Annual Physicals Q&A

What are annual physicals?

An annual physical is a chance for you to check in with Dr. Bryant. It’s crucial to undergo a yearly physical, even if you feel healthy. This head-to-toe overview can catch problems before they become significant health risks.

What kinds of annual physicals are available?

At B Med Mobile Service, Dr. Bryant offers several types of annual physicals, including:


School physicals

Many school districts require students to undergo a physical exam before the start of the new school year. School physicals present an opportunity to discuss unusual symptoms, update immunizations, and assess your child’s general well-being.


Work physicals

If you operate a commercial vehicle or heavy machinery as part of your job, you might be required by law to undergo a work physical. A work physical assesses your mental and physical health. If Dr. Bryant identifies problems that might affect your performance on the job, she makes treatment recommendations.


Preoperative physicals

A preoperative physical makes sure you’re healthy enough to undergo surgery. Modern surgery is safe and usually well-tolerated, but surgical procedures have inherent risks. Dr. Bryant completes an exam and orders lab work during a preoperative physical. She uses that information to help guide your treatment.

What do annual physicals involve?

At B Med Mobile Service, Dr. Bryant tailors annual physicals to each patient’s needs. Even so, most physicals have the same steps:

  • Step one: Check your vital signs
  • Step two: Examine your skin, limbs, ears, eyes, nose, and throat
  • Step three: Learn about your lifestyle, including if you drink or smoke
  • Step four: Undergo sex-specific screenings, like a breast or prostate exam
  • Step five: Update your immunizations (vaccines)
  • Step six: Lab work, including bloodwork and urinalysis
  • Step seven: Refill your prescription medication (if you take any)

If you need to submit paperwork to your child’s school or your employer, Dr. Bryant will fill out those documents.

How do I prepare for an annual physical?

If you want to get the most out of your annual physical, it’s necessary to prepare. Dr. Bryant recommends writing down questions you have and making a list of the medications and supplements you take. If you have diabetes and track your blood sugar or keep a food diary, bring that information with you.
