General Medical Exam

For an administrative physical, your provider will conduct a detailed review of your family’s medical history, any medicines taken, allergies, and current health status. They can review your immunization records to help ensure they are up to date. Administrative physicals may be necessary for various purposes, such as:

  • Adoption
  • Marriage
  • Driver’s license
  • Admission to a professional or trade school
  • Insurance certification

Administrative physicals include a general exam, immunization review, and the completion of the clinical sections of the documents that must be filled out as part of a required physical examination. The specific requirements regarding what exams and tests can vary according to the particular organization, institution, or employer. Some elements of your examination may include:

  • Review of you and your family’s medical history
  • Information regarding supplements, or medications you take
  • General physical evaluation to check the ears, nose, throat, heart, lungs, and abdomen
  • Vision test
  • Checks of blood pressure
  • Measurement of height and weight

After the evaluation, your provider will complete any medical forms as applicable to your particular situation. They may direct you to another health care setting if you have one of the following requirements, such as pre-employment screenings other than DOT, including:

  • Firefighter
  • Law enforcement
  • Military personnel

Please note that blood tests can be a part of the general medical exam service. Your provider can administer any extra testing if the medical documentation specifies as such, for an additional fee.

College Physicals

Some colleges and universities require students to have a physical examination before they can start attending classes. Dragonfly Health providers are available for students to complete the paperwork needed for their registration. For a college physical, your practitioner will review your medical history and immunizations and perform a physical exam.

Bring any required documents, including a completed health and immunization history. Please note that your provider can verify vaccinations given at our facility or with proper documentation of immunizations administered by another health care provider. College and administrative physicals differ from annual wellness physicals. Instead of a wide-ranging assessment of your general health, these special-purpose exams are designed to confirm that your health is sufficient to participate in specific activities. An administrative or college physical exam is not intended to replace a comprehensive annual wellness exam.

Preparing for your Session

Parents are reminded to fill out the parents’ sections of all the necessary forms before the visit. Doing so will help to simplify and expedite the physical exam process for you. Please collect the following medical information to bring to the examination:

  • All documentation as per the respective organization’s requirements
  • Relevant health and medical history, including any allergies, current medications, and existing medical conditions
  • Immunization history and records
  • Primary care provider’s name and contact info


While specific requirements vary, the physical exam session will provide you with an opportunity to discuss important healthcare matters with your provider. They can help you to be informed about your health.
