For many people who have health insurance, one of the greatest benefits is that they’re entitled to a free yearly physical in order to make sure everything is working the way it should. A number of those people, however, don’t take advantage of being able to take a trip to the doctor.

Perhaps we’re biased, but we think that more people should take advantage of their health insurance’s offering for a free physical. There are a number of reasons you should be doing this and we’ll go over them in today’s blog.

If you’re considering a physical, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. Our doctors would love to provide you with a comprehensive physical and provide you with some peace of mind.

If You Get a Free Physical, You Should See a Doctor

So why see a doctor if you’re feeling fine? Keep reading for five of the biggest reasons we think you should schedule an appointment for a physical at Miramont Family Medicine.

It’s Free

This is one of the best reasons to schedule a physical. If you’re given one free physical each year, you might as well take advantage of it, right?

We Can Catch Symptoms You May Not

Even if you’re feeling well in general, that doesn’t mean that there’s not a warning sign that you’re not catching. We’ll discuss your sleep patterns and take your body measurements to be able to provide you with some baselines that we’ll use moving forward.

You Can Get to Know Us

For many people, visiting the doctor is intimidating because they’re putting their trust in a person they don’t know. Therefore, when you schedule a visit for a physical, you’ll get to meet your doctor, ensuring that if something does go wrong down the line, you’ll have a line of contact with someone you know.

We’ll Discuss Your Prescriptions

During your physical, we can talk about your prescriptions, providing you with recommendations and discussing anything that currently ails you. It’s a great time to discuss any issues that may be coming up.

You Can Tell Us About Your Goals

Whether you want to lose weight or simply get healthier, we can provide you with recommendations tailored specifically for you for what kind of foods you should be eating to ideal exercises to maximize your hard work.
