A 30 minute appointment is usually needed for special medical examinations except for motor vehicle license examinations where (for our enrolled patients) 15 minutes is usually long enough. It isn't usually possible to deal with other health matters during a special purpose examination.

A calculation of cardiovascular risk can be made and goals set for health protection and promotion if needed.
