A Wellness Medical is a routine health assessment, designed to give you an overall picture of your current health. A pre-emptive approach to healthcare is best, and we believe that prevention is always better than cure. If we can identify a problem early, doctors and other medical professionals will have a better chance of preventing a future condition or treating an existing one.
A Wellness Medical is not strictly designed to diagnose or investigate specific issues. While our tests may help to identify a condition, it may not be specific enough to fully diagnose and understand your condition or situation. If you have a specific medical concern, we would suggest that you have a consultation with a doctor first. If you do then require further testing, we can request a more specific test or screen.
The first stage of the medical is to establish the background details about your lifestyle, medical history, family medical history and any pre-existing conditions which may help us to evaluate the results of the medical. This is established using a pre-medical questionnaire. The pre-medical questionnaire will also help us identify any medical concerns that you may have and then areas where we can suggest possible changes to your lifestyle or possible treatment option.
* It is important to complete this form prior to your medical and either return it to us or bring it with you to your appointment.
Wellness medical appointments take around an hour to complete and during the appointment our doctors will provide you with a physical examination and collect the samples required to complete the medical.
* Please be aware that all of our medicals are fasting medicals and require that you do not eat and only drink water from 12am the night before.
As part of your medical we are also able to add additional tests or screens.
Once we have all the results of the examination, tests and screens we will provide you with a detailed report. In this report we will relay back to you your results and provide you with suggestions for treatment or follow up appointment.
Our wellness medicals also include a follow up appointment, which will give you the opportunity to go over the report and discuss your results with the doctor this can be carried out over the phone if it is more convenient.
Wellness medicals are designed for adults of any age. However, we recommend that you undergo routine assessment from the age of 40. An annual check-up won't do you any harm in fact the opposite! Annual assessments will allow you and any medical professionals involved in your healthcare to keep track of your health.
