Whatever the reason for your exam, Tri-County Urgent Care, Health And Wellness Center’s walk-in physicals are quick and easy. To shorten your wait time, just schedule a visit online, you can also download forms online in advance. Then, once you’re here, our on-site labs, X-rays, and testing services can provide most everything you need at one convenient location.

WHY GET A PHYSICAL?

Simply put, the purpose of a physical examination is prevention. Whether you have a child in need of a sports physical, or you’re an adult who needs a DOT physical, your exam can be one of the best ways to screen for illnesses or other health concerns. The exam will reassure that you are currently in good health or identify a health issue that can be noticed and addressed.

A comprehensive physical examination helps your provider identify medical problems at an early stage so that they can be more easily addressed and managed. These include high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, and diabetes, to name a few. Your physical can also be a good time to pinpoint any potential weight problems that could lead to obesity, and we can counsel you on some simple ways you can manage the problem. In other cases, a physical exam may be required for pre- employment or as part of an occupational medical exam. Whatever the reason for your physical, these exams can be crucial to your overall health. Tri-County Urgent Care Health And Wellness Center makes it easy and convenient to get one any day of the week, right in your own neighborhood.

WHAT IS A PHYSICAL?

Although physicals vary depending on their purpose and the provider, most consist of the following:

  • Medical history: This involves a review of any past or current concerns, an evaluation of lifestyle or behaviors, such as smoking, diet, and exercise, as well as a check of your vaccinations and an update of your personal and family medical history.

  • Check of vital signs: During this portion of the exam, your blood pressure, heart, and respiration rates will be checked, as well as your temperature.

  • General appearance: Your examiner can learn much about your health simply by observing your appearance. He or she may look for signs of mental quickness, examine the health of your skin, or even observe you as you stand or walk.

 

Additionally, most physicals include an examination of the following:

  • Heart

  • Lungs

  • Head & neck

  • Abdomen

  • Reflexes, balance & muscle strength (neurological)

  • Nails & skin

  • In some cases, you may also require lab tests, such as a blood count, urinalysis, and chemistry panel. Other tests may be needed if potential medical problems are detected.

WHERE TO GET A PHYSICAL EXAM?

If you require a physical exam for any of the reasons outlined, your Tri-County Urgent Care, Health And Wellness Center team is available to help. Our goal is to give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re in good physical health—rather than add any additional daily stress that could lead to physical illness.
