Executive Health Packages

Choose from our two packages: 

Executive Package: 

Consists of a full check-up where a detailed history, full clinical examination of all organ systems, effort ECG, lung function test,  and blood tests to rule out dreaded illnesses is conducted.

Focused Medical Package:

A particular history is taken where possible risks are identified with regards to that history, and thereafter, tests and investigations are performed based on those risks.

These packages are preventative in nature which means that both of them are geared towards identifying potential health problems and reducing the risk of you running into these problems in the future by promoting proper care for these illnesses or injuries in advance.
