Physical Exams Q & A
Why are physical exams important?
Routine physical exams are an important part of maintaining optimal health and wellness. They provide both you and Dr. Manuel-Arguelles the information needed to guide your health care. The data gathered during these visits is added to your health record and can be a powerful tool in tracking changes over time and identifying areas of concern before they become serious health problems.

Dr. Manuel-Arguelles sees herself as your partner in making the most of your life and takes the time to get to know each and every man, woman, and child in her care. Building those lasting relationships makes it easier for you to navigate a serious health problem if the need arises.
What happens during physical exams?
Your exam begins with a discussion with Dr. Manuel-Arguelles about your overall health and any changes or causes for concern you’ve noticed since your last visit. This is the time to share information and ask questions.
Next, Dr. Manuel-Arguelles completes a thorough physical examination, checking your heart and breathing function, height, weight, blood pressure, reflexes, skin condition, joint health, and more. She’ll ask questions during the exam to gather more information about your health and lifestyle.
You might have a blood draw to screen for various health issues and to get a better understanding of your cholesterol levels. Dr. Manuel-Arguelles may suggest additional screenings according to your specific needs.
