Executive Health & Fitness Q&A

by Sarah M. Speck, MD, FACC

What is An Executive Health Assessment?

This assessment is an efficient and holistic whole body exam designed with the busy professional in mind. This visit should provide a one stop shop to address any and all health concerns held by the patient. As well as to provide a full check up of the patient’s health. The appointment takes some time to complete, but by the end of the session, the patient will be able to discuss the results with Dr. Speck, who will be providing them with her best advice on how to maintain and improve health, managing any health risks identified during the assessment.

What Kind of Services Are Provided?

The executive health and fitness assessment includes the following services:

  • Medical Exam: A physical examination of the major body systems will be carried out. Your medical history will be reviewed along with any family history, health maintenance activity and social health behaviors.
  • Comprehensive lab panel: Samples of blood, urine and stool will be collected to monitor a wide variety of conditions including, but not limited to blood count, kidney function, liver function, blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, and prostate cancer.
  • Nutritional consultation: The patient will submit a three-day food log which will be reviewed with a nutritionist, who will help to set goals around healthy eating.
  • Fitness testing: A physiologist will provide a thorough assessment of; bodymetrics, body composition, resting metabolic rate and perform cardiopulmonary exercise tests, flexibility tests and strength tests.
  • Post assessment consultation: Dr. Speck will meet with patients at the end of the assessment to review the results and discuss treatment plans and behavior changes to ensure that patients are able to live at optimum health.
  • POTENTRx: Dr. Speck provides an in-office fitness lab where her patients can receive personalized advice and support to improve their fitness and wellbeing. This multidisciplinary approach allows patients to test their overall health and fitness and recieve coaching and support to obtain optimal health and performance across all parts of their lives. 

What Does the Patient Need to Do to Prepare for This Assessment?

The patient should not eat or drink for at least eight hours before the appointment so that the blood tests can reveal the “fasting” results, i.e. not affected by something he or she ate or drank like caffeine or sugar. Also, the patient should be prepared to provide or bring urine and stool samples. The patient will be asked to bring at least a three-day food diary for nutritional consultation. Patients should wear comfortable clothing and sneakers for the fitness assessment.
