Preventive Physicals Santa Monica, CA

Your annual physical examination plays an important part in keeping you healthy and circumventing disease. Potential health problems can be identified during your checkup. Early detection of health issues provides the opportunity for intervention before the problem develops into a serious health concern. Not only does it save you time and money, it also helps you to live a healthier life.

Your Comprehensive Preventive Medical Evaluation

During your annual physical, your doctor will check your past medical, social and family history. While it may seem unnecessary to go over this every year, it prevents mistakes and new information may be added. You will also receive a complete physical exam. At this time, your body’s systems will also be reviewed to make sure everything is functioning as it should.

Your doctor will review your immunization record and medications. Be sure to let him know if you are taking any supplements. Over-the-counter medications and some supplements can interfere with prescribed medication. This is why it is important that your doctor is made aware of everything you are taking.

This is also the time when you can bring up any questions you may have. Dr. Michael is here to help with all your health concerns. He can provide guidance, assistance and/or resources to help. He may also use this time to advise you on steps you can take to improve or maintain your health status.


Screenings can provide helpful information about the health of some organs or systems. For example, blood tests can show if you are pre-diabetic. If you are, Dr. Michael can give you information on how to change your habits so you do not get diabetes. If your past medical history indicates that you have been slowly putting on a few pounds every year, he can show you what you can do to get your weight in check and prevent you from becoming obese.

Your preventive physical is not really about treating problems. It is about identifying areas that may need extra focus and preventing disease from developing. Dr. Brent J. Michael and his staff are here to help you and your family members maintain your best level of health. Contact us today to schedule preventive physicals for your family.

Dr. Michael is a brilliant, compassionate doctor who listens and cares for his patient. I have never experienced this quality of medical care anywhere. The staff was very accommodating and made me feel very comfortable. He is the best family physician that we have ever had.

Greg Kove

Dr. Michael is not your average doctor. I feel fortunate to have enjoyed Dr. Michael as my primary GP for over 6 years and have found him to be extremely trustworthy, personable, knowledgeable, honest, thorough, compassionate and non-judgmental. He takes the time to talk to you and to listen to all of your concerns. Dr. Michael is someone you can talk with and he really cares about each one of his patients. He listens and provides suggestions. A patient couldn't ask for a more caring physician than Dr. Michael. The entire office staff is extremely friendly, personable and accommodating. Dr. Michael is a great doctor, mentor and friend. I'm glad I have him as my primary care provider! I am forever grateful to Dr. Michael and strongly recommend him to anyone who desires personalized care.

Dr. Michael takes time to listen, diagnose, and prescribe the best treatment possible. He made me feel comfortable talking to him about all of my health concerns and I left my appointment with answers to all of my questions. Dr Michael really understood what I was feeling both emotionally and physically and communicated that understanding to me.

Jose Hernandez

Dr. Michaels is easy to talk to, down-to-earth as well as smart and competent. It feels more like you’re getting good advice from a personal friend who is also a licensed physician. I have been recommending him to friends and family for years now and with absolutely no complaints. He is always able to fit me into his schedule and help me as promptly as possible. I haven’t had to wait more than twenty minutes after checking in to see him. He is very knowledgeable and polite and is willing to answer all of my questions without being rude or cold.

Dr. Michael is very friendly and easy to talk to. His staff is great and his nurse was absolutely wonderful. I didn’t catch her name but she was quick, very efficient and friendly! I will definitely be sticking around with this doc for as long as I can
