A general physical exam is an important aspect of determining overall health, detecting early onset of medical conditions, and monitoring the progress of existing conditions. Many employers and some institutions require a physical exam before employment or admission.

Here at Dr. John Abroon’s medical clinic on the New York City’s Upper East Side, he routinely performs physical exams for a wide range of clients and patients.

The exam covers a wide range of factors including monitoring vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, temperature, and general appearance. This will also involve a dermatological exam, heart exam, neurological exam, lung exam, and heart exam, as well as a head and neck exam.
