What happens during acute care visits?

During acute care visits with the Apollo Men’s Health team, specialists first eliminate pain that you may have. They assess your temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs, as well as your body weight and body mass index (BMI). 

Your specialist asks about your medical history, including symptoms, personal and family history of disease, and your medication regimen. 

They then complete a physical exam to assess painful or injured areas of your body and look for signs of illnesses and diseases. Specialists evaluate your ears, eyes, throat, breathing, heartbeat, and more. They also check your neck, abdomen, and reflexes.
