If you are over 35,experts say that you should go for a health check-ups once a year. Most packages include routine tests such as blood sugar, urine, pathology tests such as blood group, test for diseases of the liver, heart, kidney and diagnostic tests such as X-ray of chest, vision and so on.
Consult your physician or local GP.Depending on the kind of program you want to opt for the specific medical condition that needs to be focused on, he'll guide your choice.
Identify the hospital that offers the package that you're looking for. Do adequate homework - read brochures, check websites, consider your GP's recommendation and most importantly, ask your friends and acquaintances if they've opted for such a package.
Once you decide on a package, draw up a list of questions; call up or visit the hospital.
Check the credentials of the doctors who will be evaluating you.
Since a general package may take an entire day, check if it includes food and refreshments. Morning tests may require you to fast, but later you need to eat, so as not to affect later tests.
Before you enroll for a package, verify if further consultation advised during the check up is charged separately.
Post check-up, the doctor might refer you to further treatment to the specialist in the hospital. Take a second opinion from your GP or the specialist you usually visit before you rush in.
