Visited Executive Health in Puerto Banus for a heart CT scan as there is a history of heart disease in my family. I am 44 yrs old now so thought it would be better to know in advance than suffer my fathers fate of a triple bypass! The equipment at the clinic was the latest technology, no going into a claustrophobic tube scanner, just a doughnut shaped machine that moves over your body (for want of a better description!).
Dr Henrik Reinhard the CEO who I saw was fantastic, he certainly takes his patient care very seriously. A heart scientist and specialist he really is top of his game. The scan itself was quick and painless and I had the results the following day. I’m pleased to say I don’t carry my fathers genes and I had a complete bill of heart health, which was wonderful and very reassuring. However, during the scan an anomaly in one of my lungs showed up and is currently under further investigation, most probably an infection, but good to get to the bottom of it. I would never have known if I hadn’t had the scan. If you have a family history of heart problems then I would definitely recommend Dr Reinhard and his team, better to find out in advance than suffer the consequences of a heart attack in the future. It’s incredible how you can just pick up the phone here and get an appointment so quickly, back in the UK you’d wait forever! Executive health also offer a full body MOT if you want everything checked, extremely thorough. I was happy with my heart scan for now, but maybe in 10 years time I will start the full checks. Highly recommended. Health is your number one asset!
