Why do I need an annual physical?

An annual physical exam gives Dr. Pabis the opportunity to assess your overall health and track any changes throughout your life.

During a physical, Dr. Pabis discusses your medical and family history to determine if you need routine health screenings for conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. He also performs physical exams to identify potential health issues in their earliest stages.

If you’re taking any medications regularly, Dr. Pabis can review the type and dosages during your annual physical to ensure they are working effectively for your specific health needs.

Dr. Pabis also provides routine health screenings for women during annual physicals, such as pelvic exams and Pap smears. He can also administer routine STD screenings for men and women to protect their reproductive health.

What preventive services are available?

In addition to treating acute illnesses, such as colds, and managing chronic conditions, like diabetes, Dr. Pabis is especially skilled in disease prevention. Through routine health checks, Dr. Pabis can perform health screenings and provide immunizations to prevent patients from contracting contagious diseases, including influenza and pneumonia.

If you take medications or have existing health issues, Dr. Pabis can perform routine blood work to check the effectiveness of your medications, evaluate your hormone levels, and determine if you’re at risk for developing high cholesterol, diabetes, or heart disease.
