Preparing for Your Comprehensive Wellness Exam


This information will help you prepare for your customized health assessment:

  • Pre-examination instructions will be mailed to you with your schedule one to two weeks before your scheduled visit.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before your first scheduled appointment.
  • If you are scheduled for an exercise stress test, please wear comfortable clothing and comfortable footwear, such as running shoes. Lockers are available to store a change of clothes, if desired.
  • Don't eat or drink anything except for water for 10 to 12 hours before your blood work. You may be asked to provide a urine sample.
  • Complimentary continental breakfast and lunch will be offered at the center’s lounge.
  • Personal computers and Wi-Fi connection are available in our patients lounge for your convenience.
  • Should you require overnight accommodations, special discounted rate arrangements have been made for EHW clients with several nearby hotels. Most out-of-town clients will arrive the day prior to the examination, as testing begins early in the morning. Please contact your EHW coordinator to arrange reservations under our special rate.
  • Arrangements for the pickup of our Executive Plus patients is available, as well as discounted rates for our EHW clients.
