 4 months ago       116 Views

A physical exam, or a physical, is a routine test wherein a healthcare professional inspects, feels, or listens to different parts a person's body. Other names for a physical include a complete physical exam, a routine physical, and a checkup.

Healthcare professionals typically carry out a physical exam in their office or in a dedicated room in a medical clinic or hospital.

It is important for the doctor or nurse to make sure that a person feels comfortable during a physical exam. The American Medical Association require clinics to provide a chaperone on request and to allow people to bring a friend or relative into the examination room with them.
