Annual Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation
If you're a Concierge Medicine member, you can enhance your health and well-being with a yearly comprehensive wellness evaluation.
This complimentary service is a key benefit of our outstanding, membership-based Concierge Medicine program. The annual evaluation helps our experts design and maintain a customized dietary and exercise plan for you.
What’s a Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation?
The wellness evaluation is a medical assessment to evaluate your health status and improve your well-being.
At UC San Diego Health, this unique benefit is provided in partnership with our Step Family Cardiac Rehabilitation and Wellness Center at Jacobs Medical Center in La Jolla.
The two-hour appointment includes in-depth, one-on-one consultations with a registered dietitian and clinical exercise physiologist. After the visit, you'll receive a full report with personalized dietary and exercise recommendations to improve your health.
What’s Included in the Annual Wellness Evaluation?
Body Composition Analysis
A body composition analysis helps your physician determine your level of health by providing details about your body’s proportion of fat mass, non-fat mass and water.
Using specialized bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology, your care team can establish a health benchmark for year-over-year comparisons. This data can also guide us to help improve your body composition and reduce overall health risks.
Personalized Nutrition Counseling
This one-hour session with a registered dietitian focuses on your dietary and nutritional needs. Recommendations may include ways to improve energy levels, promote healthy gut biome, or switch to an anti-inflammatory or plant-based diet. You’ll also get advice on planning meals, eating out or grocery shopping.
Customized Fitness Evaluation
A clinical exercise physiologist tailors this one-hour session to your goals, special needs, body composition and any health-related conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. It includes an EKG-monitored exercise session to assess your heart rate and rhythm in response to exercise. We'll then develop a fitness plan to optimize your energy level, blood pressure and body mechanics.
At the end of your visit, you'll get a full written summary, complete with personalized dietary and exercise recommendations. Our team will also send a visit summary, including your body composition results, to your primary care physician.
