Regular health screenings and physical exams are important for maintaining health and wellness in the workplace. Does your employer have specific procedures or policies in place regarding your health exams? Whether you need an exam to meet your employer’s requirements, or you would like to meet with a doctor for an annual exam, our team at iCare ER and Urgent Care is here to assist.
Employee Physicals: Appointments and Walk-Ins
There’s no need to wait for a few weeks before your physician can get you in for a physical. Often, employee physicals are time-sensitive, which is why you shouldn’t delay the visit to a doctor.
Our urgent care staff offers on-demand medical services for both walk-ins and appointments. You can meet with our highly-trained medical team right away, so you don’t have any delays or disruption in your work schedule.
Employee physicals include a full checkup to evaluate the health of your vitals, heart, abdomen, organs, lungs, skin, and more.
Types of Employee Physicals
We offer a variety of medical exams and services to meet your needs, including:
- General Physical
- Pre-Employment Evaluation
- Return to Work Assessment
- Department of Transportation Physical

Some pre-employment physicals must include certain tests, which can be paired with your general exam. We have the facilities and equipment to assist, ensuring that the exam meets your employer’s needs. Common requests include:
- Drug and alcohol screening
- Hearing testing
- Vision testing
- TB testing
Why is a Work-Related Exam Required?
Why does your employer require a physical exam before you can begin working? This exam is designed to check your overall health and identify possible symptoms of chronic conditions or illnesses that could interfere with your job performance.
The type of physical will vary depending on your job duties and the physical skills that will be required in the workplace.
What to Bring to an Employee Physical?
When you visit our office for an employee physical, you can do a few things to prepare for the appointment. Most employers have specific paperwork that needs to be completed, such as an Employer Authorization Form. Be sure that you have these documents in hand at the appointment so we can provide all of the information that needs to be submitted to your employer.
Additionally, we will need to verify your identity through a state or federal ID, such as a valid driver’s license. Some employers will accept ID verification through the employer-issued badge.
Bring any applicable information about your overall health, including current medications, recent medical conditions or surgeries, as well as a list of any known allergies.
