An annual physical performed by a primary care doctor is an important part of preventive medicine for every person.

An annual physical gives patients an overview of what's going on with their bodies. The focus is on prevention of disease by reviewing a patient's medical history and immunizations, as well as performing lab work, a physical exam and any age-appropriate tests.
