What happens during an internal medicine appointment?

When you arrive at Seby Medical Center for an internal medicine appointment, a friendly clinician greets you. They assess your body mass index (BMI), pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and other health measures.

Your internal medicine specialist reviews your symptoms, medical history, and medications you take. They perform a physical exam to evaluate your overall health and look for signs of disease. In women, providers offer an annual pelvic exam and Pap smear to screen for signs of cervical cancer. They can complete a prostate exam in men when necessary. 

Depending on your chief complaint, the Seby Medical Center team might recommend you undergo a nasal or throat swab, urine test, blood test, heart function test, or other type of testing. In some cases, your specialist may suggest X-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, or another imaging procedure.
