DiLorenzo Pentagon Health Clinic

DPHC Medical Readiness

This clinic conducts physical exams for service members assigned to the Pentagon. We provide annual Periodic Health Assessment (PHA), Separation and Retirement Physicals (SHPE), Special Duty Screenings, Deployment Health Assessments, and School Physicals. During our administrative time, providers review and sign documents required for PCS’ing, Reenlistments, and Reassignments.   

Annual Readiness Requirement

Depending on your branch of service, you will refer to your IMR, MOL, BOL or Airforce portal to determine your readiness status. Use the information below as a reference to ensure you are “green” in all categories. Your age and what documentation you need signed will determine what categories apply to you in the listing below. Your readiness status directly affects the ability for a technician or provider to sign documents you may need.  

Periodic Health Assessment

Annual physical health assessments must be completed in order to be considered medically cleared by a provider. Use the links below to access the online portion of your PHA. This online portion must be completed prior to scheduling. The provider portion will not populate until the service members’ portion is complete.
