When you arrive at New York Specialty Clinics for a physical examination, you might complete the following:
During a vital signs check, your provider evaluates your weight, blood pressure, temperature, and pulse when you first arrive at New York Specialty Clinics.
Your specialist reviews your personal and family medical history. They ask about the medications you take, past diagnoses and treatments, prior surgeries, and any symptoms you have.
During the physical examination portion of your appointment, providers evaluate your heartbeat, breathing, reflexes, eyes, ears, throat, and more. They might also test your hearing and vision.
In women, New York Specialty Clinics providers offer a breast exam, pelvic exam to evaluate reproductive health, and a Pap test to screen for signs of cervical cancer. In men at risk for prostate cancer, your specialist might recommend a prostate exam. Children’s physical exams assess their growth, development, and overall health.
Diagnostic tests help your specialist detect or rule out specific medical problems. They might recommend you undergo allergy testing, asthma tests, nasal or throat swabs, urine tests, or blood tests, as well as an electrocardiogram (EKG), X-rays, or other imaging procedures.
After receiving the diagnostic test results, your provider might recommend you undergo treatments, including medical weight loss, diet and exercise changes, medications, dietary supplements, further diagnostic testing, physical therapy, or a minimally invasive procedure. They can also refer you to specialists as needed.
