Annual Wellness Exams Q & A

What happens during a physical examination?

During a standard physical, Dr. Gandhi provides a number of services to evaluate your overall health, including monitoring or checking your:

  • Blood pressure
  • Heart and respiration rates
  • Temperature
  • Heart and lungs, using a stethoscope
  • Throat
  • Abdomen
  • Lymph nodes and thyroid

Is an annual wellness exam a physical?

Although a wellness exam includes a complete physical, there are other important aspects of an annual wellness exam, including:

  • Immunizations
  • Laboratory tests like blood work and X-rays
  • Health screenings
  • Personal health history
  • Evaluation of your current health condition

Do you perform lab work in-house?

For your convenience, Synergy Medical has a variety of diagnostic testing equipment on-site. Having on-site diagnostics also expedites the diagnosis and treatment process, since Dr. Gandhi doesn't have to wait for test results.

If Dr. Gandhi wants you to get an electrocardiogram (EKG) to check your heart or a pulmonary function test (PFT) to check your lungs, you won’t be sent to another facility. If you need lab work done or blood drawn, Synergy Medical’s provider of choice is Clinical Laboratory, which is conveniently located in the same building. We also perform hemoglobin, glucose, urine and pregnancy test at the time of service.  If lab work is needed there is a certified lab located in the building.

Do I need an annual wellness exam if I’m healthy?

The goal of wellness exams and preventive care is to maintain good overall health, and the best way to prevent disease or chronic conditions from occurring is by learning about and taking preventive care measures like wellness exams even when you aren’t sick.

Through preventive care, health issues can be caught early, when they are easier to treat. In the long run, you’ll spend less time and money at the doctor’s office or hospital by having regular wellness exams.

Dr. Gandhi encourages you to take charge of your well-being and will guide you to the right decisions about your health. Take the next step to being a healthier you. Book an appointment online or call Synergy Medical today.
