Frequently Asked Questions
Should I have my doctor send over my medical history?
Though not required, you are encouraged to have your primary care doctor forward your medical history to us for review prior to your visit, especially if you have or have had complex health conditions. If you choose to send your records, please complete the Authorization for Release of Health Information form, which is legally required to release your medical records to you or designated recipients.
What other forms do I have to fill out?
As part of the program registration, you will be asked to fill out a short Health History and Nutrition Profile.
It is designed to capture an overview of your health and identify key habits and lifestyle factors that may impact your well-being. These inputs will inform the physician’s recommendations for your specific itinerary during your visit as well as for designing an ongoing health management program tailored to your individual needs.
What is the Stanford Executive Medicine Program?
The Stanford Executive Medicine Program is designed to complement your current healthcare resources and provides a comprehensive view of your medical condition—through a range of specialized medical services—and a tailored health plan to ensure you are optimizing your overall health and wellness, independent of a specific medical condition. You gain direct access to your physician and will be provided with a personal "Health Navigator" who will help guide you through the entire process.
Our range of services allows our highly trained team of physicians to fully understand your complete health situation, including potential future risks and concerns. Considering your Health History, Nutrition Profile, any current health symptoms or concerns, physical examinations, and customized itinerary of lab tests and procedures, your physician will provide a realistically achievable plan, built specifically for you, that outlines simple steps towards reaching your ongoing health goals.
