At Novant Health McKee Internal Medicine, we believe that keeping our patients as healthy as possible throughout adulthood starts with regular preventative care. By seeing the doctor before you are sick, we can identify and treat small health issues before they become major health problems.
Annual physical exams
Annual physical exams are a necessity for all of our patients. Typically, these exams are covered 100% by health insurance. They do not take long, and include a comprehensive look at your health including any issues affecting your well-being. These exams are excellent ways to address issues early, and allow you to establish a relationship with your provider before you become ill. If any issues do arise in the future, your provider will have a better basis for understanding what might be causing the health issue.
Often, annual physicals include routine lab tests. For your convenience, you can have those tests completed at our on-site lab.
Novant Health McKee Internal Medicine regularly completes specialized physicals including work physicals and executive physicals for our patients from our office in Matthews, North Carolina. Please call our office at 704-316-2127 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday to discuss the type of physical you need and what will be included that exam so that we can determine how to best meet your needs.
Please note: Insurance does not always cover work or executive physicals. Please contact your insurance provider before your exam if you are concerned about coverage. Also, you are responsible for bringing any necessary forms to our office, as we will not have copies of the specific forms required for your work or executive physical.

Novant Health McKee Internal Medicine offers a variety of vaccines and immunizations to our patients. Some of the most common ones are listed below.
