Why are routine physicals important?
During a routine physical, Dr. Marzili focuses on assessing your health and preventing problems by screening for early signs of chronic disease in teens and adults. Dr. Marzili’s goal is to identify potential problems so they can be prevented or treated before the condition worsens.
Dr. Marzili also takes advantage of annual physicals to learn more about you and the unique health challenges you face. It gives you the opportunity to ask questions about anything on your mind, from your weight to concerns about smoking or your child’s behavior.
What services are provided during a physical?
After reviewing your medical history and checking your weight and vital signs, Dr. Marzili performs a thorough physical exam. He may order lab tests or specialized screening procedures, depending on your age and the results of your exam.
