What Are Physicals?
Physicals are preventive exams you schedule each year, even when you’re feeling well. The goals of a physical are to track changes in your health from one year to the next and to identify health issues in their earliest stages. Annual physicals are a great way to stay on top of your health. At Carlsbad Urgent Care San Marcos, our medical team offers comprehensive physicals for children and adults.
Carlsbad Urgent Care San Marcos also provides specialized immigration and Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals that meet local, state, and federal requirements. Learn more about DOT Physicals here.
Walk into our urgent care clinic or book your appointment online to schedule physicals for you and your family. While you should schedule a physical as a part of your routine health care, you and your children may also need physicals for work, school, organized sports, and recreational activities.
What Happens During A Routine Physical?
During a routine physical, our certified medical provider spends time reviewing your overall health as well as personal and family medical histories to assess if you need additional testing/screenings for conditions such as diabetes or high cholesterol. Your doctor will also discuss your lifestyle, your job, and any questions or concerns you have about your physical or mental health. Your doctor will then examine your body and note vital information about your health such as your:
- Lung function
- Heart rhythm
- Blood pressure
- Body temperature
If you have existing health issues, you may need blood work or other diagnostic tests to ensure your condition is well-controlled. We have on-site labs for a comprehensive visit. Adults may also need referrals for mammograms, colon cancer screenings, and bone density tests.
After passing your physical, our certified providers can complete the necessary paperwork that you need for school or sports registration, work, or your immigration application.
What Happens If I Don’t Pass My Physical?
If the San Marcos Urgent Care medical team identifies a potential health issue that requires further testing or treatment, you might not pass your physical. If that’s the case, do not worry, your doctor will work with you on a treatment plan to address your health issues. During a follow-up visit, the doctor typically performs another physical to evaluate your health after your treatment begins.
Walk-ins are welcome or you can call to schedule a physical for yourself or your kids.
