Executive physicals are comprehensive physical examinations designed to meet your employer’s needs. These physicals ensure you’re in good health, help prevent diseases, detect disease symptoms early before serious complications arise, and make sure you are ready for the rigors of your employment.
During an executive physical at Calabasas Medicine, you can expect:
Dr. Rosen thoroughly reviews your medical history. This includes your symptoms, medications you’re taking, and your personal and family disease history.
During a physical examination, Dr. Rosen checks your weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs. He listens to your heart and breathing and examines your body for signs of disease. Dr. Rosen checks your vision, hearing, body composition, and lung function.
In women he may complete a pelvic examination, pap smear to screen for cervical cancer, breast exam (or recommend a mammogram), and osteoporosis screening. During a men’s executive physical examination, Dr. Rosen might screen for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and low bone density when necessary.
Based on your age, risk factors, and chronic disease signs or symptoms, Dr. Rosen may recommend diagnostic testing. He might suggest you undergo blood tests, imaging tests (X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, etc.), a biopsy, urine testing, or a cardiac stress test to analyze your heart’s activity and detect abnormalities.
If you’ve reached a certain age, Dr. Rosen may recommend a colonoscopy every 5-10 years to screen for colon cancer. Depending on your employer’s wishes, you may also need a drug screening test.
Based on the results of your executive physical examination and diagnostic tests (if applicable), Dr. Rosen lets you know which treatment, if any, you require. He might suggest lifestyle changes, medications or dietary supplements, counseling, or further diagnostic testing. Dr. Rosen recommends the least invasive option first and lets you have a voice in your treatment.
Schedule an executive physical examination every year or more often if your employer requires it. You might also require follow-up appointments to monitor chronic disease.
Don’t let diseases go undetected when simple diagnostic testing and treatment options are within reach. Schedule an appointment with Calabasas Medicine by phone or online today.
