Physical Exam for Preventative Medicine

When was your last physical exam? Was it last year, 5 yeas ago or maybe never? A yearly physical is a great opportunity to work on preventative medicine, and find irregularities in your health before they become issues.

At a New Leaf Clinic, the doctors can offer a wide range of additional recommended  tests  along with the physical exam.  Here is a list of a few examples:

  • Pap Smear: Naturopathic Physicians are trained to do Pap smears.(Covered by BC Cancer Agency)
  • Occult Blood: A stool sample that is an early screen for cancers and gastrointestional disease.
  • Urine Analysis: Screen for many disorders including kidney damage, diabetes, and bladder infections
  • Spriometer: Screen for  lung function, from Asthma to COPD.
  • ECG: Looks for abnormalities in heart function
  • Blood work: including cholesterol, blood sugar, kidney function, liver function, thyroid function, PSA (for men), CA 125 (for women)  and much more.

Book your appointment to see the doctor, and find a happier, healthier you!
