Wellness Physicals/Annual Exams (Work, Sports Physicals, etc.):
The physical exam is an essential part of any doctor’s visit. Surprisingly, though, there are no absolutes in a routine physical. A good doctor may be thorough or brief, but he or she will spend time listening to your concerns and providing counseling for your particular needs. Annual exams usually check your history, vital signs, general appearance, heart, lungs, head, and neck. (Source)

STD testing is quick, easy, and it usually doesn’t hurt. There’s not a single test for all STDs — each STD has its own test. Your doctor can help you figure out which tests you need. STD testing may include:
- A urine test — you just pee into a cup.
- A cheek swab — you rub the inside of your cheek with a soft swab to test for HIV.
- A blood test — your nurse or doctor takes blood from your arm or a quick finger prick.
- A physical exam — your nurse or doctor looks at your genital area to check for warts, sores, rashes, irritation, or discharge.
- Testing your sores — your nurse or doctor takes a sample of fluid from any sores or blisters you have with a swab.
- Using a swab to gently take discharge or cell samples from your penis, vagina, urethra, cervix, anus, or throat.
- You can get tested for most STDs whether or not you have any symptoms. Some STDs look and act alike, so you might be tested for a few different infections.
Weight Loss Management:
Weight loss is something with which millions of people struggle. As you know, your weight doesn’t just contribute to your physical appearance. Your weight and the amount of fat in your body can help or hurt your body by contributing to either a healthy physique or lead to medical issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Weight loss is not just about restricting calories, which is what most people try to do. Weight loss is really about correcting your nutrition, managing your stress, and for some, working with or around chronic diseases and medical conditions.
