Direct Benefits

At MDDirect, we go above and beyond your expectations to deliver the ultimate healthcare experience. Here are some of the ways our personalized health program can BENEFIT you.

Comprehensive Annual Assessment

Includes a thorough history and detailed examination by your personal physician. Results and recommendations are presented in a personalized annual Treatment Summary. Each recommendation is reviewed and explained by your own doctor and integrated with your overall treatment plan.

Diagnostic Screening

Our annual assessment will typically include a comprehensive blood profile and laboratory evaluation, advanced cardiac risk stratification, lung function testing, prostate cancer screening, cervical cancer screening, hearing assessment, and oculovisual testing. As every patient is different, so too are their medical needs. For this reason, we believe in tailoring further investigations to address your individual needs and risks. This may include cardiac stress testing, CT coronary calcium score, low-dose lung CT scan, abdominal/pelvic ultrasound, colon cancer screening, bone density tests (dual x-ray absorptiometry), mammograms, and genetic screening.

Year-round Support from your Personal Physician

Studies have repeatedly shown that continuity of care, or lack thereof, is a key predictor of health outcomes. At MDDirect, your doctor acts as your single point of contact for all of your health concerns. By effectively coordinating your care and constantly being in a position to advocate on your behalf, we ensure that your concerns never fall through the cracks.
