Your health-checkup

It is easier to maintain a good health with regular exercise and adequate nutrition, than to regain it once it is lost.

The importance of medical check-ups extends beyond the scope of disease prevention. 

With an increasing complexity of professional demands, health check-ups are a worthwile investment for companies. They increase the health and productivity of employees, reduce absenteeism and deliver a positive return-on-invest within only a couple of years.

For individual patients, a Prevention First check-up is the way to  efficient and practicable measures in order to maintain and improve health and quality of life.

Prevention First is the lifelong principle for a mindful and active lifestyle. It helps each individual gain more quality of life and ensures that a company will have more efficient employees.

Experience the benefit of the Prevention First principle.

Since 2001, Prevention First has been offering preventive health check-ups. Our recommendations are based on the latest evidence about the prevention of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, cancer and mental illness. 

For us, our patients are partners at eye level. Each of our specialists takes care for no more than three patients per day. The time we can devote to each patient is our big advantage.

We explain medical issues in a language which everybody will understand. Our nutrition recommendations and exercise prescriptions are tailored to the individual preferences and needs of our patients.

The Check-Up benefits summary

Your health in the focus of our efforts

The Prevention First health check-up starts at 8.00 in the morning and ends around 3.00 in the afternoon. Your personal doctor will accompany you through the whole check-up day. 

Based on the medical questionnaire which you have completed in advance, he will discuss your family and personal health history.

After a physical exmination and the ultrasound scan of the abdominal organs, you can enjoy a healthy breakfast of your choice. 

Next, your doctor will examine your heart and your carotid arteries by colour-doppler ultrasound. Finally, an exercise test on the bycicle will determine your aerobic fitness and allow your doctor to give you an individualized exercise prescription.
