I think the english translation if bad. The wiktionary definion for khám:
Definition 1) to examine carefully (for evidence of crime, etc.); to search; to ransack; to check.
Example: lệnh khám nhà = a search warrant
Definition 2) (of a doctor) to examine (a patient)
Example 1: khám bụng = to clinically examine the abdomen
Example 2: khám sức khoẻ = to check someone's health
Definition 3) (of a patient) to see (a doctor)
Example: đi khám bác sĩ = to go to see a doctor
