Preventative Health Made Easy While On Vacation

Written by ClinicTrip on May 18, 2018

The summer travel season is approaching and it may be bigger than ever. More people are traveling around the world to exotic locations to enjoy unique experiences from the local cultures and cuisines to postcard style resorts and excursions. Many of these exotic locations also happen to have some of the best international hospitals in the world. It’s a great opportunity for vacationers to spend a couple hours to go through a preventative health screening program without much effort and return home with a complete review of their health.

Now, it may not sound like the most wonderful thing to do on a vacation – going to a hospital and spending time getting pricked by needles and taking urine samples. However, since most people are so busy back at home, it’s actually a very good to do a health screening programs. It only takes a couple hours in the morning with a review with the doctor a bit later in the day and you have a full analysis of your health condition.

If you a haven’t had a health screening at an international hospital and are skeptical about it’s value and if it’s any better than a physical or check up at home, you may be surprised. The health screening programs at international hospitals are very comprehensive and include all blood work, vitals, and heart stress tests, but also chest x-rays, abdominal ultrasounds, cancer marker tests, and bone density analysis. Plus you can add on additional tests such as a colonoscopy, mammogram, or upper GI endoscopy.
