Board Certified Internist Concierge in Juno Beach and Jupiter Area – Yael Vidal MD
Vidal Concierge performs the annual physical examination for each enrolled patient. The examination checks the vital signs, such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, temperature, weight and height, and other signs. Dr. Yael Vidal may inquire about the patient’s medical history and about any recent changes to it; such as smoking, alcohol use, drug use, diet, and exercise. Yael Vidal MD also inquires about any medical issues or concerns that the patient has; and may listen to the patient’s heart via a stethoscope, to detect irregular heartbeat or a heart murmur which may indicate a possible heart disease or other medical condition. Throat and tonsils are also typically examined in a yearly physical examination, and other body organs are sometimes examined. Typically, the annual medical exam at Vidal Medical Concierge may further include standard laboratory tests, such as a complete blood count, a chemistry panel, a urinalysis, and sometimes also blood sugar levels. A lipid panel or a cholesterol test may also be performed at the concierge practice of Dr. Vidal, if relevant to the patient, as it is recommended every several years, or if otherwise needed, as abdominal cholesterol levels may indicate an increased risk for stroke or heart attack.
