Neeraj Tripathy, MD is an internal medicine doctor who provides caring service to the Ridley Park, PA, Springfield, PA, and Philadelphia, PA community. Dr. Neeraj Tripathy offers annual physicals to adults and children. He has been in practice for over 20 years.
A physical examination is a routine test your doctor performs to check your overall health and determine the general status of your health. Adults should have an annual physical every year. It is a good way to evaluate what your health goals are for the coming 12 months and to track the progress of your current health goals. An annual physical helps you and Dr. Tripathy address changes in your health, even those that are subtle.
Dr. Neeraj Tripathy performs annual physicals to track patients' health status. The annual physical is one important way that your doctor can check on your progress. This is also a good time for each patient to become more involved with their individual progress. For example, if your goal is to lose 25 pounds, then you can track your weight and receive a more comprehensive response to body-fat-muscle ratios. Another example would be if you quit smoking and wanted to evaluate your improved lung performance. An annual physical is a time for you and Dr. Tripathy to focus on your health and decide what options are available for you to improve your well-being.
Dr. Neeraj Tripathy does employment physicals. In fact, he often sees people who want to apply for a job that requires a physical as a pre-test for employment. Not all employers accept physicals from outside doctors. For that reason, it is often wise to see what your overall health is before applying for jobs requiring a physical. In addition to adult physicals, Dr. Neeraj Tripathy does school physicals and physicals for both child and adult athletes.
