We help you live longer.

14 prime years. That’s what you stand to lose if you’re among the 1 in 3 Americans who die early from cancer, heart disease or stroke.

You can control only half of your risk with a good diet, fitness and regular checkups. The Modern Physical takes care of the other half.

Routine Health Care

Getting your annual checkup is still better than not getting it, but a regular physical is typically cursory and technologically outdated… by itself, it’s not enough.

Exercise

Being active is vital for maintaining cardiovascular health and our testing guides you to choose fitness activities that will most improve your health. But one-third of heart attacks and strokes happen in healthy individuals considered to be at low risk.

Good Diet

A nutritious, well-balanced diet is important and our testing directs you to target risks and problems through diet choices. But more than 75% of cancers are random events that are unrelated to what we eat or do.

The Modern Physical

The Modern Physical does what nothing else can: with advanced technology it finds unsuspected problems before symptoms arise, while they are curable. And it empowers you to maximize your efforts to stay healthy.

Don’t guess. Test.

The Modern Physical protects you by finding problems early, when the chance of cure is greater. It uses the most sophisticated medical technology available—imaging, biochemistry and genetics—to search every part of you for major issues that regular physicals can miss.

The Modern Physical is a testing-only program of advanced medical surveillance designed to supplement the basic testing of your regular check-up. Using the latest biochemical, imaging and genetic tools, it provides an in-depth look at every aspect of your health to help you and your current doctor keep you healthy… to help you live longer.

It’s fast.

In less than three hours, you will undergo a seamless session of medical surveillance tests. During that session, all blood testing, body imaging and heart testing will be completed. Your Modern Physical concierge will meet you at the center, facilitate your testing, and answer any questions you may have. Within ten days of your testing session, results will be communicated securely to you and, if you wish, to your doctor. During a post-visit telephone discussion, one of our Modern Physical physicians will summarize and explain the results of your testing.

It’s smart.

We will keep track of the results of your testing so that, as your next annual physical approaches, a new personalized testing program can be designed for the following year. As our knowledge of you builds, your annual testing program becomes even more focused on your medical issues and vulnerabilities.

It’s easy.

At the Modern Physical, we are ready to assist you throughout the process. We will help you get started, contact you to schedule testing sessions, and manage the logistics of your evaluation. Our goal is to provide you with a seamless, educational, personal and valuable experience.

It’s affordable.

The cost of the Modern Physical is $1,950. It is designed to assess you progressively over time. We collect the most important information in your first testing session. Much of the information we obtain about you has lasting value, so that in subsequent years other data can be acquired. Of course, some activities, such as surveillance for many cancers, are best conducted repetitively each year.

Modern Physical testing is advanced and is not covered by medical insurance. We can, however, help you to obtain reimbursement through your flexible spending account.

The David Drew Executive Physical provides an unparalleled one-day evaluation of your health. You undergo a thorough interview and examination by a David Drew Clinic physician, followed by an enhanced version of the Modern Physical, our state-of-the-art medical surveillance system that individualizes the latest biochemical, imaging and genetic tests to your needs. Whether you are a group or corporate member, an individual residing at a distance, or someone who seeks top-notch health surveillance while obtaining ongoing care elsewhere, the David Drew Executive Physical program is a valuable asset for keeping you healthy… to help you live longer.

The Experience.

The process starts with a brief telephone interview with your personal David Drew physician to gain familiarity with your health status and concerns. Using Modern Physical computer-assisted algorithms, your physician will generate a unique, individualized program of surveillance.

You will then undergo a seamless half-day session at the David Drew Clinic. That includes an in-depth medical interview and physical examination with your David Drew physician, and a personalized and enhanced version of the Modern Physical surveillance program of biochemical testing, body imaging, cardiovascular evaluation, and genetic analysis (if desired).

Soon after your testing session, results will be posted in your patient portal and will be communicated to you during a post-visit telephone conversation with your physician. During this 30-60 minute session, your doctor will present and explain the results of your testing. A plan will be developed to mitigate risks or problems identified by your evaluation.

We will keep track of the results of your testing so that, as your next executive physical approaches, a new personalized testing program can be designed for the following year.

