A cornerstone of good healthcare and preventive medicine is a comprehensive physical examination, also simply known as a “physical.” This is when a healthcare provider examines your body and its functioning for the earliest signs of illness or disease.
Undergoing regular physicals allows your provider to detect problems – often before symptoms even occur. Regular physicals by a trusted healthcare provider is also a great opportunity to discuss any health concerns you have. Most insurance companies understand the value of regular physicals and will cover the cost.
The physicals United Medical providers perform are extensive and customized, according to your age, gender, and specific needs. We provide annual, pre-employment, corporate, school, and sport physical exams.
Your physical exam at United Medical may include the following:
The Vaccines for Children (VFC) program is a federally funded initiative that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated due to an inability to pay.
