Annual Physicals Q & A
Do I need a physical every year?
Yes! Annual physicals aren’t sick visits, these scheduled appointments are a time for you and your family physician to evaluate your overall health — from head to toe. Even if you have no complaints and continue to have normal exams and test results, you still require an annual check-up.
For instance, heart disease is one of the leading causes of death for women and men in the United States and accounts for approximately one in four fatalities. This cardiac condition develops over time, not overnight, and can cause increased blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
