What are physicals?
Physicals are medical health assessments that you may need for a variety of reasons such as travel, work, school, or sports. They are important as they allow us to monitor your condition and wellbeing, but also identify any potential issues that may affect your health. Early detection allows us to begin treatment before the condition becomes more severe, giving a higher success rate of treatment.
For the most part, everyone undergoes the same physical exam. However, there are differences when it comes to reproductive health. During your physical, we may conduct additional tests or exams particular to your reproductive organs such as a pelvic or prostate exam.
What happens during a physical?
The exact procedure will depend on what type of physical you are having. During the exam, we will review your medical and family history for any potential risk of health complications. If there are any concerns, additional health screenings may be required.
This is a great time to let us know of any concerns or questions you may have regarding your health.
A physical examination typically begins with the measurement of vital signs and responses before undergoing a more comprehensive examination of your condition and health.
Preventative Care Services
Here at Bethel Medical Associates, LLC we believe in the importance of preventative care and having routine screenings to maintain your overall good health. Early detection can be the key to treating women’s cancers and increasing the chances of a full recovery. Our practice offers various cancer screening options so that you can ensure your optimal health.
Breast Cancer Screenings
Clinical breast exams are conducted during each exam to search for any changes in your breasts or unusual lumps. We will ask about your family history and if any members have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Annual mammograms begin at the recommended age of 40.
It is important that you conduct self-breast exams at home so that you can notice any changes in your breast between visits.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 600,000 people in the United States die from heart disease each year, making it the leading cause of death for both men and women. Noting this, medical professionals often suggest that their aging patients or at-risk patients take an electrocardiogram, or EKG, test to check for signs of heart disease.
EKG tests are non-invasive, painless, safe and fast, and they help our doctors check things like heart rhythm and blood flow as well as diagnose previous heart attacks or anything else that seems abnormal. In the best case scenario, the EKG test confirms good heart health. However, if we see something abnormal, we will likely send you for further testing to get an idea of how to best treat or manage the issue.
How does an EKG test work?
The standard EKG test consists of a doctor attaching 10 or more electrodes in the areas of your chest, arms, and legs – the key places where major arteries exist. You’ll then likely start by lying flat while a computer records your heart rhythm. Aside from this “resting” EKG, your doctor may also have you exercise to get an idea of how your heart works under activity. This typically consists of a doctor monitoring your heart as you jog on a treadmill. In most cases, the EKG test lasts less than 20 minutes and quickly helps give the doctor a better understanding of your heart health.
Eating right and getting plenty of exercises is crucial to maintaining good heart health, but EKG tests are an ideal way to either verify heart health or address small issues before they become big ones. It’s why they’re often a part of a physical exam for aging men and women. For more information on EKG tests, contact our medical center today.request an appointment
