Female Doctor Physical Exam
Will a male doc leave the room for a female physical exam, scared to go get one done have sores on my vagina if he does not leave can I ask him to?
It is time: You have a medical problem that requires an examination. You need this examination to get better. You are 46 years old. It is time to be an adult and have your exam. If you think for one moment that the doctor, male or female, will have any inappropriate thoughts about your skin then you are mistaken. We see skin every single day of our lives. It is skin and it must be examined. Go to the doctor!See 2 more doctor answers
Comprehensive: Generally the sports phy will include a history and review of medications etc to ensure no contraindications to sports participation. The exam will focus on a heart, lung. Neurological and musculoskeletal exam as well as hernia check. An ekg may be done depending on sports governing body or cardiac risk factors. Finally I counsel on nutrition and injury prevention.
Annually: The exam part of an annual physical is usually not the most important part, unless you're having symptoms. However, it is important to get your blood pressure checked annually. The remainder of the "physical exam" is geared to identifying risk factors for things like diabetes or cancer, doing appropriate screening tests, and discussing how to get and stay healthy with your doctor.
Age dependent: At your age regular exam, hesrt, lungs, abdomen, head and neck, muscle strength. As needed private exam. Mainly hemoglobin, cbc, liver and kidney function.
Do doctors have to ask before touching you during a physical exam? Like looking down your pants or touching your boobs?
If you are: Going for an exam, the doctor should tell you want he or she plans to do and you have the right to refuse the exam, and the doctor should have a nurse or ma in the room when you are having an a breast and or pelvic exam.

Head-to-toe: First: vital signs. Heart rate, blood pressure, weight, height. We will also check their vision. Then a head to toe exam just like in previous exams. ENT, heart, lungs and abdomen. We look for signs for the onset of puberty including pubic hair, and testicular size. We talk to the child about maturation, general safety, activity specific safety, avoiding high risk behaviors, school and friends.
Erection: Great question! Both you and the doctor will be embarrassed! I think it's best to use common sense as to how to handle that.
Well check: A 13 yo physical includes hearing and vision screening, height and weights. It includes ensuring that vaccinations are up to date including TDAP, meningitis, HPV and hepatitis A vaccines. If these vaccines have already been given, then no additional vaccines will be needed. Blood work may be recommended depending when it was done last and physical exam findings if any.
Variable: Would ask for quote from specific provider or facility.
Physical: Depends on your age, medical history, particular concerns or symptoms. The visit is unique to you. Avoid the "check everything". Guide the doctor and the doctor will make recommendations.

In what situation do doctors perform prostate milking on a male patient? In a yearly physical exam, when health issues are diagnosed, or other reasons
No: There is no situation in which a doctor will milk the prostrate. However, the doctor may check the prostate if there is a risk of prostate cancer or enlargement. As you age your risk increases.
Sure it is: Every person with a penis knows that it can have a mind of its own at times. Babies can get erections for no reason or at diaper changes. Boys in puberty get erections on and off during the day (can be embarrassing). Men can get erections with examinations by any sort of doctor and sometimes for no reason, even without an exam. The penis has nerve connections that can make it do things on its own.See 2 more doctor answers
Neuro exam: A detailed neurological examination usually can determine that a spinal lesion is unlikely, but cannot rule out 100%.
