Physicals Q & A
What is the purpose of an annual physical?
The main purpose of your annual physical is to create a health record that Dr. Olusanya can use from year to year to monitor your current condition and future needs. He conducts a comprehensive preventive screening that helps detect life-threatening diseases like cancer and diabetes long before they have a chance to develop and advance. For instance, high blood pressure and elevated blood sugar may not have any symptoms until they become serious and require more drastic measures.
Dr. Olusanya is passionate about education and helps you understand your risks and minimize them with lifestyle modifications, and possibly medications. Charter Medical Center is one of the few all-in-one clinics in the area that offers an in-house laboratory and pharmacy, so you don’t have to run around town testing and filling prescriptions.
