A Periodic Physical Exam Can Help You Stay Healthy in Orlando, FL

Physical Exam Orlando FL

An important component of a preventive health care plan, a routine physical exam focuses on keeping you well. Rather than waiting until you have a medical problem, you meet your doctor regularly to confirm that you’re still in good health or catch any health-related issues early. Most people have an annual physical exam, which is performed during a separate wellness visit that is unrelated to a specific illness or injury.

What Is Included in a Physical Exam?

The goal of a wellness visit is to provide you and your doctor with an update on your overall health. After discussing any changes to your personal and family medical history, your doctor will check your:

  • Vital signs, including your body weight, pulse rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and breathing rate
  • Head, eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Gastrointestinal system
  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Mental awareness, motor function, balance, and reflexes
  • Skin and lymph nodes
  • Immunization record
  • Medications

Your doctor may also order one or more lab tests, such as a urinalysis or blood test, and ask about your physical activity, diet, stress level, tobacco use, and alcohol consumption. The discussion will center on ways to improve your health through positive lifestyle changes and healthy decision-making. Be honest—your doctor will not judge you, and clear communication will help you work together toward the best possible outcome.

“My husband and I are big fans of Dr. Toni Muzzonigro and ODC. She takes great time and care in both listening to us and explaining medical issues. We didn’t get this when we were part of an HMO or PPO healthcare network. For those rare emergencies, I can reach her after hours and receive an immediate response. We also like that she is not totally westernized in her viewpoints and will give holistic advice. Erin and the staff are amazing. They are warm and welcoming. You don’t feel like a number when you visit ODC. Love them!”

“There is no better care available than with Optimum Direct Care (ODC). We have been with Dr. Muzzi and Erin for several years now. The attention to detail, quick response and holistic approach to your health is unrivaled. They provide peace of mind for always knowing you can reach your doctor anytime. There is no waiting, no repeating who you are and your history over and over. No making multiple calls to the doctors office for requesting your prescription refills or holding your breath to be able to make an appointment for urgent care. We love the direct care model as we were part of another similar practice in the area before coming to Dr Muzzi. However they charged not only premium prices for monthly membership but in addition a top dollar price for every visit. With ODC it is just your monthly membership fee. Our family highly recommends Dr. Muzzi and ODC. They feel like our extended family. ”
