Arm yourself with the information you need to stay healthy. If we see anything of concern, we’ll alert you so you can get the treatment or make the lifestyle changes needed for a full and healthy life.

Why come in for a yearly physical exam?
A yearly health screening is an excellent way to catch disease early. Detecting them early makes treatment easier and more affordable. You’ll talk with our board-certified physician about what tests are right for you. This will depend on not only your own medical history but the medical history of your family. There are a variety of screenings you can have at AFC Urgent Care Cherrydale. They include:
Body Mass Index
The value generated by the Body Mass Index is used to check for obesity. It is the percentage of fat you have based on your height and weight.
When you have high blood cholesterol, you are at higher risk for heart disease. If you are over the age of 35, you should have your cholesterol levels checked yearly to make sure it is under control. If it isn’t, it’s much easier to manage it now then down the road.
High blood pressure has been linked to kidney disease and stroke. Reduce your risk by having this checked yearly as part of your physical exam.
Once a man reaches the age of 50, it is important to check for signs of cancer. Catching this early greatly increases a successful treatment. We will check for lung, oral, skin, prostate, and colorectal cancer.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Many common STDs can be screened for during your yearly exam. Our onsite lab means we can get results back to you quickly. Some of the STDs we test for include Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and Chlamydia.
If you fall in the following categories, we highly recommend you get tested:
- Have sex with men
- Have unprotected sex with multiple partners
- Have ever injected drugs
- Have ever paid for sex
- Have had partners in the past who are infected with HIV
- Are being treated for additional STDs
- Had a blood transfusion between 1978 and 1985
Feeling down or have little interest in your daily life on a regular basis? You may be depressed. We can screen for this very treatable illness.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
Have you smoked more than 100 cigarettes in your lifetime and are between the ages of 65 and 75? Ask one of our doctors to check you for an abdominal aortic aneurysm. This is a large or swollen blood vessel that can burst within your stomach without any warning.
Do you consistently have blood pressure readings higher than 135/80? We recommend you be tested for diabetes. This disease can cause many problems with various parts of your body. This includes your heart, feet, eyes, kidneys, and nerves.
