Physicals Q&A

What are physicals?

Physicals at Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians are medical examinations that evaluate your overall health and wellness. You might require a physical for your job, school, sports, or general health reasons. Even if you don’t need a physical for work or school, it’s a good idea to schedule one yearly to screen for potential health problems before they cause complications.

What are the benefits of physicals?

The main benefit of undergoing physicals is having peace of mind knowing you’re healthy enough to safely complete job duties or attend school events and sports activities. Early detection of an injury, heart problem, or another medical issue helps you avoid severe, even life-threatening, medical problems. 

The Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians team has many years of experience completing physicals for entire families, and they are highly skilled.

What should I bring with me to a physical?

When you arrive at a physical, be prepared to discuss your health history and have a list of your medications. Bring a picture identification (ID), a form of payment, and an insurance card if you have insurance.

What should I expect during physicals?

During physicals at Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians, friendly specialists greet. They weigh you, assess your height and body mass index (BMI), and check your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. 

Medical exam

During a physical exam, your family medicine specialist examines your ears, eyes, throat, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, and more to look for signs of medical problems.

Diagnostic testing

You might be a candidate for a urine test, blood tests, heart or lung function testing, imaging procedures, or additional diagnostic tests to detect or rule out specific medical conditions.


If you need vaccinations for your job or school, medications, or other treatments, your Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians specialist tailors a plan based on your unique needs.


After physicals, your primary care specialist fills out any required paperwork to fulfill job or school requirements. They give you a copy for your records.

How often do I need physicals?
