Wellness Exams Q & A

What are wellness exams?

Wellness exams are a type of preventive care service. The goal of a wellness exam is to check on your overall health and wellness and perform immunizations, as well as monitor any chronic conditions that you may have. Dr. Hussaini wants to be up-to-date on all patients’ health and wellness concerns, and she will give all the time you need to address whatever is on your mind.

The Doc’s Here offers numerous types of wellness exams, including annual physicals, sports physicals, and executive physicals. 

What happens during wellness exams?

What happens during a wellness exam varies depending on your personal health, health history, and the type of exam. 

Annual physicals

Annual physical exams, as their name implies, are yearly physicals during which the practice examines your general health, monitors any chronic conditions, and screens you for signs of emerging health issues, like hypertension. 

Annual physicals are an important part of early disease intervention.

During an annual physical, Dr. Hussaini checks your vitals and performs any necessary sex-specific exams, such as Pap smears or prostate exams. 

They also make sure that your immunizations are up-to-date. If Dr. Hussaini notices any potential health problems emerging, she discusses with you ways that you can reverse course, such as through lifestyle changes.

Sports physicals 

Before you participate in a sport at school, in an amateur league, or in a professional league, you need medical clearance from a qualified health care provider via a sports physical. 

During a sports physical, The Doc’s Here makes sure that you or your child are physically and emotionally prepared to engage in the sport of your choice.

Executive physicals

An executive physical is an extremely thorough physical exam that goes beyond your regular annual physical exam. Executive physicals include things like: 

  • Extensive blood work
  • Chemistry panels to assess organ function
  • Eye exams with refraction, intraocular pressure measurement, and dilation
  • Hearing screening
  • Body composition testing
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Personalized nutritional counseling
  • Cardiovascular assessment 

During an executive physical, The Doc’s Here also performs sex-specific screenings, such as pelvic exams for women.

Who needs wellness exams?

Wellness exams are important at every stage of life. No matter your age, background, or gender identity, wellness exams help ensure your continued health. 

Wellness exams are particularly beneficial to individuals living with chronic conditions, whether they be mental, physical, or emotional. With the support of regular wellness exams, you can learn to manage symptoms in a healthy way and prevent disease in the future.
