How often should I get a physical exam?
Dr. Dorio and the team recommend that you have a yearly physical exam to check in on your health and screen for any potential health issues before they become a major problem.
Your annual physical takes about one hour and includes an update of your medical history and symptoms as well as screening procedures for:
- Hypertension, or high blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Heart disease
- Kidney problems
- General vision problems
- Joint pain, including arthritis
- Skin issues
- Men's and women's health concerns
Dr. Dorio is thorough and always willing to answer your questions and take time to talk with you so you don't feel rushed or overwhelmed by the process. If you need follow-up care, he explains when to come in and what to expect at your next visit.
Why would I need a follow-up visit with my doctor?
In some cases, Dr. Dorio recommends a “watch and wait" policy to determine if your symptoms improve on their own or if intervention, like prescription medication, is needed.
While you wait, he may recommend appropriate lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your symptoms, like eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking more water, or increasing your exercise.
Other follow-up appointments involve medication management. When you begin a new medication, it can take several weeks for the medication to begin working. Dr. Dorio typically schedules a follow-up appointment with you after 2-4 weeks so he can assess how the medication is working for you.
If you need a new prescription or if new symptoms develop, Dr. Dorio recommends scheduling an appointment right away.
