All too often men neglect their health until a serious problem arises. We offer screening for early diagnosis of heart disease, skin, bowel and prostate cancer.
We strongly encourage men to have a two yearly men’s health check (Well-Mens Check) from age 40 with one of our Wellington GPs.
Well-Mens Checks include:
weight and body-mass index
pulse and blood pressure
skin examination for melanoma
heart check and cardiovascular risk assessment
urine test for diabetes and kidney disease
ECG, eyesight test and audiology test where indicated
blood tests including a complete blood count, liver and kidney function tests, blood glucose, cholesterol, thyroid function and PSA (prostate specific antigen)
We also offer advice regarding:
depression and other mental health issues
sexual health issues
