An Executive Physical May Ease Your Mind During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has catapulted our world into unprecedented times. With a commitment to stop it from spreading, you want to protect yourself and others from getting the virus.

That’s why you should pay attention to your health, especially now, to keep your body well. We encourage you to be proactive to stay ahead of the game.

At Coral Gables Executive Physicians in Coral Gables, Florida, we understand the importance of keeping your body well. Our board-certified internal medicine and primary care physician, Robert H. Thomas, MD, FACP, and the rest of our team offer comprehensive care and testing. We’re here to help you fight the virus and keep your immune system strong.

For a full physical exam, we offer an executive physical package that includes testing for COVID-19 and extensive testing for your entire body. 

COVID-19 testing

When you come in to see Dr. Thomas, we can test you in several ways. Molecular and antigen tests require a nasal or throat swab. An antibody test requires a finger prick or the drawing of blood. 

The timing of results vary in length from one hour to one week. Depending on your type of test, we can let you know when your results should be in.

Additional testing

To understand the health of your body, all-inclusive testing can help identify areas that need attention and get to the source of any issues.

Our executive physical package offers the following:

Heart

We use a cardiac stress test to look for blockages, an EKG to check the rhythms of your heartbeat, and an aorta scan to test the strength of your aortic wall to make sure you maintain healthy blood flow.

We also offer a cardiac risk evaluation to evaluate your cholesterol and see if you have any inflammation, which can lead to stroke or heart disease.

Lungs

We use spirometry to check for anything that could affect your breathing, such as COVID-19, pneumonia, or asthma.

Immune system

We check your blood cell levels to determine your immune system’s strength or weakness. When it’s strong, your body can ward off sickness, disease, and viruses.

Blood

To make sure your blood levels are where they need to be, we test you for vitamins and minerals. We also check your blood uric acid to learn your risk for gout.

Our executive physical package also includes tests for your liver, kidneys, bladder, bones, gut, and thyroid. 

Understanding the health of your body can lead to a diagnosis and treatment for most conditions. Dr. Thomas offers the highest level of expertise and care to not only get your body healthy, but also to keep it well.

To schedule an appointment for COVID-19 testing or a comprehensive physical, contact us to see Dr. Thomas and our team. Call 305-446-9940 or request an appointment online today.
