What to expect

A health and wellness deep-dive

Receive a head-to-toe evaluation by a range of world- class health experts, including a physician, dietitian, fitness expert and nurse—all over the course of about five hours. In advance of your appointment, you’ll have an option to include one or more add-ons to your assessment including, but not limited to, genetic screening, a Cardiovascular Risk Assessment and a Liver Health Assessment.

Between tests, head to our lounge for a nutrient-packed break- fast or lunch, snacks and beverages from the Nourish by Medcan menu, curated by Executive Chef Jason Smidt and Registered Dietitian Leslie Beck.

Same-Day Results and Insights

Your experience includes a private one-on-one consultation with a Medcan physician—one of the most valuable aspects of our Annual Health Assessment. Together you’ll review your results to determine which areas of your health can be improved upon through lifestyle changes, and which may require further medical attention.

Unparalleled Post-Care

Should any health concerns arise during your assessment, we’ll either book an appointment for you with a Medcan specialist or refer you to a preferred specialist in your community. If your physician recommends it, we can also connect you to respected health experts at top global healthcare centres following your assessment.

Simple and Actionable Reporting

Your assessment results will be available through myMedcan—our secure online portal—in the days following your assessment.
