Annual Physicals are essential for your overall health and well-being. We use these physicals to determine the general status of your health. During this appointment, our primary care physician will do an annual physical examination. At this appointment, you will also have the opportunity to talk about ongoing ailments or health concerns that they might be having.
Sports physicals mostly pertain to student-athletes. Arizona requires all student-athletes to complete a sports physical before they are eligible to participate in school-sanctioned sports. Some non-student athletic clubs or recreational sports may also require you to pass a sports physical before you can hit the court or field.
Non-student athletes starting a new sport or workout routine are also encouraged to come in for a sports physical. This is to make sure your body is healthy enough to take on the strain you are putting it through.
Pre-employment physicals may be required by some companies before you can start work. These exams can include the following:
With the help of a flu test, the health care provider can determine whether you have the flu and prescribe the necessary treatment earlier to lessen the symptoms. Flu tests can include a rapid flu test, influenza antigen test, RIDT, or Flu PCR.
Covid test can be done either through a viral test or an antibody test. Viral tests are used if you suspect that you currently have the Coronavirus infection. The antibody test will tell you whether you previously had the Coronavirus infection.
Even though strep throats are mostly present in children, they can occur in adults as well. Patients who are worried that their sore throat might actually be strep throat can do a rapid strep test or throat culture to be sure. The test involves swabbing the throat and running a test on the swab.
Test done on urine is called urinalysis. This type of test is used to detect and manage a wide range of disorders such as
This test involves checking if certain content of urine appears. It also checks the concentration of said content.
The glucose level in our blood (blood sugar) is measured by a blood glucose test to determine how well our body absorbs sugar. Having a too low or too high level of blood glucose is a sign of a severe condition. If you experience increase thirst, blurred vision, fatigue, sweating, hunger, trembling, you should test your blood glucose level to see if it's in the healthy range.
Fats and fatty substances are some of the primary sources of energy in our body. These include cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Through a lipid panel, your PCP can determine whether you're at risk for life-threatening illnesses like coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke.
CMP is used to assess your general health status or screen for, diagnose, and monitor various diseases or conditions such as liver disease, hypertension, diabetes, or kidney disease. This test is done on a blood sample and should be done during a routine health exam.
To determine the condition that causes abnormal (low or high) iron levels, your doctor might order a Total Iron Binding Capacity (TBIC) test. TBIC is usually performed along with a test to determine the level of iron in your blood. Both tests are performed on a small sample of blood, and it is essential that you don't eat or drink anything at least 8 hours before the test.
To determine the blood sugar level in the past 2-3 months, you can do a Hemoglobin A1c test. This is most commonly done by diabetics to see if their blood sugar level is within normal range and whether they need to adjust their diabetes therapy. Furthermore, this test is also used to diagnose diabetes.
Thyroid gland function can be evaluated through a thyroid panel. This test can also be used for diagnosing thyroid problems or monitor treatment for such disorders. A thyroid panel should be done if you're experiencing signs or symptoms of abnormal (low or high) activity of your thyroid gland or if you have a small thyroid nodule or enlarged thyroid.
All male hormones have established levels and ranges. Depending on your results, our team can develop a customized replacement or supplementation plan. Male hormone panels usually include DHEA hormone level testing, FSH or Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Androstenedione, Testosterone, Progesterone, DHT, and many others. Imbalance of one or more of these hormones can create unpleasant symptoms and require hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Like male hormone tests, a woman's test will test your levels to ensure you are in the correct hormone level range. These tests can determine the levels of Free and Total Testosterone, DHEA-S and Estradiol, Estrogen, HGH, IGF-1, SHBG, Progesterone, and Parathyroid hormones.
