Why do I need a physical exam?
Physical exams are important preventative screenings that allow your doctor to evaluate your body’s normal everyday function. This ensures any potential health issues can be discovered early, allowing for better treatment options, should they be necessary. Physical exams are often required for work, school, summer camp, and sports. These specialized exams are designed to look for specific issues that may preclude a person from participating in certain activities. At Medical Access Urgent Care, our doctors are trained in the administration of these physical exams, so you can receive the information you need to move forward with your plans.
What types of physical exams can you perform?
In addition to standard physicals, the doctors at all 3 of our locations are trained to perform immigration physicals, sports physicals, DOT physicals, pre-employment physicals, and executive physicals. We provide physical exams that meet the necessary standards for daycare providers, school and college admissions, as well as summer camp or other specialized retreats. We offer the complete medical evaluations required and can also provide you with the specialized paperwork necessary. Our physicians also perform cardiac evaluations including ECHO cardiograms, EKGs, and stress tests that can be especially important for patients over the age of 40 who may be at greater risk for developing cardiac disease or other complications.
Are your immigration physicals performed by certified civil surgeons?
Yes. Two of our exceptional providers, Dr. Manbir Takhar and Dr. Leonard Kassis are certified to perform immigration exams, per the requirement of the federal government. Your immigration physical will include the required exam, RPR testing, and screening for tuberculosis (TB). You should bring the required forms with you, including all vaccination records you have available. If you require immunizations, there will be an additional fee, as these are not included in the price of your immigration physical. When you are in need of a physical exam for immigration, it is important that you find a doctor who is certified and experienced, as this will help ensure your paperwork is properly filed in order to expedite your immigration process.
Do you provide vaccinations onsite?
At Medical Access Urgent Care, we believe it is essential for both children and adults to adhere to the recommended vaccination guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Depending on your age, certain immunizations may be recommended as part of your physical exam appointment. We provide vaccines for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis A and B, meningitis, measles, mumps, and rubella, typhoid, varicella, and yellow fever. We also offer allergy shots, flu shots, and many vaccinations recommended for people intending to travel outside of the United States. If you have questions about which vaccines may be appropriate for your situation, our experienced doctors can answer your questions.
What will happen during my physical exam?
While the exact specifications of your exam may vary, your doctor will typically perform many of the same evaluations, regardless of the type of physical exam you are undergoing. Your doctor will typically record your height, weight, and blood pressure, as well as evaluating the function of your lungs, heart, and sinuses. They will discuss your individual and family medical history, and depending on your age and the requirements of your exam, they may perform blood or urine testing. If you have specific questions about what testing might be required, our friendly and informed staff can help you understand the provisions of your desired exam.
