I live in Toronto and am switching my General Practitioner. I have never had a "full" physical with blood tests and scans. I think that this is something I would like to have done, to ensure that I am developing/developed in a normal way, and to identify things that I can change in my lifestyle or diet to improve my general health. I am thinking of a diagnostic test or very comprehensive checkup.
What tests should I request to be performed in order to have a general look at my health? Is this a redundant thing to be requesting? Should I be going to a nutritionist?
I am asking this question because many doctors here in Toronto would like to see as many patients as possible per day and thus sometimes don't have the patients (me) best interest in mind when deciding whether to perform tests or refer to another doctor to be checked out.
