What are the benefits of physical exams?

The main benefit of undergoing a physical exam is getting an assessment of your overall health and wellness. Exams allow Dr. Rastegar to detect medical problems early before they turn into something more serious.

Physical exam

Dr. Rastegar reviews your symptoms and medical history, before completing a comprehensive physical exam. She evaluates your eyes, throat, abdomen, breathing, reflexes, heartbeat, and more. She might assess your mental health by asking you a series of questions.

Diagnostic testing
