A physical exam is a preventive health measure that provides an opportunity to check in on your overall health and well-being. This quick, effective process can diagnose serious potential health problems early to prevent and significantly reduce major complications later in life, thus improving your quality of life and longevity. In addition to alerting you to potential health problems like high blood pressure and diabetes, a physical exam allows you to build a relationship with Dr. Rahaman.
During a physical exam, you also have a chance to ask questions or discuss concerns you have about your physical health.
