Physical Exam

During a physical exam, a provider will review medical history and examine your potential employees to evaluate their overall health and determine if there are any illnesses or chronic conditions that could potentially affect their ability to perform job duties. During the exam, information gathered. This can later be used as a baseline when compared to other exams over time, such as annual exams

A standard physical exam typically includes an overview of the patient’s medical history as well as an inspection of vital signs, vision acuity, a head, eyes, ears, nose and throat examination, a gastrointestinal examination, a cardiovascular examination, a respiratory assessment, a musculoskeletal assessment, a neurological examination and a skin and lymph node check.
