At La Vie Health, we aim to build a healthy relationship with all our patients; a relationship based on early detection of disease, reducing risk factors, enhancing lifestyle modifications, reversing the aging process, setting up a Health Action Plan, and to work hand-in-hand with you to achieve your goal… Sure enough, WE ARE YOUR PARTNER IN HEALTH.
Our ultimate goal is to detect early any medical alerts that a regular exam will not include until the medical problem has presented itself, and when sometimes, it is too late. We are committed to providing you with the most advanced and highest standard of health care available anywhere.
You lead a busy lifestyle, you have a set of financial and professional goals, and you are determined to get there. However, you did not include your health and wellbeing in your goals because your family doctor did not set a Health Action Plan for you and did not set milestones for each achievement. At La Vie, WE WORK DIFFERENTLY…
La Vie’s health team will perform a seven-step Comprehensive Wellness Assessment. This 7-step assessment can be completed in one day or can be divided into two days depending on the patient’s preference.
The goal of La Vie’s one-day Comprehensive Assessment is to provide individuals and families with a complete and progressive Health Action Plan for their total health and wellbeing. It is an advanced plan based on a preventive and proactive approach including medical screening and testing to early detect medical alerts, improve our patients’ wellbeing, and help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Our team of preventive and wellness specialists will put their extensive expertise and advanced diagnostic technology to prevent or early detect cancer, cardiovascular disease, endocrine and metabolic disease and any other health or lifestyle-related medical problem.
Our approach goes far beyond just early detection and disease prevention, it analyzes all signs of biological and biochemical aging processes and implements a personalized any aging medical therapy utilizing the knowledge and experience of our medical experts in anti-aging medicine.
Our medical approach is based on strict and medically advanced Female Health Protocols and Male Health Protocols, and includes two phases:
The patient will receive a Preparation Package via mail or electronically via e-mail. The patient will review and complete all the required information and return it back to La Vie before the date of his/her assessment.
At La Vie Health Centre, the first phase of the assessment will start with these 3 steps:
- History and risk stratification review: 30-45 minute-A detailed history and risk stratification review for life-threatening illnesses. This step includes head-to-toe body organ review, past medical history, past surgical history, medications allergies, family medical history, cardiovascular and cancer risk evaluation screening.
