Many surgeries call for a pre-operative clearance exam to make sure you are healthy enough to undergo the entire process—the anesthesia, the surgery, and recovery. If you haven’t had a physical examination within the month before your surgery, you will need to undergo a pre-op clearance exam. Getting clearance from a healthcare provider will ensure that your risk of complications is significantly reduced. Pre-op clearance may also include a review of your vital signs, family history, and any chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure.
Many companies require pre-employment medical clearance before you can start your job. Our full range of occupational screenings and physicals can offer you the peace of mind that you are healthy and able to perform the essential duties of your job. We are compliant with your company’s regulatory requirements and policies, and dedicate ourselves to providing you with the best experience. Our pre-employment clearance exams include the examination of pulmonary and respiratory function, drug and alcohol screenings, a complete physical examination, vision test, and review of medical history and medications.

We will make sure you/your child are physically and mentally fit for the new year, and that there are no undiagnosed health issues that might be affected by physical activity.

We accept walk-ins for school or sports physical exams and other physical fitness exams, so visit one of our locations today! Our school and sports physical exams include lab tests, exams to check for potential health risks, review of medical history, immunizations, and medical advice. The exam typically takes less than 30 minutes and can help prevent injury or other health problems down the line.
School physicals, camp physicals, and sports physicals are relatively similar. Our care team will check your child’s weight and height, followed by a thorough physical exam to identify any medical condition that might prevent them from safely participating in sports or other activities.
Gynecological & Pap Smears
Getting a gynecological exam on a regular basis is one of the best ways to protect your health. During the exam, one of our doctors may perform a gynecological cancer screening, provide vaccinations, and even provide education about staying healthy. We will also answer any questions you may have about menstruation, fertility, reproduction, menopause, and other gynecological issues.
Depending on your unique situation, the exam may also include testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and other tests such as a breast exam (to check for lumps), pap smear (to test for cervical cancer), and pelvic exam (to examine the health of cervix and vagina). If someone in your family has a history of breast cancer or cervical cancer, you should have a breast physical exam and pap smear screening every year.
General Routine Health Maintenance
You may have heard the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and that has never been more relevant than it is today. Exposure to chemical toxins, excessive consumption of junk foods, and daily stress can lead to a host of health conditions if you’re not careful. To stay on top of your health, visit the caring team at UrgentMED for a routine health maintenance exam. Whether you need a physical, a flu shot, or help to quit smoking, we are here to help.
