An executive physical is a comprehensive physical that goes above just the basics of your health. Most facilities that offer executive physical packages ask that you plan to stay in the area for two or three days to accomplish all of the tests and go over the results with the doctor when the results come back. Called an 'executive' physical because the idea is to reduce medical related absences by covering all of the bases at once. Your executive physical will likely include: review of medical history and current medications and dosage, lifestyle assessment through questionnaire with counseling on lifestyle, exercise and diet, fitness evaluation to check for cardiovascular health with stress test, urine lab analysis, blood panel and count, hearing test, eye exam, and other gender or age related tests as appropriate.
