Annual Physicals Q&A

What are annual physicals?

Annual physicals are yearly health checkups. During this exam, your provider focuses on your total body health and discusses routine screenings based on age and risk factors.

Collierville Family Health is a full-service family medicine practice that provides annual physicals for all ages, including infants, children, teens, and adults.

What are the types of annual physicals?

No annual physical is like another, and there are different types of physicals that address specific needs. Types of annual physicals include:

Routine physicals

Routine physicals are performed to assess general health and screen for other diseases and medical problems based on age and other risk factors. During this exam, she reviews your medical history, asks about your current health concerns, and does a full physical exam, lab testing, and health screenings.

Health screenings and testing may include: 

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Chest X-Ray
  • Spirometry
  • Ankle/ Brachial pressure index

The specifics of these routine annual physicals vary depending on your age and medical history. Mrs. Reilly also reviews your vaccination history during routine physicals.

Well-child visits

Well-child visits are physical exams that monitor your child’s growth and development. The frequency of these visits depends on your child’s age.

Mrs. Reilly also performs sports physicals for school, which she can do at the same time as the well-child visit.

Well-woman physicals

Collierville Family Health also performs routine care for women’s health. Mrs. Reilly performs well-woman physicals, including pap smears, to screen for cervical cancer.. 

Additional testing that may be performed at a Well-woman physical may include:

  • Breast Exam
  • Labs to check hormone levels
  • Referrals for mammograms
  • Referrals for bone density testing
  • STD screenings

Mrs. Reilly can also discuss any additional questions or concerns you may have.

What are the differences between annual physicals and wellness exams?

The Medicare annual wellness visit is a health check that focuses on creating or updating your personalized preventive plan. During this visit, Mrs. Reilly checks your height, weight, and blood pressure, have you complete a health risk assessment, and reviews your prescriptions.

She then provides health advice, including a discussion of your health risk factors and the steps you can take to improve your health and reduce your risk of disease. Health screenings, lab tests, and other exams aren’t part of the Medicare annual wellness visit.
