    • To assess your lifestyle habits
    • To detect, early, different diseases or cancers
    • To investigate anomalies
    • To revise your medication (when necessary)
    • To establish a treatment plan and the monitoring of diseases (if necessary)
    • To find strategies to optimise your health by reducing risk factors and correcting deviant lifestyle habits

The physical examination protocols

The physical examination protocols evolve progressively from the time you call to schedule your appointment all the way to the end of your medical exam.

Physimed Clinic Inc. offers personalised medical check-ups which take into consideration your age, your sex, your personal and familial risk factors, the information from your medical questionnaire, your medical file, the medical examination performed by the physician and your specific requests (i.e. blood group).

Furthermore, the medical questionnaire completed by you highlights complaints which may guide our doctors to prescribe additional investigations.

Finally, the protocol is reviewed by your physician who may continue to individualise it by prescribing some tests or exams based on the findings of his physical examination.
