Physical Exams

What should I expect from a physical exam?

There are numerous types of physical exams designed to accomplish different goals. Some physical exams, like a pre-employment physical or a sports physical, follow specific protocols and evaluate aspects of your health that a typical yearly exam may not include.

All types of physical exams, however, include the basics, like your vital signs, a review of your medical history, and a discussion about the medications you take. Cancer screening, immunizations, and issues like the quality of your sleep and stress levels are also important.

Otherwise, Dr. Larson at SourceMD: Integrated Wellness Solutions always customizes your physical exam to meet your health needs.

What makes a concierge physical exam different?

SourceMD: Integrated Wellness Solutions offers concierge care, which means you pay a set fee in return for specific services. When you receive concierge care, Dr. Larson devotes more time to your annual exam than what you’d normally expect from a routine physical.

He takes extra time to talk with you, learn about your concerns, and answer your questions. He also focuses on detecting the health and lifestyle factors that increase your risk for chronic diseases, including your diet, nutrition, exercise, stress, and mental health.

In addition to a comprehensive physical examination, the team at SourceMD: Integrated Wellness Solutions offers services like:

  • In-office ultrasound screenings
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Remote blood pressure and EKG monitoring
  • Heart rate variability testing
  • Screening for chronic disease

You can also count on learning the practical steps you can take to improve any lifestyle problems identified during your exam. Whenever possible, you’ll use new technological tools to make wellness medicine more collaborative and precise.

Whether you need help with a relationship, need to reduce stress, or start a fitness regimen, Dr. Larson can help.

What is an executive physical exam?

Executives spend long days under intense stress, which means their health is at risk, and they don’t have time to get a comprehensive physical and health care screenings from several specialists.

To protect the health of their executives, companies can contract with Dr. Larson to provide executive physicals.

An executive physical exam is an intensive exam that’s conveniently arranged around your work schedule and personalized for your health needs.

Executive physicals are also quite extensive so that multiple assessments of your health are measured at one time. For example, your physical may include:

  • Extensive blood work
  • Specialized lab tests
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Fitness testing
  • Cardiovascular assessment
  • Body composition testing
  • Vision and hearing tests
  • Mental health assessment
