Comprehensive Physical Exams

Services

A comprehensive physical exam is sometimes referred to as an executive physical. This exam include laboratory tests, pulmonary function testing, chest x-rays, audiograms, EKGs, full-body CAT scans, heart stress tests, mammograms or prostate exams, and a urinalysis.

This process is used by a medical professional to thoroughly check the body of a patient for signs of disease.These examinations also take the patient’s medical and family history into account prior to determining a correct diagnosis and devising a treatment plan.

This data becomes a part of the patient’s medical record. General health examinations are often administered even if the patient reports no health concerns.

Why Does the AMA Medical Group Promote Comprehensive Physical Exams?

Physical exams play a major part in identifying early signs of illness. These exams also promote the building of the doctor-patient relationship, which can be beneficial in medical care. A physical examination also helps you and your doctor establish a baseline and general status of your health. They are recommended at least once a year, especially in people over the age of 50.

These exams are used to:

  • Check for possible disease
  • Identify issues that could be concerning in the future
  • Update necessary immunizations
  • Discuss dietary and exercise routines

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Comprehensive Physical Exam?

Everyone should receive regular health screenings and physical examinations. During these examinations, your doctor may wish to examine a specific part of your body, called a focused physical exam. This is done if your doctor has reason to believe something about it is abnormal and requires further testing to rule anything out.

Patients with a family or personal history of certain diseases, such as cancer, high blood pressure, or diabetes should receive regular health screenings and physical examinations to monitor their health and the progression of any degenerative health conditions.

What to Expect from Your Comprehensive Physical Exam

Physical exams are typically performed during a routine office visit. If you require additional screenings or imaging tests, they may be completed at an imaging center or at a hospital. Blood draws can be completed at the doctor’s office before any samples are sent to a lab for further analysis. Men and women will have different kinds of physical health examinations.

Women typically require a mammogram, a pap smear, a pelvic exam, a cholesterol test, and an osteoporosis screening.

Men typically receive a cholesterol test, a prostate cancer screening, a testicular exam, and an abdominal aortic aneurysm screening.

If you have any concerns during this process, be sure to discuss them with your doctor. Additionally, if you have been experiencing any unpleasant symptoms, it is important to share them with your healthcare team so that any additional diagnostics can be run.

Lastly, it is critical to share any vitamin or holistic regimen you are taking, as these can interfere with certain medications or tests. If your doctor is unaware of what you are taking, it could lead to a delayed or incorrect diagnosis.

I actually moved further away, but kept Dr. Fana because the entire staff and especially Dr. Fana gives you the feeling of “”you are the only patient”. Takes time to thoroughly explain issues and concerns.

One of my reasons for moving back to Florida was to find a medical group that I could communicate with and who could take care of my medical needs for the rest of my life. I am so happy and more satisfied than I could have imagined with Dr. Dones and PA, Benjamin Love. Both take the time to listen to my questions and concerns. They clearly explain options and recommendations very thoroughly in terms that I understand and trust. I am relieved that they know the hospitals, should I ever be hospitalized. I recently sprained my foot on a Sunday night and left a message with the answering service. An x-ray was set up for the next morning as well as an appointment at AMA with Dr. Dones, first thing in the morning. The whole staff is really great and very easy to talk with. It's nice that they have their own lab in the building too. It is a gentle place.
