We understand the importance of the executive and management teams within industry.
These vital cogs in society are pivotal in creating economic stability and growth. We assist in safeguarding the future of businesses by offering comprehensive medical assessments for these key individuals. The value of the exec/director/manager can be beyond measure.
The extensive history, examination and special investigations are done to determine wellness and identify potential problems before they arise.
Our service includes extensive non-invasive investigations, managing disease, initiating therapy, assisting with health risk reduction, referral where required and annual review. Our core focus is looking for cardiovascular threats (leading cause of death globally.)
Following the assessment, our medical professionals then compile a detailed feedback report. This feedback report will outline concerns noted and advice on how to manage the problems. We pride ourselves in personal attention and the establishment of lasting relationships.
We offer multiple packages especially-structured for the health needs of executive professionals, conducted by an experienced doctor on-site:
The full physical examination measures the patient’s height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, respiratory, cardiovascular, neurological, skin, endocrinological, urogenital, gastro-intestinal and musculoskeletal systems.
A resting ECG precedes the stress ECG. Helpful in screening for heart disease (Ischaemic heart disease and arrhythmia.) Heart disease and stroke remain the number 1 killer. If we can pick something up early, we can save lives. Rhythm disturbances can also be recognised and managed.
Screening organs such as liver, kidneys, bladder, abdominal aorta, pancreas and spleen. Trying to identify abnormalities such as growths, enlargement and gallstones. This procedure is normally carried out in radiology departments.
This is important in mitigating stroke risk. This procedure helps identify vascular disease. Vascular disease is the leading cause of death and mortality worldwide. If we can see plaque we can manage and reduce the risk of possible complications
Assessing heart function, valve integrity and mechanics. This modality is used by cardiologists to assess how well the heart works. The heart is visualised in real time and measurements flow rates, ejection fraction and wall thickness are recorded. Colour flow doppler images allow for the assessment of compromised valves
Spirometry measures how well the lungs work (forced vital capacity, inspiratory volume and peak flow rate). The damage inflicted by smoking or respiratory disease can be quantified. Asthma control and review is monitored by pulmonologists with this type of equipment
Usually done in the radiology department. This is useful for assessing thyroid structure composition, size and looking for nodules. Potentially cancerous nodules can be identified and investigated.
Investigating urinary tract abnormalities by screening for abnormal content in urine including blood, white cells, protein, glucose, nitrites, urobilinogen.
These tests are typically conducted to test the hearing mechanism. Typically, audiometric tests determine one’s ability to recognise different sound intensities and differentiate between background noise and speech.
Full blood count, Urea and Electrolytes, GGT, Ferritin, PSA (men), Uric acid, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, Lipogram (total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL cholesterol) and glucose. This comprehensive battery of blood tests adds enormous value in assessing overall wellbeing. It provides an excellent platform for establishing the presence of underlying illness.
Detailed history, examination and special investigations. The summary report is simplified and highlights concerns noted and suggested management options. All reports are completed within 2 weeks of the appointment. Follow up discussions and queries are welcomed and encouraged.
