Dr. Sheibani and Dr. Broukhim provide annual physical exams for patients in and around Westwood, CA, gathering each patient's unique health information and data so he can provide the most effective, safest treatment and professional guidance for optimal health.
Your physical exam is the best way for Dr. Sheibani and Dr. Broukhim to monitor your health and to look for changes that could indicate a serious underlying medical condition. Exams include different types of tests and evaluations that can provide critical information about your heath. Year after year, Dr. Sheibani and Dr. Broukhim can compare your information from previous exams to spot changes that can help identify emerging risk factors for specific diseases. Plus, having an annual exam gives you the chance to talk to the doctor about your concerns and to get advice that can help you maintain optimal health throughout your life.
Your exam will begin with a complete health history to update existing records with any information that's developed since your last visit, including any new symptoms or health-related issues. Next, basic vital signs like weight and blood pressure will be measured and recorded, and other evaluations of your ears, sinuses, throat, eyes and reflexes may be conducted. Our doctors may also order lab tests such as blood work or urinalysis, especially if you have risk factors for certain diseases. Once the test results are back, Dr. Sheibani will make treatment recommendations to help you stay healthy.
Make sure you have a list of all your medications, including vitamins and supplements. It's also a good idea to write down any questions you may have so you don't overlook anything during your visit. Also be ready to discuss your family's health history, which can help identify potential risk factors for disease. If the doctor orders blood work or other tests before your appointment, be sure to have them done right away so the results will be ready for review during your exam.
