例行身體檢查

May 24, 2016

 

早前收到一位市民有關例行體檢的查詢電郵。由於來郵是英語,我們回答如下:

 

Dear Ms. A,

 

Thanks for your message.  Here in TY we believe routine medical check-ups have to be professionally done by a doctor, and like any clinical visit, should start with the client’s medical history, followed by a proper physical examination.  Only then can we suggest laboratory, imaging or other investigations, with reference to the following 5 factors:

  1. Family medical history

  2. Past medical history

  3. Present medical issues

  4. Physical findings

  5. Budget

We always emphasize to every single client that a medical check-up is the start of improving their health.  Our doctors will give our clients professional suggestions according to the results of the check-up, and the latter should be prepared to comply with our advice in order to lead a healthier living.

 

Too often in Hong Kong, practitioners or institutions in our field want their clients to believe that routine medical check-ups are just sets of laboratory/imaging tests that can be universally applied to clients of different ages, genders and medical backgrounds.  With this kind of non-clinical, one-size-fits-all approach the practitioners or institutions can make some fast and easy money, but the clients will certainly end up having too few necessary tests and too many unnecessary tests.  Besides, they do not get any proper medical advice to improve their health.  This is not only an undesirable situation, but also professional negligence in TY standard.

 

I’m sure the above has answered most of your questions.  If you need any further information regarding medical check-ups, please feel free to contact me via email again, or call 2388 0191 to talk to me directly.

 

Best regards,

 

Dr Terence Chow

Medical Director

 

 

原文大意:

 

例行身體檢查應當由專業醫生處理。就像診症一樣,醫生會詢問病歷,跟著臨床檢查,然後才根據下列五點建議相關的化驗項目:

 

1. 家族病歷

2. 過往病歷

3. 現存之醫學問題

4. 臨床檢查之發現

5. 費用預算

 

其後醫生會就檢查結果作出適當之專業指示,目的是增進健康及預防疾病。

 

現時坊間盛行一些套餐式的檢查服務,既無醫生設計策劃,而不論年齡、性別、病歷和臨床狀況,各人的檢查項目均相同。這樣,你差不多必然會有些「需要卻沒有做」,以及「不需要卻做了」的檢查,以天一的標準來說是不能接受的。

 

所以,當你想做例行身體檢查時,緊記跟醫生多多溝通,請醫生「度身訂造」一套屬於你的體檢計劃。
