What are physicals?

Physicals are medical examinations the physicians at Mableton Urgent Care complete for men, women, and children. Examples of the types of physicals they offer include:

  • US Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals
  • Work physicals
  • School physicals
  • Sports physicals

A DOT physical is required for you to legally operate a commercial motor vehicle. Work physicals are a requirement of some employers to ensure you’re healthy enough to safely complete job duties. 

School and sports physicals might be necessary for your child to attend school or participate in school sports.

What should I expect during a physical?

Physicals at Mableton Urgent Care consist of several components, including:

Medical history review

During each physical exam, your doctor reviews your medical history. They ask you about medications you take, chronic diseases you have, past surgeries, and any symptoms you suffer from.

Physical exam

During a physical, your doctor examines you. They check your weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They examine your breathing, heart rate, eyes, ears, throat, and reflexes. During a DOT physical, they may also test your hearing and vision.

Drug testing

During work, DOT, or sports physicals, a drug test might be required. If so, your doctor uses a urine sample to complete the test.

Diagnostic tests

Diagnostic tests help your doctor rule out or confirm certain medical conditions. For example, they might complete blood glucose tests to check for diabetes, lab or imaging tests, heart function tests, or asthma and allergy testing.

Vaccine administration

If you or your child require specific vaccines to attend school or work at a job, the urgent care team at Mableton Urgent Care offers vaccinations that meet your needs.

What happens after my physical?

If you pass the physical exam and your doctor determines you’re healthy enough to go to school, start a new job, play sports, or drive a commercial motor vehicle, they fill out the appropriate paperwork. 

If you require treatment for a chronic disease, your practitioner discusses treatment options with you.

When you’re due for a physical and desire premium medical care with convenient hours and walk-in options, schedule an appointment at Mableton Urgent Care over the phone or online, or simply walk in.
