Executive Health standard protocol

The standard testing protocol includes the preventive screening appointments that constitute the core of our program. Mayo Clinic physicians annually review and modify the program based on current scientific research and best practices. Your customized array of screening tests will reflect our assessment of your specific medical needs; in addition, you may request specific optional executive health services.
