What are physicals?

Physicals at Complete Rural Medicine are medical examinations in which your family medicine specialist evaluates your health and well-being.

The experts at Complete Rural Medicine offer all types of physicals.

What should I bring with me to my physical?

What should I expect during physicals?

During physicals at Complete Rural Medicine, friendly staff members greet you and provide the following:

Medical history review

During a medical history review, your Complete Rural Medicine provider asks about possible symptoms and your medication regimen, lifestyle habits, medical history, and family history of diseases. 

Vital signs check

Your Complete Rural Medicine specialist checks your temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs.

Physical exam

During a medical exam, your specialist evaluates your reflexes, abdomen, heartbeat, breathing, eyes, ears, throat, and more. They offer pelvic exams and Pap tests for women and prostate exams for men, as well as vision and hearing screenings. 

Diagnostics

When needed, your Complete Rural Medicine provider orders tissue swabs, urine testing, blood tests, heart-function testing, allergy or asthma tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures. 

Treatment

If you need treatment for an illness, injury, or disease, your Complete Rural Medicine provider can help. They tailor a treatment that improves your physical, mental, and overall health. They also offer immunizations you might need as a condition of passing required physicals. 

How often do I need physicals?

You likely need a physical once yearly. Unless you require one more than once a year for your job, school, or sports, annual physicals are often sufficient. You might only need DOT physicals every two years.
