Primary Care Q & A
Do I really need an annual physical if I'm not sick?
Yes, and in fact, the best time to schedule your annual physical is when you're feeling fine. To be as effective as possible in their role, your primary care physician needs to establish a healthy baseline for you. Knowing your normal state of health helps your physician identify changes early and respond to them quickly.
Of course, Downtown Medical Group is also here for you when you’re sick, injured, or have any urgent care medical needs. An annual physical exam helps your primary care physician better understand exactly how illness and injury affect your body, which means they can treat you as effectively as possible.
