Annual Physical Exams Q & A

Why are annual physical exams important?

An annual physical exam is the most effective way for Dr. Dosunmu to evaluate and monitor your overall health as you grow older. He can ensure you’re healthy and aren’t at risk for medical issues related to your:

  • Age
  • Weight
  • Family history
  • Existing health conditions

Dr. Dosunmu can also check in with you about your lifestyle habits, nutrition, and family relationships during your annual exam.

What can I expect during an annual exam?

At the start of your appointment, Dr. Dosunmu discusses any changes to your health or concerns you may have. He reviews your medical and family history to determine what preventive screenings you may need.

Dr. Dosunmu also performs a comprehensive physical examination of your ears, eyes, nose, throat, and skin. He evaluates your heart health and your lung functionality using a stethoscope and takes a measurement of your pulse.

To identify abnormalities in your internal organs, Dr. Dosunmu checks for lumps or pain in your abdomen and limbs. He also checks your lymph nodes for swelling.

Do I need bloodwork at my annual exam?

Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Dosunmu may request bloodwork to check for chronic illnesses such as diabetes or a thyroid disorder. He may also use blood tests to ensure any medications you’re taking regularly are working effectively and not damaging your organs.

At Royal Suntomed Medical Group, you have the convenience of on-site bloodwork for fast, accurate results. The staff takes a sample of your blood for further analysis in a comfortable office environment.

How do I prepare for an annual exam?

To ensure Dr. Dosunmu has all of the necessary information about your health history, you should bring along any lab reports or other medical information you have since your last appointment.

Also, bring any prescription medications you’re taking and note their dosages. This includes any supplements you take daily.

Wear comfortable clothing and follow any instructions Dr. Dosunmu provides to prepare for bloodwork, such as not eating or drinking for several hours before your appointment.
