At the completion of the examination the physician will discuss any preliminary thoughts or concerns. As imaging and laboratory results are returned, they will be reviewed with the patient. If any results are deemed urgent or serious, the patient will be contacted by phone.
If a problem is detected, the Executive Health physician will arrange any appropriate referrals or appointments. If not, your physician will assemble the full battery of tests results and develop a complete Health Status Report for you. The Health Status Report is provided in hard-copy and CD format. It includes an account of your past medical history, family history, your physical examination, diagnostic procedures and tests from your visit and a summary of health recommendations.
This personalized Health Status Report will not only present a clear and comprehensive summary of your test results, it will also provide you with the knowledge to chart your best course of action in achieving a variety of health goals. The report is a self-contained, accessible and easily transportable package. Our patients are always encouraged to contact the physician by phone or email if there are any questions or concerns that were not fully addressed in the Health Status Report.
If you have a personal physician, we highly recommend that the Health Status Report and the results package be shared with your personal physician. At your request, we are happy to discuss the results of your health assessment with your personal physician. If you wish to be referred to a board-certified specialist or a board-certified internist at Cedars-Sinai for your ongoing care, we can also arrange for this.
