The Sequence of Events

Our experienced team focuses on the quality and the efficiency in the execution of the tests done as part of your medical check-up in order to minimize your time spent in our clinic. We even start at 6:30 a.m. to allow you to go back quickly to your usual activities. After scheduling the appointment, a comprehensive medical questionnaire is sent to you by mail or email, depending on your preference.

For the pre-visit preparation for your medical check-up, you should :

  • Bring the medical questionnaire completed
  • Bring a complete list of your current medication
  • Bring all relevant test reports
  • Fast for 12 hours before the appointment, 48 hours with no alcohol (when necessary)
  • Bring comfortable running shoes and sportswear for the general fitness evaluation and, possibly, for the stress electrocardiogram (on the treadmill)

Usually, a medical check-up at Physimed takes place in two steps: a first visit for the medical evaluation and second visit for the results.

The First Visit

  • Half day

    The first visit of the medical check-up lasts on average 2 to 3 hours, depending on each person’s characteristics.

  • Laboratory Analysis

    For the patients that need laboratory tests and who whish to do them at our clinic, the medical check-up takes place in the morning since they need to fast for the blood and urine tests. Those tests are available at Physimed Health Group.

  • Medical Questionnaire

    At the time of your visit, you should bring the medical questionnaire completed (medical history, current treatments, lifestyle habits, etc).

  • Consultation with the doctor

    The complete physical examination performed by the family physician in charge of your file takes around 40 minutes and consists of clinical interview which includes the identification of personal risk factors for certain cancers (breast, colon, prostate, etc.) and for cardiovascular diseases as well as a personalised preventive health counselling session.

  • other tests

    The other exams or tests take place by stations that follow each other according to your protocol approved by your physician.

The Second Visit

  • Presentation of results

    A follow-up visit for the results, which lasts on average 15 to 30 minutes, takes place approximately 2 weeks after the first visit.

  • Consultation with the doctor

    During this visit, the family doctor from Physimed Clinic Inc. that is assigned to your file comments on the results of the tests, advises you on your health and may recommend some more tests or a follow-up plan (if necessary).
