Annual Physicals Q & A

What are annual physicals?

Annual physicals are also known as wellness visits, which differ from sick visits. They are routine examinations to evaluate your overall health. 

During your physical exam, the team at Stephen Renzi Medical PC encourages you to use these appointments as a time to mention any changes in your health. You can also ask questions or talk about health topics of concern.

Why are annual physicals needed?

Annual physicals keep your health in check and promote long-term wellness. Also, if you or your children play sports, annual physicals are usually required before you’re cleared to participate. Sports programs want players to start the season healthy to reduce the risk of sickness for you and your team.

Other reasons to see your care team annually include:

  • Update immunizations
  • Check for any medical concerns
  • Evaluate your fitness and weight
  • Discuss healthy food choices and habits

In addition, your routine checkup records stay on file to monitor any changes in your health throughout the years.

Annual visits also allow you to develop a relationship with your providers at Stephen Renzi Medical PC, which can be important for discussing intimate details of your health.

How should I prepare for an annual physical?

When you come to your appointment, you should bring the following:

  • List of medications
  • Recent, relevant test results
  • Medical history
  • Surgical history
  • Contact information of other doctors previously seen

Your providers might have questions as they review your information with you during your appointment.

What do annual physicals include?

Your annual physical covers three components: your overall, general appearance; your vital signs; and your medical history, including your family medical history. 

While looking at your appearance, the team examines the health of your skin, your movement abilities, plus your memory skills and mental quickness.

The physical portion of your visit includes checking the following:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Temperature
  • Blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing
  • Heart and lung health
  • Reflexes 
  • Spine
  • Reflexes
  • Eyes, nose, throat, and lymph nodes

If the team finds any issues of concern, they may recommend further evaluation, such as blood tests to check your glucose or cholesterol levels.
