Physical Exams Q & A

What are physical exams?

Physical exams are regular appointments you make with your primary care provider. You may be familiar with annual exams, a type of physical that you get once a year if your physician recommends them to you. 

You can also get a physical exam on your own accord or for other necessary purposes, like clearing you for employment or participation in sports. 

Dr. Shabnam provides detailed physical exams with age-specific tests and procedures. The exams are an excellent opportunity for you to check in with yourself and get personalized wellness advice from your physician.

When you first come in for a physical exam, your provider reviews your medical history and takes basic information like your measurements and vital signs. 

During the exam, your provider checks various health characteristics and organs. This includes your sinuses, your balance and gait, your abdominal organs, and your eyesight. They might also recommend additional services based on your needs, such as:

  • Lab testing
