Physicals for Everyone in Sanford, FL

Sanford, Florida’s Lake Family Medicine & Imaging performs physicals on our patients for many different reasons. Above all, everyone should know that they do not need to be sick to get a physical. A physical is essentially a screening of a patient’s overall health and wellness. Most physicals performed are on perfectly healthy individuals. Often, a physical is a requirement before going to school, joining an athletic team, or as a part of employment. Dr. Kandavanam even does pilot certification physicals. Even when an organization does not require them, periodic physicals are recommended for everyone. Our physicians can detect slight changes in your health to identify early or onsetting disorders. Then, together, we can take action to treat them.

What to Expect During One of Our Physicals

During a physical, Lake Family Medicine & Imaging will go through a process of measuring and assessing several aspects of your health. You can expect a team member to record general information about your physiology at first, measuring your height, weight, blood pressure, and oxygenation levels. When you meet with the doctor, you will discuss your medical background and current lifestyle. Your doctor wants to get to know you, which includes understanding your habits and history as much as possible. After the exam, your doctor will leave you with a personally designed list of wellness recommendations. Before that, the doctor will move to a detailed physical examination which involves:

  • Listening to your heart and lungs
  • Checking your eyes, nose, ears, and throat
  • Testing your balance, strength, and reflexes
  • Any other type of assessment deemed necessary
