You’re a successful executive. You’ve worked hard to get where you are, and you’re not about to let anything stand in your way. But what if something is standing in your way, and you don’t even know it? What if you have a health condition that could derail your career and your life?
That’s where the executive physical exam comes in. This comprehensive exam can help you detect early signs of disease, so that you can get the treatment you need and stay healthy. It can also give you peace of mind, knowing that you’re doing everything you can to stay healthy.
Traditional Physical Exams
Traditional physical exams are often very cursory. They may include a brief medical history, a physical exam, and a few basic lab tests. However, they may not be comprehensive enough to detect early signs of disease.
Executive Health Physicals
Executive health physicals are more comprehensive than traditional physical exams. They typically include a more thorough medical history, a physical exam, a wider range of lab tests, and sometimes even imaging tests. However, some executive health physicals may rely on body scans with excessive radiation exposure that over diagnose incidental findings that drive up cost and anxiety and are not clinically significant.
Care Coordination Programs
Care coordination programs are another option for executives who want to get a comprehensive health evaluation. These programs typically involve a team of doctors and other healthcare professionals who work together to coordinate your care. However, some care coordination programs may refer you to many specialists, which can waste time and money.
The Best Option for Executives
The best option for executives who want to get a comprehensive health evaluation is to find a program that strikes a balance between comprehensiveness and cost. This may mean choosing a program that does not rely on excessive radiation exposure or that does not refer you to too many specialists. It is also important to find a program that has a primary care provider who can oversee your care and help you make decisions about your health.
