Depending on the patient’s history and overall health, the exact components of a physical may change. There’s no single comprehensive list of tests and checks, since every patient may present a unique combination of issues. However, there are certain components that are frequently included in physical exams. These may include:
During the physical exam, women may also have pelvic and breast exams, including Pap smears and mammograms on a periodic basis. Older women may need bone density scans to diagnose osteoporosis. Men receive testicular exams and prostate cancer screening, and both women and men test for colorectal cancer after age 50.
The physical checks are usually done in the offices, though if Dr. Kainth’s patients are in the hospital or nursing home, he examines on-site if the need arises. Depending on the tests ordered, these may be performed in the offices. Blood tests, for example, are typically drawn at the offices and sent to a lab for analysis. Other tests may be performed at a third party health care provider, such as a clinic, imaging center, or hospital.
