Complete Physical Examination

We have dedicated appointment slots for complete physical examination. These appointments are double routine appointments. If you feel you need one of these assessments, then please phone in for appointment. Our online appointment system will only give you single appointment.

Our complete physical examination is where we offer health screening. Screening tests may help find diseases or conditions early when they are easier to treat. These are some of the conditions that we commonly screen for:

  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer (women)
  • Prostate cancer (men)
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol

Frequency of screening is not the same for everyone. How often a person needs screening depends on several factors, like age, general health, and findings from previous assessment.

As part of the complete physical, we offer Pap smear. In line with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) we will recommend that women have their first Pap smear by age 21 and subsequent Pap smears should be done every 2 years up to the age of 30 years when rescreening could be done every 3 years.

This is a summary of the ACOG revised recommendations with regards to cervical cancer screening:

  • Women from ages 21 to 30 be screened every two years instead of annually, using either the standard Pap or liquid-based cytology.
  • Women age 30 and older who have had three consecutive negative cervical cytology test results may be screened once every three years with either the Pap or liquid-based cytology.
  • Women with certain risk factors may need more frequent screening, including those who have HIV, are immunosuppressed, were exposed to diethylstilbestrol (DES) in utero, and have been treated for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 2, CIN 3, or cervical cancer.
