Annual physical exams are often required for school age children, but they can be an important diagnostic tool for adults. It is easy to take our health for granted and avoid making an appointment for an annual check-up as we get older, but taking time each year to focus on yourself and your health can be useful for you and your doctor in creating a baseline for any health exams you may need in the future, as well as for spotting problems before they become more serious. At Joshua Medical Center, our physicians are proud to offer physical exams, sports physicals, school physicals, and immigration physicals for patients in Omaha, NE, and all surrounding areas.
As adults, many of us tend to only call our family doctors after we’ve become sick. We visit our local clinic when we have the flu or bronchitis, or if we need a prescription for an infection. But when you only see a doctor for a specific medical issue, it can often be difficult for them to notice if there are other health problems that should be monitored. Regular screenings and physical exams can help discover symptoms of diabetes, cardiac issues, blood pressure problems, and even cancer. When it comes to issues like these, early detection can make a big difference in the treatment options you might have.
We are also proud to offer comprehensive school and sports exams for children. Our primary care doctors have the experience you want in someone who is treating your child. We can offer guidance and support as your child ages and their needs change, as well as provide you with peace of mind before your child participates in school sports. Our doctors and medical staff know that each of our patients is different, and no one size fits all approach to healthcare exists. When you come to our walk-in clinic for a physical exam, we want you to feel comfortable so that you can discuss any concerns you may have honestly with your doctor. Our entire staff is dedicated to creating a warm and welcoming office environment, and treating each patient with the kindness, compassion, and respect they deserve.
At Joshua Medical Center, our expert physicians and staff are committed to providing exceptional medical care to each of our patients. If you are interested in receiving a physical exam in or around Omaha, NE, please call us today, or simply walk in to see a doctor when it best suits your schedule.
