In today’s blog, we take a look at how getting physicals on a regular basis can contribute very positively to your overall health.

Why You Should Get a Physical at Miramont Family Medicine

Somewhere along the line, people developed the idea that you only go to the doctor when you’re already sick. Can you imagine how much better life would be if your doctor were able to catch an issue before it turned into a full-blown problem?

Investing a bit of time into getting a physical on a regular basis also means that you get to develop a relationship with your doctor. At Miramont Family Medicine, we strive to treat each of our patients like family. Whether you speak to a nurse or a receptionist, our goal is to make sure that you get the care you need.

Because finding a doctor can be a challenge, we make it out priority to actually get to know you. What that means is that we’ll get to know your family history, ensuring that if there’s a problem, we catch it early and are able to provide you with a plan of attack in order to keep you feeling healthy.

What to Expect From Your Physical

Basically, we’ll give you a total checkup. From taking a look at your throat to listening to your heartbeat to checking your blood pressure to measuring your height and weight, at Miramont Family Medicine, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive physical in order to get a feel for your overall health and pinpoint things that you’re doing well and others that could use some improvement.

The important thing to keep in mind when you get a physical is that the goal is simply to provide you with information. If you’re informed, we can better discuss a plan to keep you healthy and deal with any issues that may come up.

Why Do People Avoid Physicals?

It’s fairly common knowledge that most people don’t like going to the doctor. Why is that? There could be a couple of different reasons. For many people, even though they’re not feeling well, not knowing what’s going on is better than potentially finding out something about their health that could have an impact on their life. For other people, carving time out of an already busy schedule for “routine maintenance” seems to be too much of a challenge.
