Annual Physicals Q & A

What are annual physicals?

Annual physicals are comprehensive medical assessments of your physical and mental health. The experts at JAM Wellness Clinics are highly trained in family medicine and offer a variety of evaluations and treatments that match your needs.

Annual physicals allow your provider to screen for acute illnesses, injuries, chronic diseases, and more.

What should I expect during an annual physical?

During an annual physical, JAM Wellness Clinics specialists evaluate your body weight, body mass index (BMI), pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They discuss your symptoms and medical history and complete a physical exam.

During the exam, your provider evaluates your eyes, heart, throat, neck, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, and more. They could assess your vision, hearing, or heart (using an electrocardiogram (EKG) or other heart function tests).

For women, JAM Wellness Clinics providers offer pelvic exams and Pap tests to screen for cervical cancer or other gynecological problems. They provide prostate exams for men.

Your family medicine specialist may suggest you complete blood tests, urine tests, bone density scans, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out additional medical issues.

Which family medicine treatments might I need?

After a physical exam, your JAM Wellness Clinics provider lets you know if you’re a candidate for preventive medicine or treatments for illnesses, injuries, or diseases. They offer:

  • Vaccinations, including the annual flu shot
  • Birth control
  • Health education
  • Injections
  • Oral prescription medications
  • Inhalers
  • Wound care
  • Injury care
  • Specialist referrals

Your provider can help you manage an illness, chronic disease, or ongoing pain. They personalize each treatment as needed to give you the best health outcomes.

If you need a physical exam for work, sports, school, or camp, your primary care provider fills out the necessary paperwork and gives you a copy.

When should I schedule annual physicals?

As the name implies, you should schedule annual physicals every year or more often if your provider recommends it. You can book an appointment with the JAM Wellness Clinics team any time you need a health exam for work or school, when you feel ill, or if you have concerns or questions about your health.
