What you can expect at your annual physical exam with UEM

Annual Physical Exams at Upper Echelon

The first stage of your annual physical is a review of your medical history and current health issues. Your Upper Echelon Medical provider can answer any questions you have, and you can raise any issues (such as vague symptoms like fatigue) that might be bothering you.

The next stage is a physical exam. Your provider weighs you, measures your blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing, and checks your heart and lung sounds. They press on your abdomen (to feel your internal organs), test your reflexes, and check your eyes, ears, and mouth. Your provider also gets an update of your overall wellbeing -your sleep habits, diet, stress levels, etc.

Women might require a pap smear to screen for cervical cancer as part of their annual physical. Upper Echelon Medical  offers separate women’s health exams focusing on reproductive and sexual health.

Depending on what your provider discovers during the visit or how long ago your last blood work was taken, your provider might recommend additional testing to be done to eliminate potentially life-threatening conditions like cancer, diabetes, hypertension, or hyperlipidemia.

Blood and urine tests are the most common and can detect problems such as nutrient deficiencies, anemia, infections, hormone imbalances, and much more. If your provider has any concerns, they might order further tests or diagnostic imaging procedures like an X-ray or MRI.
