Evaluations and Procedures

Executive Wellness Blood Tests

  • Comprehensive Blood Count

    The Comprehensive Blood Count screens for more than 35 different diseases including cholesterol levels, red and white blood counts, liver disease and heart disease.

  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel

    Comprehensive Metabolic Panel measures your sugar or glucose level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function and liver function.

  • Hemoccult Testing

    Hemoccult Testing checks for any sign of bleeding in your stool. It is a screening test for colon and rectal cancer.

  • Lipid Panel

    Lipid Panel is a blood test that measures lipid-fats and fatty substances used as a source of energy by your body, including cholesterol, and triglycerides.

  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)

    PSA testing is performed to detect the presence of PSA. The PSA level is elevated in men with BPH and prostate cancer.

  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone

    Thyroid Stimulating Hormone testing screens for and helps diagnose thyroid disorders to monitor treatment of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.

  • Urinalysis

    Urinalysis Testing evaluates the physical, chemical, and microscopic qualities of urine. It detects and measures various compounds that pass through the urine to screen for disease.

  • Cardio C-reactive Protein

    Cardio C-reactive Protein testing measures the amount of protein in your blood which can signal general levels of inflammation in your body. High levels of CRP are caused by infections and many long-term diseases.

Executive Wellness Evaluations and Procedures

  • Abdominal MRI

    Abdominal MRI is a noninvasive method to create detailed pictures of the inside of the belly area. It may be used to diagnose or evaluate abnormal growths and tumors, blood flow in the abdomen, blood vessels in the abdomen, lymph nodes in the abdomen and how certain organs in the abdomen work.

  • Abdominal Ultrasound

    Abdominal Ultrasound uses reflected sound waves to produce a picture of the organs and other structures in the upper abdomen. Sometimes a specialized ultrasound is ordered for a detailed evaluation of a specific organ, such as a kidney ultrasound. An abdominal ultrasound can evaluate the abdominal aorta, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and kidneys to detect problems in any of those areas.

  • Body Composition Analysis

    Body Composition Analysis measures higher body fat percentages, and distributions of body fat, which is associated with numerous health disorders such as Diabetes, Coronary Arterial Disease, Cerebrovascular Disease, Hyperlipidemia, and Hypertension, among others. We can determine an ideal assessment of where you are, and what we need to do to take you to an ideal state for lowest health risk.

  • Brain MRI

    Brain MRI allows for the detection of tumor, lesions, tissue damage or diseases including Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), and Parkinson's disease.

  • Breast MRI

    Breast MRI is a noninvasive diagnostic procedure that uses a combination of large magnets and radio frequencies, instead of X-rays to produce detailed images of the breast. A breast MRI used with contrast dye can detect calcifications that are sometimes missed by a mammography and can highlight a tumor by showing the blood vessel supply in the breasts.

  • Cardiac CTA

    Cardiac CTA with Calcium Scoring uses a special X-ray test called computerized tomography (CT) to check for the buildup of calcium and plaque on the walls of the arteries of the heart and coronary arteries. This test is used to check for heart disease in an early stage to determine its severity.

  • Carotid Doppler Ultrasound

    Carotid Doppler Ultrasound test is a useful screening procedure that measures the blood flow through the arteries and provides information about the structure of the arteries from your collarbone to your jaw. It's used to evaluate the risk of stroke in patients who have a history of stroke or are believed to be at high risk. The carotid arteries are the two major arteries on each side of the neck that carry blood to the head. The goal of carotid ultrasound is to screen patients for blockage or narrowing of their carotid arteries, to reduce the risk of having a stroke.

  • Carotid MRA

    Carotid MRA is the latest in noninvasive magnetic resonance technology to look for narrowing and atherosclerosis in the arteries of the neck leading into the brain. The most sensitive noninvasive method available to assess risk for stroke.

  • Chest X-ray

    Chest X-ray should be a part of any executive physical, as well as selective use of X-ray technology to evaluate painful bones, joints, and cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back), or lumbar (low back) spine pain. An X-ray examination uses electromagnetic radiation to make images of your bones, teeth and internal organs. It's a fast, easy and safe way for your doctor to view and assess conditions inside your body. This is particularly useful in assessment of chest/lung pathology, as well as bone and joint pathology.

  • Exercise Treadmill Stress Test

    Exercise Treadmill Stress Test, also called an ECHO test, is used to provide information about how the heart responds to exertion. It usually involves walking on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike at increasing levels of difficulty, while you are monitored. The test is used to determine how well your heart tolerates activity, evaluate the function of your heart and valves, determine your likelihood of having coronary artery disease and evaluate the effectiveness of your cardiac treatment plan.

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)

    EKG is a simple test that records the heart's electrical activity. An EKG shows, how fast your heart is beating, whether the rhythm of your heartbeat is steady or irregular and the strength and timing of electrical signals as they pass through each part of your heart. Diseases of the coronary arteries, atherosclerosis, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia, and heart failure can often be detected by simple EKG analysis.

  • Mammography

    Mammography is an X-ray examination of the breast. It is used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who either have breast problems such as a lump, pain, or nipple discharge, as well as for women who have no breast complaints. The procedure allows detection of breast cancers, benign tumors, and cysts before they can be detected by hand.

  • Memory Screenings

    The mini–mental state examination (MMSE) or Folstein test is a brief 30-point questionnaire test that is used to screen for cognitive impairment. It is commonly used in medicine to screen for dementia.

  • Spiromerty Testing

    Spiromerty Testing measures air flow in the lungs, and is one of the most widely used tests to measure lung function or pulmonary function. The test is used to determine the cause of shortness of breath and to diagnose asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
