Executive Physical Services

Your Executive Physical is customized to provide a comprehensive evaluation and diagnostic testing based on your unique medical needs, concerns and goals.

Comprehensive history and physical

A board-certified internist will discuss your medical history and perform a complete physical examination.

Laboratory and blood work

  • We will conduct a complete blood analysis, including cholesterol, lipid profile, blood sugar, blood count and other tests based on your age and health profile.
  • An in-depth urinalysis can detect kidney disease, diabetes, urinary tract infections and other conditions.

Heart disease assessment

A Yale New Haven Health cardiologist will assess your overall cardiovascular health and perform any of the following procedures:

  • A cardiac computed tomography (CT) scan for calcium scoring uses special X-ray equipment to produce pictures of your coronary arteries to determine evidence of plaque buildup, an indicator of atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease (CAD).
  • A treadmill stress test evaluates your cardiovascular system during a period of exercise to measure fitness and identify cardiac disease.
  • A cardiac ultrasound or echocardiography uses sound waves to detect enlarged blood vessels or aneurysms in the chest, while measuring heart action and valve function.

Cancer screenings

Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven, a leading institution for early detection and treatment of cancers of all types, offers focused screenings for breast, cervical, prostate, skin and lung cancers. We can arrange for a colonoscopy as well.

Vascular disease evaluation

When appropriate, we will use state-of-the-art imaging to search for signs of aneurysm in the abdomen, as well as blockages in the neck or legs.

  • An ankle brachial index compares the blood pressure in your ankle with blood pressure in your arm.
  • A carotid ultrasound test detects blockages in the important arteries supplying the brain.
  • A lower extremity duplex assesses circulatory causes of leg pain and tiredness.

Women’s health

We will provide a full gynecologic evaluation, including mammography, cervical cancer screening, bone density, audiology and genetic assessment for individuals at risk of disease.

Men’s health

We will evaluate a wide range of areas important to men’s health, including prostate cancer risk, potency, urologic function, audiology, cardiovascular health, bone density and skin cancer identification.

Wellness and lifestyle

  • We will provide a nutrition assessment and body fat analysis.
  • A certified nutritional counselor can assess your dietary habits to identify opportunities for you to achieve better health, and work one-on-one with you to create a healthy-living plan that best suits your lifestyle and medical needs.

Fitness directions
