PREVENTATIVE HEALTHCARE PROGRAM – MEDICAL EXAMINATION
Recognizing the limited time a busy and responsible person has, CAPITAL CLINIC RIGA offers standard check-up programs that examine the most important body organ systems in a short period of time without staying at the hospital. Insofar as every person is unique and often requires an individualized program, we supplement our standard check-up with specific targeted examinations and consultations. We individualize our programs depending upon age, state of health and a client's wishes.
We offer five level programs - Standard, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, including a variety of examinations and consultations to evaluate person's health status depending on the age, gender, lifestyle and other factors.

More and more people understand the importance of preventative healthcare as it relates to the quality of life. However statistics show that there is no such thing as an absolutely healthy person, or at least their numbers are miniscule. Almost everyone in their lifetime succumbs to illness and seeks a physician’s help. It is a great feeling when, after recuperation, a person can return to a normal and full life. It is unpleasant when an illness becomes chronic or untreatable. And in today’s quick moving world illnesses tend to appear unexpectedly and are fast moving.
Check-up program is also like a very important component of perception of life or philosophy of life for responsible people. People responsible for both - their own life and health and the life and health of their family and loved ones. Such responsible people should always be healthy and cannot afford to lose the quality of their life. And health is most certainly one of the most important components of the quality of life
In order to prevent unpleasant surprises and to avoid the consequences of an irreversible illness, it is recommended that everyone, especially those over the age of 40, should have preventative healthcare medical examinations or check-ups (this concept is well known in developed countries – regular medical examinations are one of the main reasons why the life expectancy of inhabitants of developed countries exceeds that of Latvia’s inhabitants by 10-20 years).

Individualized check-up programs allow evaluation of each client’s state of health and, when needed, to begin treatment. It is best to uncover diseases, changes in health, deviations from the norm, risk factors, and to avert them as effectively as possible.
A check-up supervisor monitors a client’s examination process, following a specially prepared program, and when required, involves specialists and determination regarding the inclusion of exams not in the check-up. The whole check-up program is aimed at identifying possible health risks as early as possible. Illness indicators uncovered in a timely fashion helps assure that the sickness does not spread and can be treated as soon as possible.
Physicians recognize that people do not seek medical help immediately when symptoms first appear, waiting until there is pain, discomfort, serious complaints. People forget that most serious illnesses begin without pain or other symptoms. We often hear, “They discovered cancer, but he was always the picture of health, no complaints, and the examinations were clean.” Unfortunately even a preventative physical examination cannot guarantee that after a month a person does not become ill. But regular medical exams afford a physician to observe a client’s health and evaluate if since the last exam there have been any negative changes in indicators, decline in health, etc. A check-up program assures that there is the opportunity to catch relevant changes to a person’s state of health.
The check-up program is perfect for the modern, health conscious person who has a busy work schedule and who values his time, because all health examinations can be done in a short time without having to stay overnight.
CAPITAL CLINIC RIGA has unique technological and diagnostic methods that combined with the professionalism and competence of the best physicians ensures the ideal opportunity to evaluate a client’s state of health.
Research and surveys have shown that many people view their life style and state of health as being better than they actually are. That means that a large segment of our society, especially men, are under the illusion that they are healthy and all is well. Unfortunately medical specialists know that often, especially around the age of 50, many experience unpleasant surprises, sudden serious illnesses, frequently together with a decline in quality of life. These are often brought upon by work related stress, psychological stress, a sedentary lifestyle, a lack of rest and relaxation, excessive alcohol usage, smoking, an unhealthy diet, etc.
