What are physicals?

The goal of a physical exam is to identify potential warning signs of underlying medical issues before they cause complications. The routine exam is also an ideal time to bring any questions or concerns you have about your health to your medical provider.

Vincit Medical Practice & Aesthetics offers routine physicals for adults and children. Yessica takes a whole-person approach to evaluating your physical, mental, and emotional health during the exam.

She can also provide resources that you can use to optimize your overall wellness and lower your risk for chronic disease and other health complications.

When should I schedule a physical?

Schedule a physical exam at Vincit Medical Practice & Aesthetics for yourself or your family members once a year, even if you feel well and don’t have any unusual symptoms.

You may also need to schedule a physical before you start a new job or before your child starts school or plays organized sports. The goal of a physical is to ensure you’re healthy enough to participate in the activity safely.

What happens during a physical?

During your initial Vincit Medical Practice & Aesthetics physical, Yessica reviews your personal and family medical histories. This helps her identify your risk factors for certain medical conditions. She also asks about your lifestyle, diet, employment, relationships, and other factors that influence your physical and mental wellness.

Your physical exam includes an assessment of your body. Yessica notes important details about your health, including your:

  • Weight
  • Height
  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Skin health
  • Lung function
  • Body temperature

You may also need blood work to check for type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, nutritional deficiencies, and other issues that can interfere with your health. Yessica can also screen for anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.

Annual physicals are a great time to get updates on immunizations that protect you from contagious diseases like measles and tetanus.

Yessica can recommend lifestyle changes, diet improvements, daily exercises, and weight loss strategies that support your long-term health. Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy is also available in-office to correct nutritional deficiencies.

If Yessica identifies health issues during the exam, she customizes a treatment plan. Acute and chronic care services are available to monitor your progress with treatment.
