Annual Exams Q & A

Why are annual exams important?

The primary focus of annual exams is to evaluate your health to ensure you’re developing healthfully and are not at risk of chronic disease. Annual exams are important to:

  • Check the function of vital organs
  • Talk about family planning options
  • Counsel you about diet and exercise
  • Help you lose or maintain a healthy weight
  • Undergo sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Ensure you have all of your essential vaccinations, including the annual flu shot

Your practitioner can track changes in your health by running expanded lab tests and screenings so that if any abnormalities do arise, they can intervene early and get you started on treatment.

What happens during an annual exam?

Your annual exam at Nippon Medical Office is entirely tailored to you and your health, as well as any concerns, symptoms, or problems you might be having. Most annual exams for adults and children include several of the following tests and screenings:

  • Urinalysis
  • Blood draw
  • Overall skin check
  • Lymph nodes exam
  • Blood pressure check
  • Heart and lung evaluation
  • Vision and hearing screening
  • Neurological and reflex check
  • Growth chart evaluations for children
  • Body mass index (BMI) calculation for adults

Koyanagi or Dr. Antonio can tailor your annual exam and provide any additional screenings you might need. They can also counsel you on lifestyle changes you can make — like exercise planning — to improve your health.

How do I prepare for an annual exam?

Because annual exams are designed to be an all-inclusive evaluation of your health, it’s beneficial to do a few things to prepare. While not required, Nippon Medical Office encourages you to do the following before your annual exam:

  • Transfer over medical records from other doctors
  • Write down all of your medications and dosages
  • Make a list of questions for your provider

For some screenings like a cholesterol blood check, you’ll need to fast for a few hours beforehand. When scheduling your annual exam at Nippon Medical Office, the team can let you know if this applies to you.
