Village Health Partners in Plano, TX offers year-round annual physicals for individuals of all ages and every stage of life. Unique physicals are created for men, women, and children. In addition, specialized programs have been developed for our area senior citizens. Because of an increased risk of health issues related to aging, an annual physical is one aspect that should not be overlooked for those over the age of 65. According to the American Medical Association, there are certain procedures and guidelines adults and seniors should be monitored for. The practitioners at Village Health Partners work with seniors everyday to ensure that they stay healthy, active, and pain-free.
What is Included?
Adult men and women will have what is called a "well-check" about once a year. There are specific tests that are given during these exams that are unique for a man or a woman. Once an individual ages and is classified as a senior citizen, these physical exams will vary depending on the patient. There are a variety of tests that can be included in a senior’s annual physical. The routine exams include blood work, a test for blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as a height and weight check-up. Blood work will help determine if the patient’s blood counts are stable and normal. If this blood analysis comes back abnormal it could represent a medical condition. Blood tests also helps determine glucose counts, and in some cases, a thyroid check. In addition, high or low blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. can be identified so that it can be monitored with either medication and/or a change in diet. To ensure the lungs are healthy, it is often recommended to have a chest X-ray once a year, typically during the annual physical.
Annual Physical Adults Reviews
"Great doctor! My physicals are covered, but I think I paid about 90.00 for an illness visit. I have been seeing Dr. Gothard for some time, and he has become quite popular. Since there are so many people trying to get in to see him, your appointments usually run late. Office staff is great, but there have been a few exceptions. This can happen anywhere, though."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 20, 2011
"Dr. Kibel is very kind, professional and caring. She makes you feel at ease and safe under her care. I'm not one that likes seeing the Dr and use to avoid it at all cost. Now I find that not only do I come when ill, I also follow through with preventative care(physicals etc). Any one who is lucky enough to see Dr. Kibel once will know instantly that they have found the perfect physician for life. She is awesome!!! and She truly cares."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 07, 2013
"My first visit with Dr. Lester, as a new patient, was wonderful and more than I had anticipated for an annual physical visit. I appreciate her holistic approach to medicine and her desire for her patients to be completely well; mind, body and spirit. She is patient, intuitive and a great listener. I think I have finally found a PCP that I will stick with."- Anonymous / ZocDoc / Jul 04, 2015
"I visited VHP for this first time this week for an annual physical and to get health form signed to attend Boy Scout Camp with my son. It was a great experience and I highly recommend them. Very efficient service and I really liked Dr. McAuliff's bedside manner."- D.C. / Google / Jun 11, 2016
"The best doctor around town - I have been seeing Dr. Moon for the past 15 years now and he is simply the best. I see him for everything, from a cold to my anxiety, cholesterol and annual physical checkup. He is so thoroughly and has the best bedside manner. He takes the time to listen to you and your concerns. I never feel rushed in his office."- Anonymous / Vitals / Dec 13, 2017
Depending on the individual patient case, additional tests may be ordered during the routine physical annual exam. This may include a colonoscopy to check for colon cancer in both men and women, as well as a PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood test to detect prostate cancer in men. Women should plan to have their annual mammogram to help detect breast cancer, as well as a pelvic exam and pap smear about once every 3-4 years.
