ADULT PHYSICAL EXAMS AND HEALTH MAINTENANCE

A health maintenance exam is a medical appointment that provides preventive services, counseling, education and disease screening, based on your age and gender. A health maintenance exam has many names: annual physical exam, preventive exam, complete physical, yearly checkup or wellness exam.

 

The physical examination is an opportunity to focus on disease prevention and health promotion. A health maintenance exam includes:

  • Health history

  • A review of all health and lifestyle risk factors

  • An exam of all systems including cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, musculoskeletal, reproductive and behavioral

  • Laboratory studies appropriate for age, risk and sex

  • Discussion of recommended lifestyle changes

 
SPORTS AND CAMP PHYSICALS
(Insurance or Cash payments accepted)

 

During sport and camp physicals the provider review the medical history and immunizations, perform a simple physical exam to determine if you are able to safely participate in your chosen sport or camp activities. If the school or camp does not provides with a physical form, a clinical visit summary will be given at the time of the visit.  

 

WELL BABY / CHILD EXAMS AND EDUCATION
(Insurance or Cash payments accepted)

 

At this exam, the health care provider will check the child's growth and development in order to find or prevent problems. The provider will record your child's height, weight, and other important information. Hearing, vision, and other screening tests will be part of some visits. Even if your child is healthy, well-child visits are a good time to focus on your child's wellness. Talking about ways to improve care and prevent problems helps keep your child healthy.

Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. Children have more well-child visits when they are younger. This is because development is faster during these years.

 

After the baby is born, the next visit should be 2 to 3 days after bringing the baby home.

It is recommended that visits occur at the following ages:

 

  • Weekly until 1 month of age, then

  • 2 months

  • 4 months

  • 6 months

  • 9 months

  • 12 months

  • 15 months

  • 18 months

  • 2 years

  • 2 1/2 years

  • 3 years

 

VACCINES: PREVENTATIVE AND REQUIRED

 (Insurance or Cash payments accepted)

 

Childhood vaccines protect children from a variety of serious or potentially fatal diseases, including diphtheria, measles, meningitis, polio, tetanus and whooping cough. If these diseases seem uncommon — or even unheard of — it's usually because these vaccines are doing their job.
