Physicals Q & A

What are physicals, and why are they important?

Physicals are thorough, noninvasive medical exams that assess your overall health and well-being. They typically involve reviewing your medical history, performing a thorough physical examination, and conducting various tests and health screenings.

Routine physicals are important because they can help identify underlying health issues or risks before they become more serious and when they’re still treatable. 

They also provide an opportunity to discuss any medical concerns with your health care provider and receive guidance on how to maintain or improve your health. Many people must complete a physical for employment, school, or sports participation.


Are there different types of physicals?

Aloha Xpress Medical performs many different specialized physicals for personal knowledge, commercial driver's license (CDL) renewals, preparticipation exams, and more. These include:

Annual physical

An annual physical is a head-to-toe exam your provider typically performs once a year to evaluate any changes to your health and detect medical concerns.


DOT physical 

Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals ensure commercial drivers meet specific physical and mental health standards to operate a commercial motor vehicle.


School physical

Nevada school districts require most children under age 18 to undergo routine physicals to make sure they’re physically and mentally capable of participating in school activities.


What are the most common tests performed during physicals?

The tests your provider at Aloha Xpress Medical performs depend on your age, sex, and medical history. Common tests the team performs include:

  • Blood pressure check
  • Cholesterol test
  • Blood glucose (sugar) test
  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Urinalysis
  • Body mass index (BMI) calculation
  • Vision and hearing tests
  • Immunizations 
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) test
  • Thyroid function test 

Your provider may recommend additional tests based on your individual health needs and concerns.


Do I need to bring anything to my physical?

Before your physical, make sure to gather any paperwork you need, particularly if you’re visiting for a DOT, school, or sports exam. Come prepared with a list of medications you’re taking and any updates to your medical history that aren’t already on file. To make the most of your appointment, write down a list of any questions or concerns you have.
