During a routine physical exam, Brand New Med discusses any health concerns you have since your last checkup. She takes all the time you need to ask questions or talk about any new symptoms you have.
For the physical part of the exam, Brand New Med takes your vital signs, checking your temperature, weight, and blood pressure. She also listens to your heart and lungs and measures your pulse.
To identify abnormalities in your internal organs, Brand New Med will press on various areas of your body, checking for lumps or indications of pain.
After a review of your medical and family history, Brand New Med may order additional tests or screenings for conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, or organ disease.
