What Are Physicals?
Many employers and schools in Rockwall, Garland, Forney, Rowlett, Royse City, and surrounding Texas communities require physicals before starting. Physicals can help an employer determine if an employee is fit enough to do the required job. For schools, it shows that students are in good enough health to participate in physical activities. This routine exam, which can be performed at Rockwall Rapid Care, usually includes an overall checkup on an individual's health. Physicals are performed in one of our private treatment rooms, and we utilize the latest technology to give you the most accurate results possible. If you or your child are in need of an employee or school physical before starting a new job or school year, contact Dr. William Fieldsmith in Rockwall, TX.

Do I need to prepare before a physical examination?
Usually, no special preparation is needed. But you might want to bring a list of any medications you take and jot down any health concerns you'd like to discuss. For certain tests, Dr. Fieldsmith might give you specific instructions.
Are physical examinations for school, work, or sports covered by insurance?
In many cases, yes. Preventative care, which often includes physical examinations, is typically covered by insurance plans. However, it can depend on your specific plan and the type of physical required, so it's always a good idea to check with your insurance provider.
Can I still pass a physical if I have a chronic or preexisting condition?
Yes, having a chronic condition doesn't automatically mean you'll "fail" a physical examination. The goal of the physical is to ensure you can safely carry out specific tasks or activities. Your healthcare provider will take your overall health and management of your chronic condition into account.
