About The Annual Evaluation

About The Annual Evaluation

We thoroughly explore your health and well-being during the Executive Health annual evaluation. We assess several standard but important indicators of overall health and well-being. We also take time to understand your individual challenges and personal goals. We then combine all those priorities into one comprehensive evaluation.

Your visit takes place under one roof, in a private, dedicated clinic with state-of-the-art screening tools. It will be led and coordinated by a board-certified physician specializing in internal medicine and practicing preventive medicine and management of chronic diseases.

You receive most test results the same day and discuss them with a physician. When you leave the appointment, you have a roadmap to better health, wellness and work-life balance. If you need follow-up specialty care based on the findings, we help facilitate those appointments.

Preparing for your evaluation

You can schedule your evaluation promptly at a time that works best for you. We will contact you to gather details about your personal and family medical history. We also will ask you about any issues, concerns or priorities you have regarding your physical and mental health.

This information will help us design a personalized evaluation that meets your individual needs and care goals. We’ll organize all elements of your evaluation and call you to review it. We’ll also send you:

  • Itinerary, including healthcare providers you’ll visit and tests you’ll receive.
  • Map and brochure.
  • Restrictions if applicable (for example, fasting before blood tests).

When preparing for your appointment, remember to bring:

  • Comfortable clothing, such as a pullover in case you get cold, athletic attire for physical fitness testing and sneakers.
  • Glasses or contacts.
  • List of all current medications, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements.
  • Record of immunizations you’ve received during adulthood.
  • Laptop and cell phone, which you may use in the lounge between appointments.

What to expect during your executive physical

Your private health check takes place in a quiet space that’s separate from the general patient population. The Executive Health Program is in a state-of-the-art, dedicated, private clinic. It includes a lounge area where you can take a break between tests, make calls or check email.

We design each annual evaluation for the individual. The following explains what’s included in many annual evaluations. But you will have a custom combination of tests and assessments as determined by you and your Executive Health physician.

History and physical

Your Executive Health physician will take as much time as necessary to gain a thorough understanding of your:

  • Current health, including medical issues and concerns.
  • Goals for the annual evaluation.
  • Personal medical history.
  • Questions you have about health and well-being.
  • Risk of disease based on family history and lifestyle.

  • Computed tomography (CT) coronary calcium score to determine plaque buildup in your coronary arteries.
  • CT scan of your lungs if you are at risk for lung cancer.
  • Electrocardiogram to assess your heart’s electrical activity.
  • Spirometry to detect breathing and airway problems.

The annual evaluation often includes additional tests of overall health, some of which may be specific to your biological sex, such as:

  • Personalized genetic testing and counseling.

What to expect after your Executive Health annual evaluation

We’ll give you a detailed summary of your test results and consultations at the end of your annual evaluation. The report will serve as a roadmap for you to improve your health and well-being. It will include our team’s conclusions and recommendations for changes in lifestyle and follow-up care.

All information from your exam is strictly confidential. With permission, we can share your health information and test results with your primary care physician or other medical professionals. You also can access the information on Cleveland Clinic’s electronic health record, MyChart.

We work to expedite appointments with Cleveland Clinic experts if the annual evaluation detects any issues that require specialty care. We also can refer you to the Concierge Medicine Program at Cleveland Clinic Florida for private, immediate access to our physicians. Or you can follow up with specialists closer to your home.
