3 Reasons to See Your Primary Care Physicians for an Exam Today

Preventative Maintenance

You take your car to the mechanic on a regular basis to have the oil changed, right? (This is your reminder that if you’re overdue, now is the time to pop in for an oil change.) It’s the same idea here with your physical. To continue on with the car analogy, you don’t want to deal with your car’s issues after you forget to change the oil and the engine explodes–it’s going to take even more time, money, and headaches to get it taken care of. It’s the same thing with your body. Regular checkups ensure that we can keep track of what’s going on and make any adjustments in order to fine tune things to make sure that everything is in order.

Get to Know Your Doctor

Another benefit of seeing your primary care physician on a regular basis is that working with the same person each time you come in ensures that you have a person who can get to know you and keep track of your blood pressure, weight, or anything else that needs an eye kept on it. To put it simply, it’s never a bad idea to have a doctor who knows about everything from family history to personal history. Luckily for you, the doctors at Medics USA love serving patients to the best of our ability. Speaking of which…

We Can Do It All

No matter what your reason for seeing us is, we’ll take great care of you. In the event that you need to see a specialist, we can provide you with our recommendations that are based on knowing the doctors who are best in the business. In short, you can trust that no matter the situation, you’re in good hands at Medics USA. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond for every single patient that steps through our doors and your visit is no exception. Taking great care of people is just what we do.

Okay, So How Often Should I See Someone at Medics USA?

One of the questions we get asked the most is about how often the average person should get a physical. It’s a great question without a simple answer. To be perfectly honest, it depends on a number of factors. A great starting point is that if you’re in your 30s, every three years or so should do the trick. If you’re over 50, seeing a doctor every year is probably not a bad idea.

As we mentioned above, however, these numbers are going to be vastly different for different people. It depends on things like your family history, your personal history, and what, if anything, we discovered last time you stopped in for a visit.

Of course we’d be happy to discuss these things with you when you come in for a visit. Our goal is to make sure that you get the best care possible, answering any and all questions you might have for us–and that includes when you should come back and see us again. At Medics USA, we’re happy to provide our patients with the best medical care in Falls Church.
