WHAT IS MY HEALTH CHECK-UP?
My Health Check-Up is a comprehensive well persons check, specifically designed to prevent or early detect a detrimental health outcome in the future.
We believe, this as more than just a checkup but a start of a journey towards better health. We use our health expertise to build a clear picture of where your current health is and identify potential future health risks. After your health assessment, we’ll give you guidance and support to help you become healthier today and in the future.
MY HEALTH CHECK-UP IS DESIGNED TO:
- Uncover potential health problems
- Proactively manage identified health problems
- Reduce or eliminate any health risk factors
- Empower you to achieve a positive lifestyle change
Through our program, you will acquire detailed knowledge about your health status and know exactly what actions to take to improve your health and wellness.
A DEDICATED COORDINATOR
We do everything possible to co-ordinate your visits with your busy schedule. Our wellness coordinator will schedule all the visits at times that best suit you and advise you of any preparation required.
Prior to your visit, the coordinator will send you a health questionnaire. We use this questionnaire to customise your evaluation based on your health needs. The coordinator will also arrange for you to have a blood and urine test prior to your visit. Doing these tests before your actual visit means that your doctor will have all the results on your visit date to discuss with you.
A DEDICATED WELLNESS DOCTOR
On your visit day, you will meet a dedicated wellness doctor, who takes all the time necessary to understand your health concerns and carries out a comprehensive head-to-toe examination.
At the end of the evaluation, the doctor will discuss your examination findings and test results. The doctor will then recommend a management plan which may include lifestyle advice, treatments, further investigations, and specialist referral. You will also get a comprehensive written report either delivered to your home or email.
