Your Doctor Exam




What Can I Expect When I Visit the Doctor?

Custom Search


A physical examination is an evaluation of the body and its functions using inspection, palpation (feeling with the hands), percussion (tapping with the fingers), and auscultation (listening). A complete health assessment also includes gathering information about a person's medical history and lifestyle, doing laboratory tests, and screening for disease.  Your doctor may prescribe medications for you or administer inoculations to prevent disease. Knowing what to expect will make the exam easier.  Don't be afraid to ask questions.  Remember, your doctor is there to help you.  Don't be embarrassed and don't be intimidated.
