What Happens During a Physical Exam?
One of the best ways to ensure that you are healthy and prevent medical conditions from becoming serious is to visit the doctor annually for a physical exam. For most patients the exam will follow a routine and will begin with collecting the person’s medical history. The doctor will also evaluate the person for signs of any medical condition or illness.

When a disease is discovered early on it is usually much easier to treat. Vital signs will usually be taken to help the doctor get a picture of your overall health and include blood pressure, breathing levels, heart rate, and temperature.
