To begin, your height and weight will be taken, and then vital signs will be measured. Height, weight, and vital signs all act as a barometer of important bodily functions and provide a sort of quick snapshot of your overall health. Tracking vital signs over time, including blood pressure, pulse, body temperature, and respiration rates, are useful tools to assess your risk for numerous health conditions and chronic diseases. Before your physical exam, a family history will be taken, and you will discuss certain lifestyle choices pertaining to your health with your physician, including smoking, alcohol/drug use, sleeping patterns, sexual activity, diet and exercise. Your Routine checkup at AFC Urgent Care East Meadow also includes a head-to-toe physical exam.
