On the day of your annual physical, a member of the FH Medical Care team takes you to an exam room and asks you a series of questions about your medical history. They might also ask you about your lifestyle and if you smoke, drink alcohol, and/or exercise regularly. After they take your temperature and assess your blood pressure, Dr. Hamid takes over.
Dr. Hamid begins your annual physical by examining your skin for any unusual marks or growths. Next, he has you lie down and feels your abdomen to determine the size, location, and health of your internal organs.
Afterward, Dr. Hamid uses a stethoscope to listen to your heart and respiration. He also looks in your ears, nose, and throat and measures your height, weight, and pulse. Depending on your age and health history, Dr. Hamid might also recommend a complete blood count (CBC) or another type of lab panel.
Don’t put off your annual physical any longer. Make an appointment at FH Medical Care today by calling the office or requesting an appointment online.
