An annual baseline physical examination is the foundation of your health maintenance program at OneMD. Your doctor will conduct and coordinate a comprehensive evaluation of your current health and any previous health problems you may have had. In order to determine any future risk factors due to heredity, stress, or lifestyle, he will also ask you about your family, career and social history. Upon completion of the baseline examination, you and your doctor will develop your personal LifePlan to maximize your health and enjoyment of life, now and in the future.
The chart below details the numerous tests and diagnostic studies, which are included in your baseline comprehensive exam. This is followed by a description of additional tests, and health management programs, that may be recommended after your doctor reviews the baseline exam results.
