Complete Health Exam
The complete health exam is the basis of maintaing good health.  It includes taking a history, physical examination, and tests taylored to the patients specific needs.

During the history, the patient is asked about past medical problems.  They go over medications with the doctor and they have can express any concerns they have about medical or emotional/mental issues.

In the physical exam, all medical systems are examined.  The doctor looks at cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, bones and joints, amoungst other systems.  He is looking for any new symptoms or changes in past medical problems.

Finally, pertinent lab and other test are performed and reviewed.  In Dr. Aiello's office, the patient has lab work done prior to the physical.  Then it can be reviewed during the exam.  If other tests are needed, many can be done in the office.  He has the ability to perform EKG, pulmonary function testing and x-rays.
