Why do I need regular health checks?
Regular health checks can help identify early signs of health issues, thereby promoting preventive measures such as healthy lifestyle. They can also detect diseases in their early and reversible stages, reducing cost of treatment and improving chance of recovery.
How do I choose my package?
There is a wide range of health check services available in the market with examination items bundled up as packages to cater to specific patient profiles. These packages are often designed with convenience in mind; they help patients simplify the decision process. The best screening program is one that is tailored to your age, gender, lifestyle, family and medical history, current symptoms and specfic health concerns. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to health, therefore, it is advised to discuss your needs with your family doctor for a personalized screening plan.
The more tests the better?
More tests do not equate to better care. Receiving tests that are not warranted by history and physical examination are not only costly but can also be counterproductive. Patients can be harmed both physically and psychologically from follow-ups of false positives. It is advised to discuss your needs with your family doctor for a personalized screening plan. Furthermore, it is imperative that your detailed medical report be reviewed with you during your follow-up consultation with your doctor, who will explain findings and provide recommendations based on your health status.
