Physical Health Assessment:

During your visit, our healthcare providers will conduct a thorough physical examination to assess your overall health and detect any signs or symptoms of underlying medical conditions. This may include:

  1. Vital Signs: Measurement of vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and body temperature to evaluate cardiovascular health and overall well-being.
  2. Medical History: Review of your medical history, including past illnesses, surgeries, medications, allergies, and family medical history, to identify any predisposing factors or risk factors for certain health conditions.
  3. Screening Tests: Depending on your age, medical history, and risk factors, our healthcare providers may recommend screening tests such as cholesterol screening, blood glucose testing, prostate cancer screening (PSA test), and other laboratory tests to assess your risk of developing certain medical conditions.

Mental Health Evaluation:

In addition to physical health assessment, our healthcare providers will inquire about your mental health and well-being, including your mood, stress levels, sleep patterns, and coping mechanisms. Mental health is an integral component of overall well-being, and addressing mental health concerns is essential for maintaining a healthy and balanced life.
