We all know the people (and you may be one) who would not go to the doctor if they were bleeding out of their eyes. Often times this results in not missing a few days work here and there but then having to quit our jobs over huge medical issues because we didn't catch something in time.
People usually don't go to the doctor's office until symptoms of their problem have reached an unmanageable peak. This is when tests are run and you find out that you're in the late stages of something and that not much can be done.
Moreover, a lot of people really dislike the medical system in our country. We find ourselves dealing with overcrowded and mismanaged medical providers. On top of that once we submit our doctor's visits for insurance coverage our medical records are no longer private.
Yes, there are laws that keep the insurance companies from disclosing our information, but that doesn't mean that some of our most intimate details aren't kept in their records. These files can be subpoenaed, stolen or misused. What we do and discuss with our doctors should be completely private.
At Executive Medicine of Texas we understand these concerns. We know how the lives of busy professionals are and have developed a system of screening and medical visits that fill many of these holes.
Visit our Menu of Services and learn more about the services we provide including the very important body scan.
We use the body scan to look for two of the biggest killers in this country; heart disease and lung cancer. Almost 85% of lung cancer tumors are only discovered by chest x-ray at a late stage where treatment is almost impossible. Likewise 93% of heart attack patients could have benefited from a CT scan to identify problems.
By identifying potential problems with our tests, body scan and comprehensive physical exams we understand how to better address your medical issues before it is too late.
This keeps their medical records completely confidential and doesn't involve a third party that might intentionally or unintentionally breach your privacy.
