Physicals Q & A

What’s included in a physical?

A routine physical includes various tests, diagnostic procedures, and screenings. The primary purpose is to ensure that your body is functioning well and you’re not at risk for any major health problems.

What’s included in your physical depends on your age, your family history of medical conditions, and the reason for it. During your exam, Dr. Levan might address areas like:

  • Blood pressure
  • Weight
  • Lung health
  • Diabetes or cholesterol screening
  • Heart health
  • Bone and joint health
  • Vision and hearing

For a school or immigration physical, Dr. Levan may recommend specific immunizations or vaccinations. For a Department of Transportation physical, often called a CDL or DOT physical, she measures your vision, reaction time, and other factors that may affect your ability to operate a vehicle safely.

What types of physicals are offered?

Broadway Wellness PC offers standard physical examinations as well as physicals you might need for a specific purpose:

  • School physicals: These are often required before each new school year or summer camp. Physicals include routine vaccinations and age-specific tests.
  • CDL or DOT: Physicals for these instances are necessary to get a commercial driver’s license and obtain a job with the Department of Transportation.
  • Immigration: These physicals are required to obtain US citizenship when moving from another country.

If it’s been a while since you’ve had a physical or you’re looking for a new primary care physician, you can also visit Broadway Wellness PC for a routine physical exam.
