It is never too late to start taking care of your health. Preventive medicine, a multi-faceted discipline uniting various scientific perspectives and approaches, can help you avoid illness and live a longer, healthier life.
Our primary focus is the prevention of illness and disease in individuals. The most important element of individual preventive medicine is the check-up. This provides you and your doctor the time necessary to discuss your medical history in detail and conduct a thorough examination into the current state of your health. Your doctor can compare that against the norms for your age group, discuss any particular risk factors you might have, and offer advice on staying healthy. Many insurance companies cover the costs for a Check-up. Please contact your insurance company to find out.
As an owner of a company, you carry a certain amount of responsibility for the health and well-being of your employees. We can support you by helping you implement preventive ergonomic and medical measures at your business. For example, many people are more comfortable going for a medical check-up when it is carried out as part of a group. Studies have shown that employees are most efficient at work when they are physically and mentally fit. If you sign up for a “company check-up” you’ll be doing something good for your employees and your business.
