Physicals Q & A

Alamo City Urgent Care

What is a physical exam?

Physicals are basic health evaluations intended to screen for common medical issues. There are many reasons why you might need a physical.

At Alamo City Urgent Care, LLC, your physician presents you with the documentation required by the organization or entity that requested the exam. These exams are very similar to past exams you may have received from a primary care doctor.

Why would I need a physical?

The reasons you might be asked to have a physical exam vary and may include the following:

  • Starting a new job
  • Heading off to college
  • Preparing to travel abroad
  • Sending a child off to a new camp or school
  • Starting a new youth athletic season

As you can see, coming in for a physical is often a positive step toward a new beginning. The team at Alamo City Urgent Care, LLC makes every effort to make your physical a pleasant experience.

What happens during a physical exam?

During your visit to Alamo City Urgent Care, LLC, expect to discuss your health history, immunization records, and any specific needs or concerns. Your physician also collects your basic health data, including:

  • Weight and height
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Temperature

Basic screenings are another part of the process, including:

  • Lung function
  • Heart function
  • An exam of your eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Skin check
  • Reflexes

Depending on the reason for your exam, specific additional screenings may follow. Some physicals are more involved than others. For example, a physical to begin playing youth softball or attend a summer camp may be different from a physical required to begin a new position as a government position.  

How can I prepare for my physical?

The best way to prepare for a physical exam is to gather all the documents you have regarding your health history, including your immunization records, which might be outlined in more than one document.

The more information you provide your physician, the easier it is to perform a thorough exam and provide you with the information you need. When you’re ready for a physical, the team at Alamo City Urgent Care, LLC is here to help.
