Overview

Overview

Our comprehensive medical and wellness assessment will help you understand your health today and create an action plan for tomorrow. 

We have transformed the traditional physical from a one-sided data-gathering exam into an integrated, collaborative, head-to-toe evaluation by top medical and wellness professionals. During your six-hour day of care, you will meet with various providers, including a physician, nurse, dietitian, exercise physiologist and psychologist.

Executive Health Program

Feel more confident with your health status and know the steps you need to take to achieve better health and wellness.

The day has been designed to provide you ample time with our physicians and wellness clinicians to encourage discussion and learning about your health. By the end of the day, you’ll feel more confident with your health status and know the action steps you need to take to achieve better health and wellness.

After your assessment, you will receive access to our online medical record portal – MyChart – where you will receive your detailed medical report from your Executive Health team. These will outline your current health status, as well as provide actionable recommendations to improve your health.

Throughout the year you are able to contact your nurse to ask any questions related to your clinical assessment. You also have access to book an Express Care appointment - virtually or in person- with our nurse practitioners if you aren’t feeling well. Our Express Care service addresses non-emergency medical issues that may arise during the year such as a sore throat, ear infection or common cold.

Day of Care

Your day of care begins when you schedule your appointment. To help us prepare for your time with us, you will receive a medical questionnaire to complete prior to your arrival. This is an important step because it provides valuable information to our medical team.

Prior to your assessment, you will complete a pre-visit call with a registered nurse to review your medical history and help identify your goals to customize your day of care. On the day of care, your clinical team will customize your experience based on your health needs.

History and Physical

  • A detailed medical history and evaluation, which provides an assessment of your overall physical health.

Comprehensive Laboratory Tests

  • A complete blood count
  • Urinalysis to detect problems such as diabetes and kidney disorders
  • Blood tests to detect problems such as thyroid abnormalities, liver disease and diabetes
  • PSA (prostate-specific antigen) blood test for males over 40 to detect levels of this prostate cancer marker
  • Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and iron levels

Vaccinations

  • Adult vaccinations, reviewed and administered as needed

Cardiac Health

  • Cardiac Stress Test: A treadmill exercise stress test to screen for unrecognized coronary artery disease, high blood pressure (hypertension) and abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Includes Resting Electrocardiogram (ECG).
    OR
  • VO2 Max: A treadmill-based exercise test that provides an enhanced assessment of your cardiorespiratory function and your fitness level.
  • OR
  • Exercise Capacity Assessment: Our ECA was developed to provide patients with a more user friendly alternative to the Maximal VO2 Assessment (VO2 Max). Both assessments are similar in that they provide valuable information regarding exercise capacity and provide guidance for exercise prescription. Your exercise physiologist will customize either assessment by manipulating speed and incline (or resistance, if on the stationary bike) based on individual capabilities, heart rate response and subjective rate of perceived exertion. The VO2 Max requires the participant to wear a mask that measures maximal oxygen utilization during exercise, while the ECA is performed without a mask and assesses exercise capacity based on the combination of maximum participant speed and incline/resistance. In both cases, the participant has the ability to terminate the assessment at their discretion.

Visual Health

  • Visual Acuity Test: Visual screening.
  • Tonometry: A check of pressure within the eye to screen for glaucoma.
  • Fundus Photography: A specialized camera used to capture intricate images of the interior surface of your eye, in order to screen for the presence of disorders and monitor any changes over time. 

Auditory Health

  • Audiogram: An evaluation of your hearing to screen for early signs of hearing loss.

Pulmonary Health

  • Spirometry: This breathing function test helps to detect emphysema, bronchitis, asthma and other lung problems.

Diagnostic Imaging (as clinically indicated)

  • If required, general diagnostic imaging services such as x-ray, mammography, bone mineral density, and ultrasound are available on site. You will have an opportunity to discuss if these are recommended for you during your visit with your physician.

Wellness Consultations

  • Nutrition Consultation: A registered dietitian will provide nutritional recommendations and help you establish healthy eating habits that last a lifetime. Our registered dietitians translate cutting-edge, evidence-based scientific findings into real-life nutritional practice. They will assess your current eating habits and demonstrate the vital role diet plays in everything from disease prevention to optimizing your overall health and well-being. For a fee, patients may enroll in our nutritional genetics program.
  • Movement & Performance Consultation: Our Movement & Performance team is dedicated to helping you improve your overall movement, function and well-being. Your consult will include a comprehensive review of your past and current physical, functional and metabolic levels. Using a multidisciplinary approach to care and exercise, the team will provide insight and guidance related to your health and fitness journey.
  • Psychological Consultation: This confidential session encompasses a number of important health and lifestyle factors that contribute to overall life satisfaction and optimal functioning. This includes an assessment of key concerns, such as stress management, work-life balance, mood, anxiety, sleep, interpersonal functioning and substance abuse.

Same-Day Test Results

Your Executive Health physician will summarize the team’s findings, discuss your available lab test results and provide any recommendations for follow-up tests. If your physician identifies a potential or existing problem requiring further evaluation, we will coordinate appointments with the appropriate specialists for an in-depth assessment.

Testimonials

“Taking time out from my busy schedule is not easy. My typical day is full of appointments and meetings – being organized and on time is critical to the success of my day. It was wonderful to see that Cleveland Clinic Canada is run the same way, starting on time and with a friendly hello. The appointments through the day were steady, efficient and supportive. I loved it! Spending the day at Cleveland Clinic Canada provided me with the time to focus on ‘me,’ a luxury that I realized is critical not only to my own health, but also to the health of my family and my business."
