Annual Physical Q & A

What is the annual physical?

The annual physical is an essential exam Dr. Jabeen uses to assess your overall health. It also serves as a tool to help direct your health care plan. Dr. Jabeen is an internal medicine physician who spent years training so she could prevent, diagnose, and treat a wide range of health issues that affect adults. 

Prevention is the primary goal of an internal medicine physician, which emphasizes keeping you from developing a chronic disease or preventing your chronic disease from worsening. Your annual physical helps Dr. Jabeen determine what steps will keep you as healthy as possible.

What can I expect during an annual physical?

You can expect a comprehensive examination when you come in for an annual physical with Dr. Jabeen. In addition to being an expert in matters pertaining to your general adult health, Dr. Jabeen is also a pulmonary and sleep specialist and may spend additional time assessing your pulmonary health and risk factors.

During your annual physical, Dr. Jabeen:

  • Reviews your medical and surgical history
  • Assesses body mass index
  • Discusses medication and supplement use
  • Checks heart rate, blood pressure, and breath sounds
  • Evaluates eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Palpates internal organs
  • Checks reflexes
  • Evaluates skin

She may also request blood work and a urinalysis to evaluate your organ systems more thoroughly. Additionally, Dr. Jabeen may request health screenings based on your age and gender, such as a bone density test, colorectal screening, or a mammogram.

After your examination, Dr. Jabeen spends time talking to you about your health and the things you can do to improve or maintain it. She may recommend making healthier dietary choices, finding time to exercise, and looking for healthy outlets for your stress. She may also recommend vaccinations to protect you from common infectious diseases, such as the flu.

Do I need an annual physical if I have a medical condition?

Yes, if you have a medical condition that requires regular ongoing medical care, you still need an annual physical. 

Dr. Jabeen provides expert care for any medical condition that affects adults, including diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. If you have a chronic health condition, Dr. Jabeen may request that you make regular visits to the office so she can monitor your health and your response to treatment.

However, these regular visits don’t replace your annual exam. While Dr. Jabeen provides a thorough exam every time you come to the office, the annual exam is comprehensive and focuses on your whole health, not your disease.
