known as a “physical”, is a process in which the physician examines various organ systems and parts of the patient’s body. “Physical” is the cornerstone of preventive medicine. It is far better to prevent disease than to treat it, and better to treat it early before it becomes worse. Screening patients at regular intervals help physicians to detect disease before the presence of symptoms and create a good doctor-patient relationship. Most health plans understand the importance of a “physical” and will offer it to its members at different intervals. However, if a medical plan offers an annual physical, one should take advantage of it.

Our Comprehensive Exams are extensive but are individualized according to age, gender, and specific needs. We offer exams for those 18 and older.
