Our Success Stories
Hi, my name is Lonnie.
I'm 61 years old and have been going to Medpoint for five years for the Platinum physical.
Two years ago during the stress test, Medpoint detected that my heart muscle was abnormally thick, but had no negative impact on my heart function. However, one year later when an echocardiogram was done, the thickening had progressed.
It had progressed so much in one year, that it was now blocking the blood flow out of the heart. The pressure in my heart was dangerously high.
The echocardiogram tech notified the cardiologist immediately and the cardiologist had the knowledge and experience to determine the cause of the problem.
That very same day, I was sent to the correct specialist for treatment.
Thanks to having the physical completed every year and the expertise of the cardiologist, Medpoint saved my life!
It is important to be proactive every year for good health!

Hi I'm Brian & this year I turn 40.
I joined Medpoint's 13-week program with long-term health in mind. I have two young children I want to see grow into men.
Earlier this year, I was experiencing concerns with my heart and mental health. Smoking, job & life stresses had me worried. I've learned that my heart is okay and that my issues were panic attacks.
Since starting at Medpoint, I've significantly reduced my smoking, with a goal to quit within the year, and I've not had any onset of panic.
Also, I've learned that I was eating far less than I should, and not the right, healthy foods to reach my goals. And although I've only lost 4 pounds, I've dropped 14% body fat. I've not felt this good since college!
Making these changes is not a solo journey. Medpoint's expertise can help guide you.To anyone that thinks Medpoint may be out of their budget, I say poor health costs so much more. Aren't you worth it?
Brian - Fitness Client
Hello, my name is Catherine and I've been a Medpoint Health Care member since 2010.
My husband and I started with the Executive medical. Part of the program was to meet with the fitness team and a nutrition specialist.
I had hip joint problems and had my first replacement in 2013, with a second just 5 months ago. Thanks to Medpoint training I was fit and had maintained flexibility. I was able to return to the gym in less than 4 weeks.
My Medpoint trainer focused on medically integrated exercise, using the results of the annual Medpoint medicals to provide specific, individualized exercises. I am already back to doing lunges, planks and weights in the gym.
My physiotherapist is delighted - most hip replacement patients are still having trouble getting out of a chair!
Medpoint has given me the confidence to not only rehabilitate but to be stronger and fitter than pre-surgery. Take the first step and call Medpoint today.
Hi my name is Tom.
I decided to join Medpoint as a member after celebrating my 60th birthday, with the realization that I needed to make some significant changes in my lifestyle to stay healthy for the years to come.
Strength training has provided me the ability to carry out chores with significant ease, and just feel stronger overall, compared to before.
The nutrition plan laid forth at Medpoint has assisted in adding some structure to meal times, and also allowed me to go about my day with greater energy.
I have already lost 20 lbs., but more importantly, I'm down 5% body fat, which has helped with my breathing.
Through Medpoint's fitness program, I've also improved my aerobic fitness, which in turn will reduce my risk of cardiovascular disease.
And perhaps the best part, I will soon be able to reduce my blood pressure medication!
Thank you Medpoint for continuously improving and maintaining my health.
