What is an annual physical?

An annual physical is an exam that your primary care provider conducts regularly in order to check in on your general, overall health. This way, they’ll not only obtain your current health status and ensure your physical well-being, but you’ll also have the opportunity to ask them any questions about your medical concerns that you may have.

Why should I get an annual physical?

You should get a physical on a yearly basis because, not only do you want to keep track of any regular changes that may be occurring in your body, but it’s also a good way of building a trusted relationship between you and your physician. This exam is highly recommended as a way of maintaining and optimizing a healthy lifestyle.
