What is included in a Physical?
There are two parts to a physical. The first part consists of a discussion or questionnaire between you and the nurse practitioner concerning your medical history. With this part, your nurse practitioner will want to know of any serious illnesses among your family members; any allergies or illnesses you have or have had in the past, such as asthma, diabetes, or epilepsy; any previous hospitalizations, injuries, or surgeries; and if you are currently on any medications.
Once the medical history evaluation is completed, a comprehensive head-to-toe physical exam will be conducted by the physician. During this head-to-toe physical, your nurse practitioner will measure your height and weight, take your blood pressure and heart rate, assess your vision, check your heart with a stethoscope or ECG, examine your lungs, use palpation to evaluate your abdomen, check your ears with an otoscope, and your throat with a laryngoscope. The nurse practitioner will also assess your posture, flexibility, strength, and the health of your bones and joints.
A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is a medical exam that evaluates your physical, mental, and emotional fitness for the demands of professional driving. This is exam is typically for all commercial drivers and is mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration(FMCSA). Upon completion of passing this exam, drivers are provided with a certificate of good health. Please bring all necessary documentation from your primary care physician or specialty physician regarding past medical history, surgeries, medications, or current medical diagnoses to assist with completing your physical exam.
When should you receive urgent care services?
When you or a loved one is experiencing a minor, non-life-threatening health emergency, urgent care is your best option for treatment. This is because urgent care offers immediate care for common health conditions on a walk-in basis. You'll be able to walk right in for service and receive medical attention right away, which isn't something your primary care physician can do for you.
Urgent care can provide any kind of minor-emergency or non-emergency healthcare for you or anyone else in your family. It's important to remember that urgent care is for minor and non-emergencies only, so go to urgent care only when you're absolutely sure that the situation is not life-threatening. For instance, you can go to urgent care for annual flu shots, TB testing, medical exams for children, minor sports injuries, and any other common, minor health situations.
