The Premier Executive Health Package

Detailed medical history and physical examination
A complete medical history is the cornerstone for effective assessment and diagnosis. A medical history reviews any past problems and looks for susceptibilities based on your personal and family background, as well as your health habits. You will have the opportunity to raise any medical concerns you may have. Your personal Executive Health physician will then perform a thorough physical examination.

Comprehensive laboratory screening tests
These detect any indications of anemia, low-grade infection, diabetes, thyroid disease, liver disease, or kidney disease. These tests include a lipid panel to assess cardiac and stroke risk factors. Testing for men also includes prostate specific antigen (PSA) screening for prostate disease. In the course of a lifetime, one in five men will develop prostate cancer, and 3 percent will die from it. The incidence rises with age, African ancestry, and family history of prostate cancer. Testing for women includes a CA125 test for ovarian cancer.

Comprehensive eye examination
This includes examinations of external eye structures, pupils, eye muscle function, visual fields, and visual acuity.

Hearing loss of some degree affects 22 million Americans. High frequency loss, which impairs speech comprehension, is the most common form of hearing loss. Most individuals tend to underestimate the degree of any hearing impairment and delay using hearing aids.

Resting electrocardiogram (EKG)
This test assesses the rhythm and electrical activity of the heart. An EKG gives valuable information regarding the overall health of the heart while it is at rest.

Chest X-ray
A chest X-ray assesses heart size and screens for pulmonary disease, including lung masses.

Pulmonary function testing (PFT)
PFT assesses emphysema, bronchitis, asthma, or other pulmonary problems. As we age, our lung capacity tends to decrease. PFT is useful for comparing lung function over time. Current or former smokers will especially benefit from PFT.

Hemoccult test
A hemoccult test is used to detect gastrointestinal bleeding from tumors, polyps, ulcers, or other causes.

Skin cancer screening
A skin cancer screening to look for new skin growths or changes in existing moles is an invaluable tool to assess dermatologic health and to address any concerns. A full skin survey will be done at the time of your visit.

Stress Management/Healthy Lifestyle Coaching
A detailed discussion of how to reduce stress and emphasize quality of life from a medical perspective.

The Premier Women’s Executive Health Package

Includes the Premier Executive Health Package plus:

Bone densitometry 
This is the best screening test for early diagnosis of osteoporosis. The medical center’s state-of-the-art DPX-IQ bone densitometer is the latest generation of diagnostic equipment. Bone densitometry is a painless, 10-minute procedure.

Your mammogram will be performed at the Institute for Breast Care by a certified mammography technologist. While you are there, dedicated radiologists who are specialists in breast imaging will review your mammogram and provide you with immediate results. The best defense against breast cancer is early detection and prompt screening.

Pap test
The Pap test is the most important screening available for early detection of cervical cancer.

Advanced Preventive Cardiology Package

You may add this package to other services:

Carotid Doppler Exam
This screening test is a non-invasive, ultrasound study that will detect any narrowing of your carotid arteries. Artery stenosis (clogging) can lead to a disabling, unannounced stroke, a leading cause of death and disability in the United States.

Complete abdominal screening
This ultrasound screening is your first diagnostic line of defense in detecting abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), which can be fatal. Major risk factors for AAA include being a male, a history of smoking, and age 65 or older. Other lesser risk factors include family history, coronary artery disease, claudication, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, cerebrovascular disease, and increased height. A screening abdominal ultrasound is an accurate test for AAA, with 95 percent sensitivity and near 100 percent specificity.

Peripheral artery screening
Peripheral artery disease is a condition similar to coronary artery disease. It is most common in the arteries of the legs and pelvis. The ankle brachial index, a ratio of ultrasound-recorded pressures in the lower and upper extremities, is a simple and accurate non-invasive test for the screening and diagnosis of peripheral artery disease. The ankle brachial index has demonstrated greater accuracy than other available methods of screening for this important health concern.

Ultrafast CT Scan – Electron Beam Computed Tomography
Sophisticated cardiac imaging technology that measures the presence and extent of calcium in your coronary arteries. This provides the most accurate “picture” available of your current risk for future heart disease. The EBCT scan is fast, painless and non-invasive.

Specialty Services

You may also request the following special services while you are here:

Exercise stress test
Conducted by a cardiologist, this test uses a treadmill and EKG procedures to monitor your heart and evaluate how it functions during physical exertion. A stress test is invaluable in detecting signs of coronary artery disease.

Colon cancer screening
After your medical assessment, your physician will recommend either a flexible sigmoidoscopy or a colonoscopy, using a flexible sigmoidoscope, to screen your rectum and sigmoid colon for abnormal growths and tumors.

Ultrafast CT scan (electron beam computed tomography)
An ultrafast CT scan is a sophisticated cardiac imaging study that measures the presence and extent of calcium in your coronary arteries. This study provides the most accurate “picture” available of your current risk for future heart disease. An ultrafast CT scan is fast, painless, and non-invasive.

Travel Medicine
Consultation on your travel-related health requirements and all required health inoculations.

Administered per current CDC guidelines

Spa Services
Conveniently located in the same building as Executive Health, BEYOND Spa is a full service luxurious day spa. Services, such as massages, facials, body treatments or nail care may be coordinated within the same day of your exam. We also offer cosmetic services, including Botox and Restalyne.
