Your Day of Care: Tailoring the Experience to Your Health Needs

Your day of care begins when you schedule your appointment. To help us prepare for your time with us, you will receive a medical questionnaire to complete prior to your arrival. This is an important step because it provides valuable information to our medical team.

Prior to your assessment, you will complete a pre-visit call with a registered nurse to review your medical history and help identify your goals to customize your day of care. On the day of care, your clinical team will customize your experience based on your health needs.

Executive Health

Below is an overview of your IT Executive Health experience. The order of appointments will vary by patient.

  • Exercise Capacity Assessment: Our ECA was developed to provide patients with a more user-friendly alternative to the Maximal VO2 Assessment (VO2 Max). Both assessments are similar in that they provide valuable information regarding exercise capacity and provide guidance for exercise prescription. Your exercise physiologist will customize either assessment by manipulating speed and incline (or resistance, if on the stationary bike) based on individual capabilities, heart rate response, and subjective rate of perceived exertion.  The VO2 Max requires the participant to wear a mask that measures maximal oxygen utilization during exercise, while the ECA is performed without a mask and assesses exercise capacity based on the combination of maximum participant speed and incline/resistance. In both cases, the participant has the ability to terminate the assessment at their discretion.
  • Visual Acuity Test: Visual screening.
  • Tonometry: A check of pressure within the eye to screen for glaucoma.
  • Fundus Photography: A specialized camera used to capture intricate images of the interior surface of your eye, in order to screen for the presence of disorders and monitor any changes over time. 
  • Audiogram: An evaluation of your hearing to screen for early signs of hearing loss.
  • Spirometry: This breathing function test helps to detect emphysema, bronchitis, asthma, and other lung problems.
  • If required, general diagnostic imaging services such as x-ray, mammography, bone mineral density, and ultrasound are available on site. You will have an opportunity to discuss if these are recommended for you during your visit with your physician.
  • Nutrition Consultation: A registered dietitian will provide nutritional recommendations and help you establish healthy eating habits that last a lifetime. Our registered dietitians translate cutting-edge, evidence-based scientific findings into real-life nutritional practice. They will assess your current eating habits and demonstrate the vital role diet plays in everything from disease prevention to optimizing your overall health and well-being. For a fee, patients may enroll in our nutritional genetics program.

 

  • Movement & Performance Consultation: Our Movement & Performance team is dedicated to helping you improve your overall movement, function, and well-being. Your consult will include a comprehensive review of your past and current physical, functional, and metabolic levels. Using a multidisciplinary approach to care and exercise, the team will provide insight and guidance related to your health and fitness journey.

 

  • Psychological Consultation: This confidential session encompasses a number of important health and lifestyle factors that contribute to overall life satisfaction and optimal functioning. This includes an assessment of key concerns, such as stress management, work-life balance, mood, anxiety, sleep, interpersonal functioning, and substance abuse.
