What to Expect at Your Physical

An annual male medical exam at American Family Care locations in New Mexico gives you a solid picture of your health. Find out if you need to make changes or if you’re on the right track. During your physical exam, your provider will check your:

  • Medical History - This is your chance to mention any complaints or concerns about your health. We will ask you about lifestyle behaviors like smoking, excessive alcohol use, sexual health, diet, and exercise. Your American Family Care locations in New Mexico provider will also check your vaccination status and update your personal and family medical history.
  • Pulse - We’ll measure your pulse to help detect any heart conditions.
  • Weight, Height, BMI - These tests help us determine if you’re at a healthy weight. Taking your height, gender and age into account, your American Family Care locations in New Mexico provider can determine if you are at a healthy weight with a calculation of body mass index (BMI). Overweight and obesity are serious health concerns that can lead to a number of obesity-related health conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes.
  • Blood Pressure - Screening for high blood pressure, also called hypertension, is important to ensure overall health. Frequently, hypertension has no visible symptoms yet can cause serious health conditions if left untreated.
  • O2 Saturation - We’ll measure the oxygen-saturated hemoglobin in your blood. While this measurement can vary depending on your current altitude and activity level, these tests can inform us whether you’re in a safe range.
  • General Appearance - Your American Family Care locations in New Mexico provider gathers a large amount of information about you and your health just by watching and talking to you. How are your memory and mental quickness? Does your skin appear healthy? Can you easily stand and walk?
  • Heart and Lung Exam - Listening to your heart and lungs with a stethoscope, a doctor might detect an irregular heartbeat, a heart murmur, or other clues to heart disease. The doctor will listen for crackles, wheezes, or decreased breath sounds, all clues to the presence of heart or lung disease.
  • Head and Neck Exam - Opening up and saying "ah" shows off your throat and tonsils. The quality of your teeth and gums also provides information about your overall health. Ears, nose, sinuses, eyes, lymph nodes, thyroid, and carotid arteries may also be examined.
  • Blood panel testing - Blood testing measures fatty substances, lipid fats, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), triglycerides, cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), as well as blood sugar levels to check for signs of diabetes. Since American Family Care locations in New Mexico has a lab onsite, we can take your blood right there in the clinic.
