Physical exams are a cornerstone of good health, and they’re one of many services provided by Stephanie Guignard, CPNP, and the team at Mom's Choice Mobile Healthcare in McKinney, Texas. When you or your family needs top-quality physicals, meeting that need is a simple process. Just call the office to schedule an in-home exam, or try the easy online booking tool to find a time that works for your household.
Physical exams are a routine part of health care and a need that should never be overlooked. These visits allow your health care provider to assess your health and wellness.
Physicals also provide a chance for you to ask questions or express concerns about your health journey. Are you wondering if you should add supplements to your diet? Thinking of starting a new healthy-eating routine? Your physical exam visits are the right place to discuss those issues.
Any needed immunizations can also be provided during your physicals. Just ask your practitioner which shots you need to complete your immunization record.
A fully fleshed-out medical record is a powerful tool for healthy living. This record is a living document, meaning it shifts and changes as you move through the phases of your life.
Each time you have a routine physical, the information gleaned from that exam is added to your permanent medical record. Over time, this document becomes an invaluable resource in shaping your care.
Your personal medical record also allows your practitioner to track changes over time. If there are areas of concern, such as rising blood pressure or cholesterol, interventions can be made before the condition becomes a serious matter.
Best of all, your medical record travels with you throughout life. If you relocate, this document helps your new health care team get a running start on your care. Further, should you ever become incapacitated for any reason, your records will help loved ones partner with your care team to choose the right course of action.
Most physicals are routine wellness exams, and they’re performed on an annual basis. These visits serve as an opportunity to “check-in” with your practitioner and get the screenings that are appropriate for your age and health.
From time to time, you might need a specialized exam. Some occupations require special health screenings, and adults might find they need a sports exam before signing up for a rec league or office sports team.
Kids often need specialized exams when enrolling in school or starting a new year of organized sports. Some summer camps may even ask that your child has a physical prior to the start of activities.
If you or a loved one needs a physical for any reason, having the visit performed in your own home is incredibly convenient. Just call Mom's Choice Mobile Healthcare to set up a visit, or spend a few moments on the online scheduling page to find a good time.
