What Happens During a Work-Related Physical Exam?

During a work-related physical exam, a Gateway Urgent Care provider will check your overall health and look for possible symptoms of illness or chronic conditions that may keep you from performing the duties of your job. The tests your provider recommends will depend on the type of physical examination being conducted. You’ll review your medical health history and job information with your Gateway Urgent Care provider, if applicable.

Our provider will usually check:

  • Vital signs – such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature.
  • Your heart – to detect possible signs of heart disease.
  • Your lungs – to listen for any wheezing or difficulty breathing.
  • Your abdomen – to check on the health of your liver, bowels, and other organs.
  • Your skin – skin problems can be signs and symptoms of other underlying illnesses.

How to Prepare for a Work-Related Physical

Before you visit your local Gateway Urgent Care for a work-related physical or screening, please gather any paperwork from your employer as well as any medical information to bring to your visit so our providers can better understand your medical history, such as:

  • Any paperwork provided by your employer.
  • Valid driver's license, state/federal/local issued ID, or employer issued badge.
  • List of current medications.
  • List of past surgeries and medical conditions.
  • List of any allergies.
