Are there things a person can do to prepare for a pre-employment physical exam to ensure it goes as smoothly as possible?

There are a few steps an employee can take to prepare for a pre-employment physical exam, according to Premier HealthNet (PHN) physicians.

An employee should take a copy of the job description with him or her to the exam and give a copy to the healthcare professional. This will make sure the employee and healthcare provider are on the same page about what is and what is not acceptable to be part of the exam, according to PHN physicians.

The American Association of Retired PersonsOff Site Icon (AARP) also recommends that you stop taking any over-the-counter medication within 48 hours of an exam, unless directed otherwise by your primary care provider.
