About the Executive Health Assessment
The Executive Health Assessment is tailored with today's leadership in mind, identifying medical concerns early, when disease is most easily prevented and managed. The assessment includes a complete blood profile, physician assessment, urinalysis, metabolic syndrome screening, and cardiovascular, neurological, respiratory, abdominal, dermatological and musculoskeletal assessments. Patients undergo tests including ECG, cardiac stress test, ultrasounds of abdomen, pelvis and carotid arteries, a comprehensive physical examination, complete lab work and more. Following the assessment, patients receive a report containing assessment results, and recommendations for achieving optimal health.
