Comprehensive Physicals Q & A

How often do I need a comprehensive physical?

Concierge Medicine and Wellness recommends annual comprehensive physicals for all patients. The team customizes your comprehensive physical for your needs and risk factors, so you can get the maximum information and most preventive care benefits from your exam.

What is included in comprehensive physicals?

Comprehensive physicals, also called comprehensive executive physicals, are full-body exams that typically include all of the following.

  • Comprehensive blood tests
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Vision screening
  • Hearing screening
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Urinalysis
  • Bone density testing
  • Exercise treadmill testing, if needed

Because your care provider customizes your comprehensive physical at Concierge Medicine and Wellness, you might have other types of tests, as well. 

How do I prepare for a comprehensive physical?

A member of the Concierge Medicine and Wellness team tells you how to prepare at least a few days before your comprehensive physical. Preparation can vary depending on how your comprehensive physical is tailored for you, but some typical prep guidelines include:

Fasting

Fasting, starting the night before the exam, allows for the most accurate blood test results. 

Clean skin

It’s best to avoid lotion or anything else on your skin because it can interfere with electrode application for your EKG.

Comfortable clothing

Your Concierge Medicine and Wellness care provider checks your lungs and heart and also places electrodes on your chest for the EKG, during your comprehensive physical. It’s best to wear comfortable clothing that you can easily unbutton or replace with a hospital gown. 

Of course, it’s important to get plenty of rest before your comprehensive physical. Your Concierge Medicine and Wellness care provider may also give you other specific prep instructions.

When do I get my test results after a comprehensive physical?

Your Concierge Medicine and Wellness care provider schedules a follow-up visit to review your test results with you in detail. Additionally, your care provider makes customized health recommendations during this follow-up visit. 

For example, a comprehensive executive physical might reveal that you have high cholesterol, and your care provider recommends lifestyle changes and/or medications to reduce it to healthy levels. 

You get copies of all test results and recommendations during your follow-up visit, so you can refer to them when needed.
