What to Expect at Your Physical Exam

Seeing your physician for a routine exam shouldn’t be intimidating. At Bella Terra Primary Care in Huntington Beach, physical exams are made to be as comfortable and convenient as possible. We make every effort to put you at ease throughout your visit from the moment you walk in the door. If you’re a new patient, plan to arrive 15 minutes early to allow time for completing your new patient registration.

Please bring the following items to your appointment:

  • Photo ID
  • Health insurance card or forms
  • A list of any medications you’re currently taking
  • Referral forms and/or medical imaging (x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, etc.), if applicable

Once you meet with Dr. Karki, she’ll ask about your medical history, including past conditions, current health concerns, and general lifestyle questions. You’ll be given the opportunity to ask about any particular health concerns or related medical needs you may have. Your vital signs (pulse, temperature, blood pressure, etc.) will be taken as well.

Next, it’s time to start the physical exam, which may include:

  • Listening with a stethoscope to check the heart and lungs
  • Manual examinations of the neck, throat, and abdomen
  • Tests for reflexes, muscle strength, and balance
  • If necessary, blood or urine samples to check for cholesterol, blood sugar, etc.

Dr. Karki will use the information from the physical exam to assess your health and decide if any follow-up treatments or preventative care are necessary. Select healthcare services, such as vaccinations or EKGs, are conveniently offered right at Bella Terra Primary Care.
