Thing You Should Expect from Our Physical Examination

The doctors will take measurements of your height and weight

A sudden change in your weight and sometimes height is a good indicator of changes in your health. Generally speaking, overweightedness is a clear indication of an underlining sickness, especially if you were not overweight before.

The doctors will check your vital signs

This includes taking the readings of your blood pressure, heart rate, sugar level etc. These tests are carried out majorly to check for heart diseases.

The doctors will review your personal health history

This is a one-on-one conversation with your doctors. During this time, they will try to figure out your susceptibility to certain diseases based on your health history, and the information you provide them at that point. What you want to make sure you do at this point is being very open to them. You cannot afford to keep any information away from them.
