Medical history review
During a medical history review, Dr. Zaidi asks you about medications you take and reviews any medical diagnoses. He discusses the symptoms you have and past surgeries. Dr. Zaidi also answers questions you have about your health.
During a physical exam, Dr. Zaidi checks your vital signs and examines you or your child from head to toe to make sure you’re in good health. In children, he ensures they are growing and developing normally and might also check hearing and vision.
The diagnostic tests Dr. Zaidi may recommend for you, or your child depends on your symptoms and risk factors. He might recommend blood tests to detect high blood sugar or high cholesterol, a throat swab to check for strep throat, urine tests, ultrasound, or other imaging tests to diagnose certain medical conditions.
Will I require treatment?
