Physical Exams and Well Visits Q & A

What is a physical exam?

A physical exam is a tool Dr. Lee and his team use to assess your health. Dr. Lee takes a very individualized approach to care and tailors your exam based on the need for your physical and your special health needs.

In general, your physical exam may include:

  • Check of your height and weight
  • Measurement of your blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature
  • Look at your eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Test of your reflexes and arterial pulses
  • Palpation of your inner organs

Dr. Lee and his team may also request additional testing to further assess your health, such as bloodwork, urine test, or echocardiogram. Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent care offers many common diagnostic tests on-site so you don’t have to go to another facility for additional testing.

What are different types of physical exams?

Dr. Lee and his team provide physical exams for general wellness and specific needs. Some of the most common types of physicals provided at Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent Care include:

  • Men’s wellness exam
  • Women’s wellness exam
  • Department of transportation physical
  • Sports and school physicals
  • General adult annual exam

For your wellness exam, Dr. Lee provides all the specialized testing you may need to assess health based on your gender. For example, for women, Dr. Lee and his team offer Pap smears, and for men, special testing to assess prostate health and testosterone levels.

What if I need additional treatment?

Dr. Lee and his team provide the best medical care for anyone who comes in for a physical, no matter the need. Dr. Lee is especially cognizant of hormone balance in both men and women. As you get older, your hormone levels decrease, and this can lead to a variety of symptoms ranging from lack of interest in sex to weight gain.

If you come in for a physical with complaints of symptoms that may indicate a hormone imbalance, Dr. Lee orders a hormone test to check your levels, including estrogen for women and testosterone for men. If your hormone levels are low, Dr. Lee offers bioidentical hormone therapy to restore balance and relieve your symptoms. Bioidentical hormones are a more natural form of hormone replacement and safe for both men and women.
