Full Health Check-ups and Preventative Health (commonly known as just Check-ups)
are examinations and investigations aimed at identifying any preventable
disease in an asymptomatic person. These can include skin cancer screening,
pap smears, STD checks, cardiovascular health, weight management, mental
health, bone health, prostate problems, cancer prevention, smoking and alcohol
There are various health checks recommended at different ages and as it is quite complex and often related to your family history, it is wise to make an appointment with your doctor to discuss what is appropriate for you at your age.
Often, we have patients asking for a check-up at the end of a medical problem consult, but as these can be complex and time consuming, we ask that if you want a full health check, that you make a dedicated long appointment for this. Feel free to talk to our staff if you need more information.
