In today’s hectic and overscheduled world, it can be hard to take the time to focus on one of your most precious assets, your health. An Executive Physical can provide you with a comprehensive look at your health and can help you with early identification or prevention of a wide range of medical issues.
American Physicians Network (APN) can help you find and access qualified physicians in other countries who offer Executive Physicals. These doctors have received their country’s highest standard of certification and completed extensive training, including advanced fellowships.
What is an Executive Physical?
While Executive Physicals are so named because they are marketed to company executives to help ensure the health of their top talent, they are not limited to just CEOs and CFOs. Everyone can benefit from affordable, streamlined testing while avoiding insurance hassles for common exams and tests.
There are multiple levels of executive physicals; from a straight-forward cardiac screening, to a more detailed, multi-system evaluation to specialized and in-depth physicians for patients with specific pre-existing conditions. At APN, we are here to assist you in finding the best executive physical to meet you health screening needs consistent with your family and personal medical history. By using a customized approach, we can limit the amount of unnecessary testing/ and exposure to radiation or other screening risks while still providing a comprehensive health screening at an affordable price.
Health Travel Options for Executive Physicals
An Executive Physical usually takes place over a 1-2 day period. Other services might include vision and hearing tests, nutritional counseling and a dermatology consultation. At the end of your personalized exam, your physician will review the full report of test results with you and discuss next steps.
Low-energy X-rays are used to examine the breast for diagnostic and screening purposes, with the goal of detecting breast cancer early.

After reviewing your patient history, the physician may recommend specific screenings, ie: chest X-rays, CT scans, etc.

How Much Does an Executive Physical Cost?
The cost of an executive physical in the United States can range up to $10,000. Through APN’s international network of physicians, the cost will be considerably less and determined by the tests covered and travel costs. You can avoid insurance hassles with our up-front cash discount pricing.
Coordinated executive physicals as a comprehensive pre-operative evaluation
Executive physicals are also an affordable and easy “add-on” for clients who are scheduled for elective surgical procedures with APN-affiliated physicians. In this scenario, an executive physical may take the place of pre-operative cardiac evaluations and additional testing, particularly in patients who have had limited access to medical care in the past, a strong family history of cardiac disease or have an elevated risk of peri-operative myocardial infarction (hx of smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, cardiac murmur, or previous CAD). Often, the anesthesia evaluation can be coordinated with the executive physical.
