Physicals Q & A

What are physicals?

Physical exams are a preventive health care service to assess your overall health and function. Routine physicals are also an opportunity for Dr. Aziz to identify potential medical issues in the earliest stages before they negatively affect your health.

You should schedule a physical once a year, even if you’re feeling well. You may also need a physical before you attend school, participate in sports, or start a new job as part of the registration process to ensure you’re healthy.

What can I expect during a routine physical?

During a routine physical, Dr. Aziz reviews your personal and family medical history and discusses any health concerns or symptoms you have. He physically examines your body and notes details about your health, such as:

  • Weight
  • Height
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Heart and lung health
  • Skin health
  • Muscle strength
  • Joint flexibility

Dr. Aziz may also order blood work or other diagnostic tests if you have risk factors for chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease. He ensures you’re updated on vaccines against contagious diseases like mumps, tetanus, and the seasonal flu.

As part of your physical, Dr. Aziz can also recommend lifestyle and diet changes you can make to improve your health. He offers personalized weight-loss services to lower your risk factors for obesity-related diseases and disorders.

Prestige Primary Care, P.A. also offers several specialized physicals in-office.

What specialized physicals are available?

Prestige Primary Care, P.A. provides specialized physicals that meet the requirements of state and federal government organizations. Available physicals include:

DOT physicals

DOT physicals are health assessments you need to renew your commercial driver’s license (CDL). These physicals confirm you can meet the demands of your job and operate a vehicle safely.

Immigration physicals

Immigration physicals are a requirement of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for those immigrating and becoming a permanent resident of the United States. The exam checks for diseases like tuberculosis and other physical and mental health issues that may pose a threat to the public.

Dr. Aziz completes the required paperwork you need after you pass your physical. If you have health issues that won’t pass a DOT or immigration physical, Dr. Aziz can recommend any treatment strategies you need to improve your health.
