Routine physicals are an important part of maintaining optimal health, although in some cases, you may need a physical for school, sports, or work, too. No matter the reason, Joseph Munoz, MD, and the caring team of family practitioners at Munoz Urgent Care offer flexible same-day scheduling for all physicals. Book your comprehensive physical at this Anaheim, California, clinic by requesting an appointment online, or by calling the office.
A physical is your one-on-one time with your physician to go over all of your health concerns. Even if you don’t have any issues at the time, performing a head-to-toe exam and ordering some laboratory testing can help catch early indicators of chronic diseases. You may need a physical to:
You might even need a physical before starting a new job, or to maintain your current position. In many cases, your little one needs a physical before the new school year starts.
Dr. Munoz and his caring team sit down with you and discuss any health problems you may be experiencing. Once they get a better understanding of your overall health and family history, they are likely going to perform certain tests and exams, such as:
You might also need a routine vision or hearing check — this is more common for children. Your physical exam at Munoz Urgent Care is tailored entirely to you, so no two visits are the same.
Before your physical, it’s helpful to gather any essential paperwork you may need for school, work, or sports. If you have any additional medical records from other providers — including ER or urgent care visits — bring those to your appointment with you.
If you need to have a blood draw or urinalysis, you might need to fast for a few hours beforehand. For instance, if you have high cholesterol, the blood test Dr. Munoz could order for you may require you to avoid certain foods or liquids for a set time frame before your physical. Just ask if you need to fast when you’re booking your physical.
