Our business is your health. Whether your company has invested in its executives,
or you are interested in finding out more about your overall wellness,
a visit to Hoag Executive Health takes a comprehensive look at the state
of your body.
Describing an executive physical as a comprehensive, full-day medical,
fitness and nutrition evaluation is not enough to completely understand
the experience. Although our physicals are customized to meet the specific
needs of each client, we wanted to share a typical visit with our readers
to give them a sense of the amazing experience. Enjoy!
7:45 a.m. – Arrival
Upon arrival, you are immediately greeted by our friendly concierge. The
concierge has been your contact leading up to your exam and plays an integral
role in developing a schedule to evaluate your specific health needs using
medical history and other information gathered prior to your exam day.
The concierge will review the schedule with you and answer any questions
or requests you have prior to beginning the day. You will then be introduced
to the medical team who will begin working with you on initial testing,
which includes drawing your blood and cataloging your metabolic rate at
rest, carotid artery thickness and other vital signs. In addition, medical
staff will collect information on your vision, hearing, lung and heart
function and other comprehensive laboratory panels.
8:15 a.m. – Breakfast
In order to take the best readings when you first arrive, you are asked
to fast from the evening before. Hoag Executive Health provides a balanced
breakfast after the laboratory tests to help fuel your body to recover
from your overnight fast, as well as prepare for the fitness testing later
in the morning.
8:30 a.m. – Consultation with Physician
At this time, you will meet with our physician one-on-one to conduct a
comprehensive review of all of your health and medical information. This
meeting allows you to have a detailed discussion with the physician and
allows him or her to address any concerns and questions in advance to
make sure the rest of the day meets your expectations.
9 a.m. – Physical Exam
When was the last time you had a thorough physical exam? At Hoag Executive
Health, our highly-trained and respected physicians take the time to methodically
exam your body from head-to-toe. There is no rush to move you out of the
office to see the next patient and our doctors take as much time as necessary
to ensure they have fully examined you for any possible health risks while
answering any questions you might have.
10:15 a.m. – Fitness and Nutrition Evaluation
When you speak to your primary care physician about your activity levels,
it usually requires an additional visit for specific tests that might
determine your fitness level. With a state-of-the-art fitness facility
right on-site, our experts evaluate your current fitness and nutrition
states. The evaluation includes assessing your coordination, muscle balance,
muscle strength and aerobic capacity. Our exercise physiologist will also
review your personal eating habits and preferences to shape a plan fit for you.
12 p.m. – Shower and Lunch
Instead of eating in your car, at your desk between meetings or chowing
down on fast food, Hoag Executive Health provides a delicious and nutritious
lunch to help you recover from the exercise portion of the day. You also
have the opportunity to relax before your initial debriefing on the exam.
1 p.m. – Follow-up Fitness and Nutrition
After lunch, our exercise physiologist will review their preliminary assessment
with several initial, actionable items to begin improving your health
immediately. Instead of recommending, “exercise and eating healthier,”
our experts will review specific exercises and types of exercises, as
well as recommendations on how to improve your diet in simple, easy to
1:30 p.m. – Follow-up Discussion with Physician
Using the data gathered during the morning, you will once again meet with
our doctor to review preliminary medical findings, as well as actionable
items to follow-up on with your primary care physician or during a follow-up
visit at Hoag Executive Health. We also provide immediate recommendations
you can make to improve your health and lower your risk for other possible
2 p.m. – Therapeutic Massage
This is a relaxing way to end your examination day with an experienced
therapist who delivers your massage based on the findings from your testing
for maximum benefits.
3 p.m. – Wrap-up
After all of your stress has melted away, your day ends with scheduling
a comprehensive follow-up consultation to review all your results in detail
following the exam.
All-in-all, it’s a streamlined and efficient day which provides you
valuable information to positively impact your health today and in the future.
