WHAT ARE PHYSICAL EXAMS?

Physical exams are at the center of any good, annual healthcare routine. In a routine physical, doctors spend time listening to your concerns, assessing your history, and carefully examining your body using research-supported strategies to test for the onset of any adverse conditions. At Concierge Medicine of Columbus, annual physical exams are offered to all patients and their immediate family members free of any additional charges outside of the annual fee of $2,000 per individual or $3,500 per couple. Conducted by our board-certified doctors, Dr. Linda Jill Moore and Dr. Ronald Hudson, these exams are offered for Columbus, GA residents, as well as for residents of Montgomery, Birmingham, Macon, and the surrounding region.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A ROUTINE PHYSICAL?

Routine physicals consist of many components to allow your doctor to get a full picture of your health. First, Dr. Moore or Dr. Hudson will review your medical history and ask you extensive questions about any current aches, pains, or concerns. They will look over your general appearance, conduct reflex tests, and check your cognitive function. Then, they will conduct a series of tests, including examinations of heart health, lymph nodes, blood pressure, the abdominal region, and neurological function. The assessment portion may also include examination for lumps throughout the body, including the breasts or the testes. In men over 40, a prostate exam is also recommended.
