Re: Blood work and physical?
blood pressure, listening to heart and lungs. and unless you openly object...they will most likely look at your privates, and possible rectal exam....if you do not want this done....you have to tell the doctor. they ask you questions about your health, and if there are reasons for concern in a certain area, he will order blood tests to check for those certain things. otherwise, they do routine blood work....for cholesterol, blood count, liver function, calcium, potassium, hemoglobin, kidney functions, blood sugar. that is what my doctor normally checks for in "routine" physicals.
