What are physicals?
Physicals are comprehensive medical evaluations that assess your health. These exams are also useful for detecting illnesses, diseases, or injuries that require medical intervention. The Claris Concierge Health specialists conveniently travel to your home or office to complete routine physicals.
What should I expect during physicals?
During in-home physicals, your Claris Concierge Health specialist often completes the following:
Body weight evaluation
Your provider weighs you and calculates your body mass index (BMI) to determine your risk of specific medical problems.
Vital signs check
They assess your pulse, blood pressure, temperature, or other vital signs to screen for possible health issues.
Medical history review
Your Claris Concierge Health specialist discusses your symptoms, personal and family history of diseases, medications, and lifestyle habits during a medical history review.
They evaluate your breathing, heartbeat, eyes, ears, throat, neck, abdomen, and more during a physical exam. Pelvic exams, Pap tests for women, and prostate exams for men are also available.
If necessary, diagnostic tests further evaluate your health. Your Claris Concierge Health provider may suggest vision and hearing screenings, blood tests, urine testing, asthma and allergy tests, heart-function tests, nasal swabs, X-rays, or other imaging procedures.
If you need treatment, the Claris Concierge Health providers are here for you. They may recommend you make lifestyle changes, treat a wound or injury, take medicines, use an inhaler, try smoking cessation, or receive IV therapy or other primary care services. You might need care from another specialist if you have a significant medical challenge.
Claris Concierge also offers Botox® to diminish common signs of aging, and medically supervised weight management to help you move toward an ideal body weight and maintain it long-term.
How often should I schedule in-home physicals?
Schedule physicals with the Claris Concierge Health providers every year or whenever you need one for sports, school, or work. Call the office if you have an immediate medical need, have questions about your health, or develop unusual symptoms.
