WHAT'S INCLUDED IN AN ANNUAL PHYSICAL?
Regardless of age or health status, all adults need to have "wellness exams," or well-checks, once a year. These yearly physicals comprise specific tests that are given to assess the functional ability of your body and your overall wellness. Routine exams may include blood work, blood pressure and cholesterol checks, height and weight checks, and more. Through these tests, Dr. McKerahan and his team will be able to get a sense of your blood glucose levels, how well your thyroid is operating, and whether or not you need to incorporate a new medication or diet changes into your life. To make sure that your lungs are healthy, you may also need to have a chest x-ray every so often. Dr. McKerahan will go over everything that needs to be done during your appointment, and we make an effort to report the results back to you as soon as possible.
Our office is proud to see patients of all ages for a wide range of concerns. In the event that you need specific gynecological or psychiatric help, Dr. McKerahan will refer you to one of his trusted colleagues in that field to provide you with the specialized attention you need.
