Annual physical exam

What is an Annual Physical?

An annual physical or annual physical exam is basically a yearly visit to your doctor to make sure that your overall health is okay and you don’t have any medical problems that you are unaware of.


Below are some of the main purpose of an annual physical:

  • As primary prevention
  • To identify risk factors for common chronic diseases
  • To detect a disease that has no apparent symptom
  • As a mean for the doctor to counsel patients to promote healthy habits
  • To update clinical data
  • To update vaccinations
  • To enhance relationship between you and your doctor

Your annual physical is also a good opportunity for you to discuss with your doctor about any problems or symptoms you are experiencing. This is also a good chance to bring up your questions or concerns regarding some of your medications including birth control, vitamins, and more.
