Executive Health Program

South Denver Internal Medicine Executive Health Program at Sky Ridge Medical Center.

The Executive Health Program at South Denver Internal Medicine is separate from our concierge care program. It is designed for individuals who currently have their own doctor but desire a more detailed preventive health examination. The Executive Health Program is geared for corporate executives, business owners, working parents or any active individual whose time is at a premium. This comprehensive examination requires just 3 to 4 hours of your time. The goal of our custom-designed Executive Health Program is to create a unique wellness plan for each individual, identify medical risk factors, and discover potential health problems. You will receive a comprehensive written report regarding your current health status detailing the steps you need to take to improve your health and wellness. This report can be shared with your doctor.

What to Expect

Your appointment will be on two separate days. Plan on being in the office for 60 to 90 minutes each day.

At the first appointment, we will perform your physical examination, blood work, and testing. Please arrive at the office after fasting for at least 8 hours, drink plenty of water only (no coffee), and wear comfortable clothing for your exercise testing. Please bring your completed annual health questionnaire.

The second appointment will be with Dr. Miranda for a comprehensive review of all test results. An assessment of your overall health and recommendations will be provided.
