AccuHealth’s team of board certified and licensed physicians will take the time to sit with you during your physical to review your past personal and family medical history, lifestyle choices, and any concerns that you have, and will conduct the following physical examinations:
- Heart Exam –┬áListening to your heart with a stethoscope, the physician might detect an┬áirregular heartbeat, a┬áheart murmur, or other clues to┬áheart disease.
- Lung Exam –┬áUsing a stethoscope, a physician listens for crackles, wheezes, or decreased breath sounds. These and other sounds are clues to the presence of heart or┬álung disease.
- Head and Neck Exam –┬áOpening up and saying “ah” shows off your throat and┬átonsils. The quality of your┬áteeth┬áand gums also provides information about your overall health.┬áEars, nose,┬ásinuses,┬áeyes, lymph nodes,┬áthyroid, and carotid arteries may also be examined.
- Abdominal Exam –┬áThe physician will use a range of examination techniques including tapping your┬áabdomen┬áto detect┬áliver┬ásize and presence of abdominal fluid, listening for bowel sounds with a stethoscope, and palpating for tenderness.
- Neurological Exam –┬áNerves, muscle strength, reflexes, balance, and mental state may be assessed.
- Dermatological Exam –┬áSkin and nail findings could indicate a dermatological problem or disease somewhere else in the body.
- Extremities Exam –┬áThe physician will look for physical and sensory changes. Pulses can be checked in your arms and legs. Examining joints can assess for abnormalities.
Our electronic health records software will also give the physician the ability to view the results of your biometric screening in real-time. All of these factors will allow the physician to determine what you may be at risk for and which┬áultrasound exams┬áto order.
