Executive Physicals Q & A

What is an executive physical?

Everyone needs to include routine physical exams into their overall health and wellness plan, but for busy executives that need often falls to the bottom of a lengthy and seemingly never-ending agenda. Executive physicals offer a solution in the form of a personalized medical exam. 

Many top companies offer executive physicals as part of their recruitment and compensation package. Not only is the benefit attractive to top prospects, it also pays off on the bottom line. Healthy leaders have more to offer in their role, and employees who are happy and healthy outside of work tend to function at higher levels in the office as well as out. 

Finding the right leadership team takes time, expense, and significant effort. Once that team is in place, it makes sense to protect that investment by delivering customized medical care to enhance health and wellness. 

What is included in an executive physical?

An executive physical can be customized to meet your specific set of needs. The process always involves a comprehensive health assessment and a review of your personal and family health history. 

Some additional elements might include:

  • Preventive screening tests
  • Lifestyle assessment
  • Cardiovascular counseling
  • Review of immunization records
  • Medication checks
  • Stress management counseling

The information gleaned during the physical exam and health history review helps your provider at Farr Medical Group, Inc. refine the exam to suit your current set of screening needs. 

What if I already have a chronic health condition?

The primary focus of executive physicals is on preventive health, but you can also benefit from chronic disease management services as well. If you are already aware of a chronic disease or one is discovered during the executive physical process, the team can help you find a management plan that aligns with your needs and lifestyle. 

For example, if your screenings show you have diabetes you can learn more about the treatments that can help you move your blood sugar readings closer to a normal level. You’ll also learn how to make meaningful lifestyle modifications that can help control your diabetes and prevent further health damage.
