Advances in men’s health have helped to increase male life expectancy in Canada from 79.4 years in 1979 to 81.1 years in 2009. However; men’s life expectancy still lags that of women. As such, men need to pay close attention to their health – particularly to cardiovascular disease and cancer.
As part of the Ongoing Medical Care Program, ExecHealth’s men’s health program is uniquely designed to assess and address issues specific to our male clientele. Our goal is to identify preventable health problems and address them at an early stage.
Our men’s health team is able to provide the most current testing and advice on a range of male health issues including andropause (a decline in testosterone which can affect sex drive, muscle and bone health, energy and mood), erectile dysfunction, benign prostate hypertrophy and prostate cancer.
ExecHealth recognizes that women have specific health concerns that may not be routinely addressed. That is why we have developed a protocol specific to our female clients, and are able to address individual needs.
Our women’s health team is able to provide the most current advice on a range of women’s health issues. Although our protocol is tailored to the needs of the individual, our female clients can expect the following to be included in their annual health assessment:
- Gynaecological examination
- Breast examination
- PAP smear
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Breast cancer, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer risk evaluation
- Work-life balance and stress counselling
- Counselling and testing related to menopause, menstrual syndrome, fertility, osteoporosis, etc.
- Iron deficiency screening
- Mammography (> 40 yrs)
Our women’s health specialists are further able to provide procedures such as IUD insertions / extractions and endometrial biopsies onsite.
Teen / Young Adult Health
Adolescence (ages 10-19) and young adulthood (ages 20-24) represent two critical stages of growth in which health choices can have a lasting impact on one’s life. These stages also represent a time in one’s life when social pressures may cause individuals to engage in behaviours that can jeopardize their health and safety.
In addition to providing thorough medical care, ExecHealth’s physicians understand that young people may need extra time to discuss other issues that may impact their physical and emotional health. Our physicians take time to discuss issues such as smoking, sexual health and mental health with young adults and remain available via telephone and video chat if clients are away at school or travelling.
Should mental health intervention be required, ExecHealth’s in-house psychologists are expert in dealing with young adults and work with directly with our physicians to provide coordinated care.
Life can be demanding at the best of times. However, there are times when having the services of a qualified psychologist can be crucial in navigating difficult situations.
ExecHealth is pleased to offer counselling services to individuals seeking to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, somatic symptom disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and related conditions, personality disorders, and neurocognitive disorders including dementia and traumatic brain injury. Whether your goal is to reduce distress or increase well-being, therapy can help you lead a more productive, fulfilling, and peaceful life
We are also pleased to offer specialized neuropsychological assessments for adults concerned with having neurocognitive disorders and for the purposes of medical assessments and medico-legal decision making.

Whether your goal is to control a medical condition such as high blood pressure, cholesterol or heart disease, decrease your weight, get an edge on sports performance or simply to increasing your energy level; proper eating is essential. ExecHealth offers several nutrition packages tailored to the specific concerns of our clients, and works to accommodate their busy schedules.

- total body water

Medical Concierge Service
ExecHealth’s medical concierge service works to expedite surgeries, specialist appointments and imaging on behalf of ExecHealth clients. Your concierge can help navigate the public system or provide private options when public wait times are too long.
Our belief is that quality care cannot be hurried and treating multiple patients at one time reduces the level of care. ExecHealth physiotherapists see only one patient at-a-time and do not delegate treatment to support staff. This highly focussed attention, utilizing only proven techniques, results in superior care and results.
ExecHealth is pleased to offer video or telephone appointments to clients enrolled in the ExecMD Ongoing Care program. These virtual appointments are conducted by ExecHealth’s own physicians and offer a convenient and socially distanced alternative to an in-person appointment. Of course, not all medical issues can be addressed virtually. In-person follow-up appointments can be booked on the same-day or next-day if a physical examination or diagnostics are required.
