What to Expect from a physical exam
Physical exams measure and record weight and blood pressure. Dr. Terzian will also listen to your heart and lungs and examine your ears, nose, and throat. In some cases, he will also test your hearing and check your vision. Other standard checks conducted during a physical exam include:
- Checking for any signs of abdominal tenderness
- Looking at posture, joint flexibility, spinal alignment, and mobility
- Testing neurological functions, such as reflexes, coordination, and strength
- Evaluating and discussing your medical history and chronic conditions
- Reviewing your intake of medications
In some cases, your physical exam may also include the following:
- Lab work for urinalysis, hemoglobin count, and cholesterol
- Diagnostic tests, such as x-rays or electrocardiograms (EKG)
- Screenings for cancer, such as a colonoscopy or a mammogram
- A referral to a specialist for certain conditions or symptoms
Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised with my visit. I don't know what I expected but the Doctor was very thorough and asked many questions, which I loved. He did seem concerned and wanted to cover all my concerns. The front desk staff was ok. Overall I had a great experience.
Great provider. Listens to all concerns and orders necessary tests. Always punctual. And has a great bedside manner. Have been their patient for the past five years. Highly recommend.
Dr. John has been my doctor for four plus years and he always provides the best care for whatever is it that I need. The visits are extremely accommodating and the in person appointments are always efficient and quick. Very clean and spacious office as well. The staff are always welcoming. Thank you so much for all that you do for me!!
He explained to my husband and myself what we were facing. Also, his personality and bedside manner was superb. Not worried about this procedure at this time. Just waiting to have it scheduled. Office staff up front were caring and polite. Just be glad when all is done and over.
Dr John has been my Cardiologist for many years. He never acts hurried to move me along. The care I have gotten is exceptional!
