Clinic for medical screening
Clinic for preventative medicine: preventative medical screening
Prevention is better than cure.
The main purpose of preventative medical screening – preventative medicine, is to allow early detection of disease and to undertake timely treatment if necessary.
In general any disease which is discovered at an early stage is easier to treat. Preventative screening investigates whether there are any conditions present which are still in the early stages.
Preventative breast screening is widely known but is limited to the breasts. Preventative screening is also possible for other parts of your body or bodily functions.
If necessary we can prescribe treatment or refer you to a specialist.
Wellness' is one of our chief concerns. It is important to stay healthy. Prevention is better than cure!

We plan your entire medical screening programme in the shortest possible time.
We coordinate all the specialist tests with VIP priority. You don't have to travel back and forth.
We ensure specialist tests on the same or consecutive days.
At the intake consultation the doctor will assess each patient's needs.
You undergo standard tests to assess your general health. You will undergo a physical examination, an ECG and complete blood analysis.
To the specialist
Following the initial standard check-up the doctor can determine if further tests are necessary.
You may be referred to a specialist diagnostic or medical centre.
Your hormones influence the performance of your organs. We can assess the performance of your thyroid, pituitary gland, pancreas and adrenal glands.
Your heartbeat is examined with a heart monitor. The cardiologist can also assess your heart's performance during exercise.
The lung specialist assesses the performance of your lungs. Your lung function is extremely important for your general health.
We can examine your blood vessels by performing a duplex Doppler ultrasound of your veins and arteries. You bone density and calcium levels are measured to screen for osteoporosis.
We use diagnostic mammography to screen your breasts. We can examine your organs using digital ultrasound.
RX tests can be used to screen your skeleton, heart and sinuses. The radiologist can also examine your organs using an RX contrast agent.
We keep digital records of all radiological tests. If you wish we will provide you with a printout of each one.
When all the tests have been performed you return to the kliniek for a follow-up consultation. The doctor collects all the specialist results and will determine whether you need further treatment.
If you need further treatment the doctor will prescribe a treatment or refer you to a specialist in your neighbourhood.

The government is trying to promote a healthier society. It’s not just about preventing illness, but also about promoting a healthier lifestyle. Although our health has improved greatly over the last 150 years, currently this progress seems to have come to a halt .
Overall the government is not doing enough.
Fortunately many people take things into their own hands, and visit a doctor or a clinic specialised in preventative medicine.
CT scan or MRI scan
Commercial companies often advise patients to have a CT scan or MRI, even if it is not necessary. It gives patients a false sense of security.
A Total Body Scan is misleading.
A CT or MRI scan is a valuable screening method, but only for certain areas of the body and only if it is absolutely necessary.
The health and wellness of yourself and your employees is crucial for the profitability of your company.
Being overweight is an important risk factor. It can lead to heart problems, high blood pressure and diabetes.
We can help you to lose weight, under medical supervision.
If, despite everything, dieting doesn't help to reduce your weight and your excess weight presents a danger to your general health, one solution could be a stomach reduction.
Heart and arteries
Disease of the heart and blood vessels are the main cause of death in the Western world.
Regular check-ups and timely treatment are recommended to identify any risks and treat them in time.
A Cardiovasular Screening can help with this.
Depending on your age, background and lifestyle, a number of Lab tests are unnecessary or inappropriate.
Our basic blood tests already provide us with a lot of information. Only then do we consider whether additional tests are useful.
We collect enough blood and urine the first time to carry out further tests, if the first tests reveal that this is necessary. This means we don't have to take more blood or collect more urine a second time.
Total Body Scan
A total body scan does not exist. We can screen for certain risk factors, with a sound scientific basis.
Each screening has its limitations and one can never guarantee with 100% certainty that there is no disease.
A second opinion is a new, independent assessment of a physical complaint, illness or diagnosis. A second opinion can be useful if there are any doubts about a diagnosis or uncertainty about the prescribed treatment.
Don't hesitate to ask us to help you by giving a second opinion.
Cancer complaints or symptoms are mostly experienced only when the disease is fairly advanced. Often the complaints are not particularly disturbing or distressing.
We offer effective preventative investigative techniques which can detect the early signs of certain cancers.
Preventative medical screening is especially recommended for people with high risk factors.
Food Intolerance: Blood test
Recent scientifc research shows that food intolerance - sensitivity to certain foods can be linked to various complaints such as:
- Obesity / abdominal bloating / fluid retention
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrom
- Diabetes mellitus type II
- Rheumatic complaints

- Certain skin diseases
- Chronic stomach-intestinal complaints
Osteoporosis - Bone loss
Osteoporosis screening doesn' t just involve extensve blood analysis, a total hormonal report, DEXA bone density scan and DEXA body composition analysis, during which we also examine other risks which are associate with osteoporosis.
Tailor-made osteoporosis therapy requires a complete, specialised pre-examination.
Osteoporosis screening helps to evaluate the state of your health, and if necessary, to detemine the appropriate therapy.
Radiography - Doppler - Bone Density Scan - Ultrasound
A picture sometimes says more than a thousand words, this is also true for medical imaging.
During your screening we can make use of the latest digital imaging techniques to map the condition of your vital organs and skeleton and to look for possible abnormalities.
Your doctor will only prescribe or perform those tests which are necessary for you.
Our doctors adhere to strict ethical standards and norms, and will inform you about what you can, and especially what you can not expect from preventative medicine.
