So, what to expect from the executive check-up? Although it was my first time to do this executive check-up, my husband already shared his experience of having an executive check-up. He said that it is a comprehensive check-up with some kind special treatment. The clinic will assign a nurse or a clinic attendant to fully assist you with the completion of the check-up. And yes, he is right. I have my own clinic attendant throughout my prime check at their newest branch – MyHealth clinic Robinsons Place Manila.
In my experience I did the fasting from 12A.M. last August 4, 2017 to 10 A.M. the next day. I went to MyHealth clinic on August 5, 2017 at 9:30 A.M for registration and vital signs. At exactly 10 A.M., they extracted blood from me for the laboratory exam. I suggest you set the earliest schedule at 7 or 7:30 A.M. so that you’ll be done early too.
MyHealth clinic Robinsons Place Manila is located at 3rd Floor Mezzanine, Pedro Gil Wing Robinsons Place, Ermita, Manila. If you are coming early before the mall hours, you have to show your MyHealth clinic card or any proof to the security guard that you have an appointment at the clinic. The parking entrance is at the Padre Faura, then you park at the fourth level parking.
I was accompanied by my husband and he comfortably stayed in the executive lounge while waiting for me. I wear exercise pants and rubber shoes for the treadmill stress test.
I’m glad that for the blood extraction, it’s quick, comfortable, and no pain with just one needle insertion.
For the imaging services, I am done with the Chest X-ray, Thyroid Ultrasound, whole abdomen ultrasound, and breast ultrasound. The ultrasound examination started from my whole abdomen, breast, then to my thyroid. There is a monitor display attached to the wall adjacent to where you can visibly see the ultrasound scanning while they are undergoing the ultrasound examination.
Before we began the whole abdomen ultrasound, the radiologic technologist checks the water intake level in my stomach. Abdominal ultrasound is used to check the major organs in the abdominal cavity. These organs include the gallbladder, kidneys, liver, pancreas, and spleen. She examines my bladder when I’m on the urge to urinate. I was advised to urinate completely and empty my bladder. This time, I have submitted my urine for urinalysis. Then, after I urinated, she checks my bladder again if my bladder function is normal. Thank God! It is in normal function. The doctor sonologist will carefully do the ultrasound scanning so expect a little bit of a long process in this examination. You’ll be requested to inhale deeply and hold your breath while they scan a specific part of your abdomen then exhale.
Same with the breast ultrasound, that enough time is needed for the sonologist to carefully examine it. I remember adjusting my body partly sideways for the doctor’s suggested position for the breast ultrasound.
The thyroid ultrasound scanning has the shortest time for the ultrasound examination since the area to examine is small.
All ultrasound scanning they did have tagging, caption or labels. From the smallest cyst to the complicated ones, they noted the remarks. This way, you’ll have the advantage to know if there is something that you should monitor for your health. It is actually scary on the part when you find out that there is something wrong in your body. But, a positive sign on the bright side of what you can do to prevent or stop it from progressing to a risk in your medical condition.
After the complete ultrasound examination, MyHealth clinic provided a food for me. During that time, their partner for the breakfast voucher is Starbucks only. I requested a healthy meal choice at Kenny Rogers Roasters and thankful they approved it. I suggest you choose high fiber foods such as salad and meal with veggies. So that it will be easier to poop for the stool examination:
I spent my lunch time at the executive lounge with my husband. After a few minutes, I’m happy that I was able to poop and submitted it for my stool examination.
After lunch, I took the 2-D echo with color doppler. The examination took about 45 minutes. What is 2-D echo? This examination is to determine the size of your heart, to evaluate how well your heart is functioning or pumping and to assess the structure and function of the valves within the heart. I was asked to remove my shirt and put on the lab gown. I lay on the examination bed. The technician applied a colorless gel to my chest. The transducer will be moved back and forth across your chest to obtain several views of your heart. I actually took a nap during the examination.
Another lying position for the test is the ECG. What is ECG or Electrocardiogram? From googling, An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test which measures the electrical activity of your heart to show whether or not it is working normally. An ECG records the heart’s rhythm and activity on a moving strip of paper or a line on a screen. I feel a little relaxed while doing this Resting Electrocardiogram.
Lastly, the treadmill stress test. What is a treadmill stress test? The treadmill stress test is an examination, which can determine if you have heart disease. I changed my top to a comfy shirt for this treadmill stress test. The trained technician performs the test. There are four stages of the exercise test. My heart fills with joy when I completed up to stage 4. Thank God! The test results are normal.
For MyHealth clinic Prime check results, you can have the soft copies emailed to you or secure the hard copies from the clinic. I have mine in two days and since I returned to the clinic for my papsmear examination, I got the hard copies too. When I got the results, a doctor evaluated and explain the results to me.
After the completion of my MyHealth Prime check, the attendant thank me for the completing it. She gave the Wellness kit included in the MyHealth Prime Check package. These are MyHealth Care PLUS Card, Spa Massage Voucher, Shoe bag, Tumbler, Face towel, hand sanitizer, and a hotel voucher for an overnight stay at one of MyHealth’s premium hotel partners. You can choose from Discovery suites, Luxent hotel, Crimson hotel, and Summit Circle in Cebu.
