A physical exam can be general or specific to a particular problem. Your primary care physician conducts an overall physical exam at least once annually; this may be more frequent if specific health issues are being managed. Physical exams can be required annually by your place of work or school. A cardiologist's examination, on the other hand, may focus on heart-related health markers, some of which are included in a general physical.
