Annual Physicals Q & A

What are annual physicals?

Cima Medical Centers provides a broad range of physicals to help you and your family maintain lasting good health. These physicals include annual wellness visits, pre-employment physicals, school and sports physicals, and pre-operative physicals performed before surgery. 

Physical exams typically include bloodwork and an electrocardiogram (EKG), and in some cases, specific tests, such as:

  • Urinalysis
  • Chest X-ray
  • Pulmonary function test
  • Hearing test

The exact tests you’ll need depend on a range of factors, such as your age, existing health conditions, and job requirements in the case of a pre-employment physical. Cima Medical Centers provides a convenient onsite lab with comprehensive testing capabilities.

What happens during a woman's annual physical?

Your Cima Medical Centers provider asks about your health history, including past illnesses, surgeries, and medications you’re currently taking. They perform a physical exam, which may include screenings, such as:

  • Pap smear
  • Pelvic exam
  • Breast exam

Your provider may recommend bloodwork to check for high cholesterol or diabetes. Depending on your age, they may also recommend a mammogram.

Your Cima Medical Centers provider discusses immunizations. You may wish to get a flu shot or be vaccinated against human papillomavirus (HPV), a leading cause of cervical cancer.

What happens at a man’s health exam?

Similar to a woman’s annual physical, an annual checkup for men includes a review of your health history and a physical exam. Your Cima Medical Centers provider recommends screening tests check for potential health problems that affect men, including high blood pressure and heart disease. 

Screening tests are generally based on your age. For example, men between the ages of 18-39 may need screening for high cholesterol and diabetes. If you're between the ages of 40-64, your provider also suggests screening you for signs of prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, and osteoporosis.

What is a school physical?

A back-to-school checkup is a comprehensive annual physical to evaluate your child's physical health and address any developmental, emotional, or social concerns. 

Your Cima Medical Centers provider takes your child's vital signs. They test for diabetes, anemia, and high cholesterol, and perform a vision screening. Your provider also discusses the importance of a healthy diet and regular exercise during the school physical.
