Annual Physicals

Q: What should I expect during my Annual Exam?

A: An annual exam is a once-a-year visit to your primary care provider for a general health check. It generally lasts about 30 minutes. During this appointment you can expect your physician to review the following:

  • General physical exam (blood work and EKG)
  • Update of family health history (any new serious illnesses in your family?)
  • Review of your health history
  • Update of current medications, herbs, and supplements
  • Need for medication refills
  • Evaluation of need for health screening tests based on age and personal and family history (such as mammogram, test for sexually transmitted diseases, and colon cancer screening)
  • Update on immunizations
  • Schedule follow-up visit to discuss new health concerns or address chronic health issues.

Q: Does my insurance cover an Annual Exam?

A: While most insurance companies cover one annual exam a year, it is important that you check with your insurance carrier to review your specific policy. Please note that Medicare does not cover routine annual exams. You may choose to pay for routine physicals and tests out-of-pocket or by using a flexible health-spending plan that your employer may provide.

Lab Results

Dear Patient
