Benefits of an Executive Health Check versus a Traditional Medical Examination at Dublin Health Screening
One-stop shop – cancer surveillance (top 6 cancer killers of Ireland are lung, bowel, prostate, breast, lymphoma and melanoma, in that order), which are screened for on an annual basis at least.
Risk factor reduction for coronary artery disease – 30-50% of Irish people serviced in traditional medical practices do not achieve targets for blood pressure and cholesterol control, hence placing themselves at a much higher risk of coronary artery disease – when LDL (bad cholesterol) is reduced by 1 mmols per litre, the risk of future coronary artery disease reduces by 30%, hence the significance of achieving targets.
Minimise waiting time – our patients are either seen on time or at most 15 minutes waiting time on busy days.
Other current medical issues dealt with at your annual visit e.g. musculo-skeletal problems, hearing etc.
Use of up-to-date technologies indicated e.g. coronary CT scanning on a needs basis to predict future events in higher risk patients. Note we only refer for a CT if a clinical exam or results warrant same.
Basic expertise of cardiology, dermatology, urology for prostate cancer etc. offered in the one visit – whilst we cannot hope to match the knowledge of a specialist in one field, we certainly have sufficient knowledge and expertise to provide a reasonable in depth assessment on your annual visit.
Referral to only the best specialists that we personally have a professional relationship with and have screened for technical knowledge and practice style with the Blackrock clinic, St Vincents private and the Beacon clinic.
