Executive, Comprehensive Physicals

We assist patients with access to services through our network of providers such as Executive Physicals. A comprehensive physical examination is a great service for everyone, not only Executives. 

An executive physical is more than just a series of tests. You'll also likely discuss fitness and exercise plans with an exercise physiologist and get detailed diet advice from a nutritionist. Your appointment with a physician may cover such topics as sleep quality and stress management.

 

Most patients get a wide variety of tests done in a single day. Depending on your medical history, along with the usual height, weight and blood pressure readings, these can include a body composition analysis, electrocardiogram, cardiac stress test, lung capacity analysis, fitness evaluation, eye exam, hearing test and nutrition assessment in addition to lab tests for cholesterol and other health markers. Gender-specific exams such as pap smears and tests for prostate cancer markers are also available.

 

Typically these physicals include full panel laboratory tests, chest x-rays, pulmonary function testing (if needed), audiograms (if needed), full body CAT scanning, EKGs, heart stress tests, vascular age tests, urinalysis, and mammograms or prostate exams depending on gender.

 

We provide:

  • expedited appointments

Mental Support Services​​

Psychological, Counseling Support for Patients​

Many of our patients who receive a cancer diagnosis can be as devastating to the psyche as the cancer itself is to the body. Awareness and advocacy have played and continue to play essential roles in prevention, early detection, and treatment advances.

What seems to be missing from the conversation, however, is the psychological impact of a cancer diagnosis and its implications in care and prognosis. This is clearly evidenced not only in the hollow literature on the subject, but also by the sparsity of resources available. Most baffling is the lack of attention paid by the medical specialists whose very job it is to help.

According to The National Cancer Institute, up to 25% of cancer survivors experience symptoms of depression and up to 45 % experience anxiety. Many also experience symptoms meeting the criteria of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Most concerning is that survivors are twice as likely to commit suicide than the general population.

It varies for many patients, however for many cancer patients, negative psychological effects don't even begin until after treatment ends. This is often when distress sets in and one of the most crucial junctures during which attention must be paid to the emotional well-being of the patient. As important as it is to have support throughout treatment, perhaps more important is an ongoing sustainable support system that the patient can count on throughout recovery.  Then you have other patients who experience it as soon as they're diagnosed.

“Cancer survivors who are depressed are twice as likely to die prematurely as those who are not depressed” -Journal of Cancer Survivorship   

Whatever the illness or diagnosis may be for a patient, being affected by a mental health condition can sometimes make patients feel isolated and overwhelmed. Since dealing with the news the patient may have received, can already be tough, it’s important to find a support system that patient can rely on. Being able to talk to a trusted friend, family member, support group or mental health professional an provide relief and assistance in times of need. 
 
Mental Support for Caretakers, Family, The Healthy
 
We call mental support for The Healthy, becoming mindful - the practice of mindfulness. 

Mindfulness simply means "self- awareness." It is the process of focusing the mind, body and soul on what is being sensed in the moment, and it provides the client with the insight to observe and understand positive, negative and in-between feelings from a distance.

Mindfulness practices can help relieve stress, improve sleep, and reduce chronic pain, blood pressure and symptoms of heart disease. It also has the power to change the way your brain functions. Studies have found that activities such as meditation and yoga increase the number of signaling connections in the brain and provide better control over processing pain and emotions.

Mental health is part of overall health. Just like we can’t be well without good mental health, we can’t be healthy if we neglect the rest of our body. When dealing with a mental health condition it can be easy to fall into a rut, relying solely on medication or therapy to be your cure and forgetting to take good care of your body. However, paying attention to lifestyle choices is important for recovery as well, thus we have an array of providers offering preventive and well-being services from comprehensive physicals to yoga to cryotherapy, massage, facials, etc. Click on: Healthy Concierge Services.

We have hand-picked our providers for this service and they provide consultations and sessions via the phone, Skype and FaceTime.  However should you have a preference for an in-person session or a special request, please let us know and we will accommodate.

Clients pay for actual service needed directly to the providers.

Stress Management


We work with this provider who has scientific-based methods for evaluating and treatment of stress. "Stress is not a mental illness. But, mental illnesses can cause stress and it also goes the other way around where stress can cause mental illnesses." says Dr. James Mills. Dr. Mills is focused on revolutionising how people and especially the medical fraternity think of stress. "Stress is a defence mechanism, just like the skin and other organs. My mission is to educate people on stress and its related illnesses," Mills explains. His interest in stress began when he was in medical school and has not faded since. Wherever he went across the world, he had to find a bookstore to get a book that would increase his knowledge on stress. "The fact that I studied physiology further increased my interest in stress. Physiology along with medicine and surgery also widened my scope on stress by helping me to analyse things critically. Also, even while I was teaching at the UWI, I was teaching subjects that were about stress," Mills said. Mills is a fellow of the American Institute of Stress. In 2016 he established Global Stress Solutions, a facility that seeks to help people identify their stress source and solve their stress related problems. He is the only known person throughout the world to measure stress. Yes, with technological instruments he can measure your stress levels in the same way you can measure your body temperature. His wealth of knowledge on stress coupled with his mission to educate the public about stress led him to write The Scientific Principles of Stress, in 2012. This book became a best-seller on Amazon and made the New York Times Bestseller list. He believes that despite all the beliefs people have about stress, there is an underlying fact that all should understand.
