Jun 18, 2023

This is another in the regular series with Dr Francois Fong of Neo-Health Group in Hong Kong, which deals with issues related to sexual health and general health matters as well.  We hope it will contribute to public education about health and help viewers, both women and men, learn about prevention and treatment for the benefit of their own health.  Today we are looking at the various personal health screening check-ups that people do on a regular basis.

Talking Points

Preamble:  Though NHG is known as being Asia’s leading sexual health specialist clinic, it also provides the full range of general health check-ups for all.  We look at the various health tests and make suggestions what people should consider doing on a regular basis based on age and other criteria.

  1. Let us focus first on adults (over 18). What sort of health tests should people have and how frequently?  What is the recommendation for younger people (under 18)?
  2. Are health tests solely physical tests on the individual or are other issues reviewed?
  3. What are the advantages of testing with NHG as opposed to another clinic?
  4. What happens if you ‘find something’ during a routine health test.  Can you deal with surgery and other issues in-house or do you refer to another centre?
