The Executive Health Core Physical Exam is a thorough general medical evaluation designed to assess your health and wellbeing and, if needed, to establish a personalized medical plan of action to optimize the management of any identified condition. The selection of screening exams and diagnostic tests is based on the latest clinical practice guidelines. Brigham and Women’s Hospital is home to the most advanced technology for precise imaging and laboratory studies.
Prior to your medical visit, a physician will contact you to gain an understanding of your current health and to learn about your expectations for the visit. Together, you will decide and develop a personalized panel of tests, including any additional laboratory or imaging studies outside the scope of the Executive Health Core Physical Exam. In addition, during this conversation, you will have the opportunity to discuss consultations with appropriate specialists, if needed or desired, as well as appointments with the professionals in Wellness Services. Once a plan is established, we will coordinate all appointments to ensure that your visit is streamlined and executed expeditiously.
One-day core physical exam
On the day of your physical exam, you will meet your designated Executive Health Program coordinator, who will personally guide you to and from all appointments. The Executive Health Core Physical Exam includes a series of tests offered in an expedited manner. These include:
Additional tests beyond the scope of the Executive Health Core Physical Exam are available and can be discussed with your physician during your pre-visit conversation. Examples include: cardiac stress test, Pap smear, and colonoscopy. Please note that additional testing may require more than one day.
Following the completion of any testing, you will meet with our lead Executive Health Program physician during an extended visit to conduct a complete physical exam, summarize your evaluation, and provide medical recommendations. This conversation will ensure a thorough assessment and discussion of your health, including any additional actions that may need to be taken.
Follow-up report and action plan
Shortly after the Executive Health Core Physical Exam you will receive a medical report with details of the visit, including laboratory and test results and recommendations. This report also will be available online through the confidential patient portal. The lead physician will be available to discuss the content of your medical report in person, via telephone, or video conference.
Upon request, and with your authorization, we can forward the full medical report to your personal physician anywhere in the world.
Follow-up diagnostic tests or treatments
After your Executive Health examination, we will be glad to schedule any follow-up appointments for consultations with specialists, or any additional screening, monitoring, or diagnostic tests, if needed.
