Recharge Clinic offers primary care for patients. This includes school and employment physicals. These physicals are performed for many reasons but mostly to assess general health. A physical examination helps Dr. Tieche and his team to determine the general status of your health. The exam also gives you a chance to talk to them about any ongoing pain or symptoms that you’re experiencing or any other health concerns that you might have. A physical examination is recommended at least once a year, especially in people over the age of 50. These exams are used to check for possible diseases so they can be treated early, identify any issues that may become medical concerns in the future, update necessary immunizations, ensure that you are maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, and build a relationship with Dr. Tieche and the Recharge team.
For younger patients, who are still in school, physicals are sometimes required to enter school or play sports. Recharge Clinic offers this to young patients too. These appointments do not require a lot of time. In this appointment we will check eyesight, reflexes, respiration, cardiac activity and more. Parents can be present and Dr. Tieche or one of his providers will be able to fill out the required paperwork and sign for completion. Be sure to communicate with Dr. Tieche and his team if you have any concerns throughout the exam. While you can always contact us after as needed, your physical examination is your private time set up to ask questions about anything health-related. If you don’t understand any test that we are performing, don’t hesitate to ask questions.
