OTTAWA, Nov. 28 /CNW Telbec/ -
Why? Because spending hard-earned money to keep their minds and bodies in
tip-top shape is as important as investing their earnings to keep their homes,
vehicles and cottages well maintained.
Ottawa residents ranging from office workers to executives are using the
services of the new La Vie Executive Health Centre in Ottawa where the medical
team led by Dr. Hassan Sannoufi has developed a comprehensive wellness program
for individuals and families that's designed to detect medical problems before
it's too late.
The centre is the first of its kind in eastern Ontario.
For their money, La Vie patients receive a far more intensive check-up
than most family doctors deliver during a relatively brief 20 to 30-minute
The La Vie physical is a head-to-toe five-hour medical assessment
completed with state-of-the art equipment. It includes a review of all
previous medical conditions and health care records, stress testing, heart,
hearing and vision tests, a comprehensive diet and fitness assessment and (if
needed) an electronic second opinion from physicians at global facilities such
as the Mayo Clinic and Harvard Affiliated Hospitals.
"All too often more attention is paid to automobile maintenance than to
protection of personal health," says Dr. Sannoufi, MD, CCFP. "Our ultimate
goal is to early detect any medical alerts before a medical problem has
presented itself. Some of these alerts may be missed by a routine medical
examination. Our patients say we are giving them good value for their money."
The benefits of the La Vie wellness program are numerous:
- access to a team of leading edge medical practitioners and equipment;
- assessments and testing under one roof, eliminating the need to visit
other clinics for blood work,
(*) Diet assessement using the state-of-the-art Inbody machine, fitness
assessment and other tests;
- by detecting illnesses at an early stage busy patients avoid multiple
visits to other doctors, saving valuable time and money;
- following their assessment, patients and their health care providers
can access patients' medical records at any time and from anywhere using
secure, Web-based applications.
La Vie offers a membership package that gives patients year-round access
to the health centre for medical care and La Vie's extensive range of
integrated services, including a diet and fitness programs, pre-fitness
assessment, pharmacology review, a travel clinic, a cosmetic clinic and a
health allies network.
