Health Assessment is a comprehensive overview of all aspects of your health and wellbeing. It is a designed plan of care that identifies the specific needs of a person and how those needs will be addressed by the healthcare system through us at the Zenith Medical Centre.
This service is different from the standard consultation because it is more in-depth and thorough. During the health assessment we evaluate your health status by taking a detailed health history and later undergo a physical examination-including a skin check- by the doctor.
The aspect of history taking is conducted by our experienced Nurse who will then conduct some basic clinic tests like your blood pressure, urine check and respiratory function check. The nurse will discuss the findings of the history taking with your doctor. After the briefing by, your doctor will bring you in for a general examination with a focus on the issues identified during your interaction with the Nurse. He may also explored in more details some of the history the Nurse have documented. Our health assessment takes an average of 90 minutes.
Based on the findings during the health assessment; your doctor may request for some tests and he may also give you prescriptions or other health advise.
