Here’s what to expect
The morning of the executive physical, our lab technician will visit you at your room at your hotel prior to breakfast to draw blood and collect a urine sample that will be used in a wide array of screenings. After breakfast, you'll be chauffeured from your hotel and greeted at the front door of our medical facility, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, and our concierge staff will escort you to the Garden West level of the hospital, where your privacy is our top concern. If you prefer to drive or if you live locally, our concierge staff will greet you at the front door of our medical facility and escort you to your destination, where our lab technician will draw your blood and collect a urine sample. Then your physician will sit down with you to discuss your medical history and any special concerns or questions you may have.
