Health Screening Packages
Health screenings involve a series of tests and physical examinations to detect any potential conditions or concerns that may arise in the future. It is an important first step that you can take in the journey to better manage your health.
Why should you go for a health screening?
Early detection and prevention:
Potential health issues, when detected early, are more treatable compared to those at a later stage. Timely intervention can also prevent further complications and increase the chance of successful treatment.
Peace of mind:
Some may dread the days after a health screening as they may fear the detection of a medical condition. However, undergoing regular health screenings can provide reassurance about your current health status. It also allows you to make informed decisions about your health and lifestyle as you know what steps to take to improve yourself.
By providing valuable insights into your health and physical condition, your doctor will be able to tailor recommendations and treatments based on your specific needs.

What happens during a health screening?
Health screenings typically involve a combination of assessments, tests, and consultations with your doctor. While the specifics may vary depending on the screening package chosen, here are some common components of a health screening.
Medical history review:
A healthcare professional will discuss your medical history, including any existing conditions, medications, allergies, and family medical history. This information helps provide a comprehensive understanding of your health status.
A thorough physical examination may be conducted, including measurements of blood pressure, heart rate, body mass index (BMI), and a general assessment of your overall physical health.
Blood and urine samples may be collected for laboratory analysis. These tests can help identify various health indicators such as cholesterol levels, blood glucose levels, liver and kidney function, and markers for specific diseases or conditions.
What should you do after a health screening?
After your results are available, our doctor will review and discuss them with you. If they are normal, you will be advised to return at recommended intervals for continued screenings. However, if any risk factors are detected, a customized plan will be developed by your healthcare provider, which may include making necessary lifestyle changes. You may also be asked to return for further check-ups to monitor your health.
How do you choose the right health screening package?
The recommended package will vary depending on each individual due to factors such as family history, lifestyle choices, and budget. We recommend scheduling an appointment with us to identify the most suitable health screening package based on your individual health profile and medical history.
What are the misconceptions about health screenings?
Health screenings are only for the elderly:
They are beneficial regardless of age. Early detection of health issues can lead to more effective treatment and improved outcomes. It’s never too early to prioritize your health!
Health screenings are only necessary if you have symptoms:
As we live in a fast-paced society, many of us may delay going for screenings until we feel something is wrong. Certain conditions, such as diabetes, can be asymptomatic in the early stages. Regular screenings can detect potential issues before symptoms manifest.
Health screenings are expensive and unnecessary:
They are an investment in your long-term well-being. Detecting and preventing diseases early can save you significant medical expenses and potentially even save your life.
One health screening is enough:
As our bodies change with age, particular genders are more likely than others to develop certain cancers and other diseases, even if prior screens were negative. Additionally, every screening gives medical professionals a baseline from which to gauge the health of their patients during follow-up exams, enabling them to make more accurate diagnoses and treatment recommendations.
