What should I expect during men’s health exams?

During men’s health appointments, your primary care specialist weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), and checks your pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and other vital signs.

They ask about your medical history, family medical history, medications, lifestyle habits, and symptoms you may have before completing a physical exam. Your provider examines your breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, eyes, throat, neck, and more.

You may be a candidate for blood tests, urine testing, heart-function tests, prostate cancer screening, or other diagnostic tests if you have signs of or are at risk of a medical problem. You might need vision screening, hearing screening, STD screening, or a mental health evaluation.

Your provider offers medication prescriptions or other treatments if you need them to recover from an illness or properly manage a disease. They refer out to specialists as needed.

When should I schedule men’s health appointments?

See your University Family Medicine Center, P.C. provider yearly for a wellness exam or more frequently if you have a disease requiring follow-up care. See your primary care specialist if you become ill or develop unusual symptoms that concern you.
