We bring the world-class care of ColumbiaDoctors and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to you in a seamless process that emphasizes the most advanced examination, testing, and analysis available.

In one day of focused attention to your health and well-being, you will gain a comprehensive assessment of your health. Our state-of-the-art program goes beyond other executive health programs to provide customized recommendations from our medical experts based on your data.

Let ColumbiaDoctors help you make your health the best it can be.

What We Do

Your comprehensive health assessment is an in-depth consultation with an expert general internist. We will survey your health information before you arrive and will gather more information from you in person. During your visit, we will review your medical and health history, provide a complete physical examination, and perform some specialized testing. Laboratory tests will be obtained prior to the visit and at your convenience. Follow-up tests will be performed or arranged during your visit. After assessing your general health and test results, we will recommend appropriate lifestyle modifications and plan for any follow-up diagnostic or treatment services, as needed. Your assessment will:

  • Review known medical conditions and diagnose any new health issues
  • Recommend necessary specialists for referrals and management of your care
  • Screen for preventable or curable illnesses
  • Provide indicated immunizations
  • Assess your diet, physical function, and activity
  • Compile and assess your family medical history in anticipation of developments in genomics and precision medicine
