What to expect

Forty years ago, Everett DeVault was launching a successful career with General Electric Co. As a young executive, Mr. DeVault chose Mayo Clinic's Executive Health Program and has been coming back every year since. Over the years, Mayo Clinic's Executive Health Program discovered three separate health issues and performed lifesaving procedures. Due to this care, Mr. DeVault is now 92 and enjoying a healthy retirement on his ranch in Kansas. He credits Mayo Clinic for his health, and what he holds dear are his relationships with Mayo Clinic.

"At this point, these folks are like family to me." — Everett DeVault

The Executive Health Program combines Mayo Clinic's traditional diagnostic expertise with recent developments in preventive medicine — all designed to get you in and out efficiently and back to what you love.

Your dedicated physician is actively involved throughout your entire evaluation process. Your evaluation starts when you arrive with a comprehensive review of your medical, family and social history, along with a complete physical exam.

Next, you and your physician will discuss your specific customized itinerary as well as any additional tests or consults that may be appropriate for you. Your itinerary will reflect both our assessment of your medical needs and your expressed preferences.

During your visit, you'll be seen at different testing areas throughout Mayo Clinic. A typical visit can last from one to three days.

After completing your itinerary, you'll meet with your doctor again to review your results together, and you'll discuss any next steps. If needed, diagnostic services or treatment can leverage the full depth and medical rigor of Mayo Clinic via access to specialists or further recommended follow-up.

A summary of your results can be mailed to you or made available in your secure online patient portal shortly after your final visit. A letter outlining these results also can be sent to your local doctor.
