What to Expect
Here’s what you need to know to make the most of your visit:
Before Your Periodic Screening Appointment
You will be given instructions for any necessary dietary or activity restrictions required pre-appointment. Please note that special requests and certain tests or consultations may require additional time or a separate appointment.
The Day Before your Appointment
Please be sure to follow any special instructions given to you by our clinic coordinator. For example, you may be advised to avoid caffeine or refrain from exercising. Laboratory tests require fasting, so please refrain from eating and drinking, except for water, for 12 hours before your registration time. Prescribed medications can continue to be taken, but please notify us if you have diabetes when scheduling your appointment.
On Your Appointment Day
Please bring the following with you to your appointment:
- Passport or Emirates ID or any form of ID
- A copy of your current medication list
- A copy of relevant medical records, imaging results and adult vaccination records
- Glasses or contact lenses (if required)
- Sports clothes and shoes for endurance test (optional)
Periodic Screening Progress
Your dedicated doctor is involved throughout your entire medical evaluation process. When you arrive, your doctor will evaluate your medical questionnaire, review your medical and family history, and perform a comprehensive physical exam. Next, you and your doctor will discuss your customized plan for the day and any additional tests or consultations that may be appropriate.
On the Day of Follow-up
You will meet with your doctor to review and summarize your test results. Based on the chosen program, you will receive a comprehensive email report which will include all of your medical findings and test results, as well as recommendations for addressing potential health risks and improving your well-being through lifestyle choices.
