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 three- to four-hour session at the David Drew Clinic, comprising an extensive medical interview, physical examination, blood 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.
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.
At David Drew, we are ready to assist your throughout the process. We will help you get started, contact you to schedule testing sessions, and manage the logistics of your experience. Our goal is to provide you with a seamless, educational, personal and valuable experience.

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.
