clinical exam is a series of tests to check your physical conditions. usually it includes such basic checks: you would be asked to open the mouth, put a tongue out and back, close the eyes tightly and open them, follow the fingertip or mallet with the eyes, look up, down and aside, then your elbow, wrist and knee reflexes would be checked with the mallet, then you would be asked to sit and stand, do soem actions with the closed eyes (particularly touch your nose with both hands), then stand and walk two-three steps on toes and heels, and maybe some other reflexes whcih are ususally asses with a sharp object pricking you at the footm palm or abdominal wall. For grip assesment you may be asked to grip the doctor's finger, and that is usually all.

PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO ASSESS THE RESULTS BEFORE THE DOCTOR WILL TELL YOU HIS OR HER OPINION.
