A Typical Visit
Before Your Visit
The cost of your Executive Physical is paid by your employer, not your health insurance company. However, insurance information will be requested. Once you have scheduled your appointment, a pre-appointment packet with instructions and directions will be mailed to your home. Prior to your Executive Physical, you will receive a hemoccult slide kit which screens for early detection of colorectal cancer. Please carefully review the preparation instructions included in the kit. Business casual is appropriate for your Executive Physical. Wear comfortable clothes and running shoes suitable for physical activity if you are scheduled for a treadmill stress test.
During Your Visit
The Concierge Executive Health Program coordinator will greet you on the morning of your Executive Physical at the Metro Health Professional Building. You will then meet with your Concierge Executive Health Physician who will conduct a review of your medical, family, and social history. Next, you’ll receive a complete physical examination. Based on the results of this examination, your doctor will recommend any necessary health screens and lab work that needs to be done.
You will spend time at various test areas in Metro Health Hospital with little to no waiting between testing. After completing these tests, a healthy breakfast of your choice will be provided while you meet with the Concierge Executive Health Educator to discuss any available results. If the doctor feels you may need to receive further treatment or follow-up testing, he or she will make recommendations and answer any questions you may have about your appointment or future appointments.
After Your Visit
After your appointment, you will receive a follow-up packet, including a physician report, lab results, and preventive health education tools. All results from your Executive Physical will be mailed to your home address and Primary Care Physician’s office 1-2 weeks following your visit.
