Physical Examination Q & A

What is included in a physical examination?

Regular physical exams are an important part of preventive medicine. Employers or schools also sometimes require physical exams, and you may not be able to see your regular doctor quickly enough. At Huntington Beach Urgent Care, Dr. Schwartz conducts standard tests and assessments that are part of a physical exam, which may include measurements of:

  • Weight and height
  • Blood pressure
  • Ear, nose, and throat health
  • Lung capacity
  • Joint movement
  • Heart rate
  • Organ health

Dr. Schwartz might also ask you questions to determine your level of health and fitness.

What type of physical exams are offered?

Dr. Schwartz and his team offer several types of urgent care physical exams. These include:

Sports or camp exams

Make sure your child is fit and healthy enough to play a new sport or attend a camp. Dr. Schwartz can also address sports injuries, like sprains, cuts, or minor breaks.

School physicals

Kids often need a physical exam before starting the new school year. Dr. Schwartz makes sure these appointments are comfortable and efficient for both you and your child.

Employment physicals

Pre-employment screening requirements sometimes include a physical exam. Dr. Schwartz can make sure you’re fit enough to do the job and provide the necessary paperwork showing proof of your health.

If it’s been a while since you’ve seen a doctor, Dr. Schwartz can also give you a general physical exam. This might be helpful if you don’t have a primary care doctor and you’re experiencing new symptoms.

What happens after my physical examination?

Some results of your physical exam are available right away. Dr. Schwartz can discuss the outcomes of your appointment and recommend the next steps. The office will help you get necessary paperwork if you need proof of your health for a new job or your child’s school enrollment.

In some cases, you might need additional medical attention or tests. If so, the team can connect you with other specialists or help you schedule a follow-up appointment.