In short, David Drew Complete Care looks after you during the entire year with the goal of optimizing your health… to help you live longer.

The Complete Experience.

The process starts with a brief telephone interview with your personal David Drew physician to gain familiarity with your health status and concerns. Using Modern Physical computer-assisted algorithms, your physician will generate a program of surveillance to be completed during the upcoming year.

You will then undergo a seamless half-day session at the David Drew Clinic, comprising an extensive medical interview, physical examination, biochemical testing, body imaging and cardiovascular evaluation.

Shortly after your testing session, results will be communicated to you in a follow-up visit with your physician. During this 60-90 minute session, your doctor will present and explain the results of your testing. A plan will be developed to mitigate risks or problems identified by your evaluation.

Depending upon your medical program, you may be asked to undergo supplementary testing midway through the year, to assess critical parameters that should be measured more often than annually. That testing will be arranged at the David Drew Clinic or at a conveniently-located testing facility.

Your David Drew physician is available to serve as your primary care physician. There is no additional cost during the year for primary care services, including medical consultations and visits, prescriptions, and standard vaccinations. Your David Drew primary care physician is available to you 24/7.

We will keep track of the results of your testing throughout the year so that, as your next annual physical approaches, a new personalized testing program can be designed for the following year.

Convenience.

A David Drew physical is like no other experience you’ve had in a doctor’s office. When you’re here, you’re the only patient. You’ve got our undivided attention. And you have the use of a phone, fax or anything else you might need to stay in touch with your home or office.

Appointments start on time, tests are expedited and administrative matters are done for you in advance. Most diagnostics are conducted in a half-day or less in our facility and we make sure you won’t have to wait. Because there is no patient overlap, our two- to four-hour sessions afford an extraordinary doctor/patient relationship.

In the event of a medical question or problem, we provide 24x7 assistance. Your personal physician will consult with you immediately by telephone or by a visit to the clinic. In case of a serious or out-of-town emergency, your personal David Drew physician will always be available to consult with other treating physicians. With your permission, your complete medical summary can be transmitted instantly to other physicians, emergency rooms and hospitals.

Optional membership in an air ambulance program provides you with prompt, first-class care no matter where you are. This service provides you (and a companion if space is available) a medically-equipped Learjet transport worldwide to the hospital of your choice upon a physician’s order.

Cost.

The annual cost of the David Drew Complete Care program depends upon the testing performed, and usually ranges from $4,500 to $5,000. It is determined in advance of your visit. Discounted rates are available for families, for corporate and group clients, and for timely renewal in subsequent years. Payment options are also available. Contact us for details.

Our health care benefits service will assist you in filing a claim with your medical insurance carrier, if you so desire. Reimbursement is dependent upon your policy and typically covers 10-50% of the program fee.

The Modern Physical helps you live longer. Watch.

Here’s the problem.

In America, one-third of adults die early. They lose, on average, 14 years of life. Between 45 and 65, your risk of dying is about 1 in 7. And by 75 it's 1 in 3. Almost all early deaths are due to common problems: heart disease, stroke, cancer.

of American adults die by age 65

of American adults die by age 75

Why do we need a modern physical?

The vast majority of early deaths can be prevented if the underlying problem is caught early. But most are not.

Because today’s “standard” physical doesn’t look hard enough. As you may have noticed, it has changed little since physicals became common in the 1950s. That’s despite astounding and life-changing advances in medical and information technology in the last half century.

At the laboratories of the David Drew Clinic, scientists from MIT, Berkeley and NIH have spent the last two decades developing a physical to find out what’s really going on inside of you. We exhaustively tested the performance of standard and emerging medical diagnostics. We analyzed how well they predict or detect problems individually and when combined with other tools.

The result of that intensive effort is The Modern Physical, a sophisticated window into your health, optimized for you by an intelligent, computer-assisted decision algorithm.

The Modern Physical finds out how much heart disease you have. It seeks to uncover every cancer while it’s still curable. It uses your genomic profile to predict problems and then helps to avoid them.

And it works! In a 10 year clinical trial of the Modern Physical in adults ages 45-65, the death rate among participants was only 1 in 100, a 13-fold improvement over usual medical care.
