Your WholePerson Examination

The WholePerson Examination is a comprehensive, one-day executive exam that combines a full physical along with fitness and lifestyle counseling. Your day begins with a consultation with your Executive Health physician (an internal medicine specialist or family practitioner) for a detailed interview and clinical evaluation. In addition, you’ll be examined by physician specialists in cardiology, dermatology, radiology and, if requested, gastroenterology.

Following your clinical examination, you will have consultations with licensed lifestyle and fitness professionals for a true WholePerson experience.

Your executive health examination will include:

General health

Heart care testing

  • HDL and LDL subclasses and density patterns
  • Lipoprotein-a
  • Highly sensitive C-reactive protein
  • Lipoprotein (VAP) panel: an advanced cholesterol panel used to measure all cholesterol subclasses
  • Pulmonary function test
  • Resting electrocardiogram
  • Stress treadmill
  • Carotid Intima Medial Thickening: Thickening of the intima lining of the carotid artery is one of the earliest detectors for cardiovascular disease. This procedure, administered by a cardiologist or licensed ultra-sound technician, will alert your doctors to any special risks for stroke or other cardiovascular event.

Gender-specific testing
