Physical Examinations in Waltham, MA

You owe it to yourself and your family to live a long and healthy life. Routine physical exams are important for the early detection of illness and disease and for your overall health.

A typical routine check-up will include a review of your medical history – the past and present medical problems, medications, surgeries, hospitalizations, allergies, and family history. It’s important to come prepared with this information as well as a list of any questions or concerns. This will enable the physician to order any needed tests, prescribe treatment, or give further medical advice. Routine physicals will also include measuring your height, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate. The comprehensive nature of the exam and any additional testing will depend on your age and symptoms.

Some of the physical examinations we can perform at AFC Urgent Care Waltham include:

An annual physical exam will allow you to establish a  baseline for things such as weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol so changes can be detected. Routine exams are prevention-focused, not problem-focused and are often covered by most insurance plans with no co-pay. We also offer a very low fee for service rate in cases where the physical is not covered or the patient does not have health insurance. We always encourage you to contact your insurance provider directly with any questions as coverage can vary.  Taking advantage of these benefits may save you money on large doctor or hospital bills down the road.
