We Work Hard to Keep You Healthy

Preventum is a new direction in medical care.We are an integrated multidisciplinary facility that is committed to delivering high quality personalized care. At Preventum we focus on maintenance of vitality, performance and health by defining how well your body is functioning, and what potential it has. We then work with you to design a targeted health plan to maximize on your health performance potential and minimize potential for illness.

At Preventum, we believe good health begins with being proactive and preventing illness rather than reacting to disease. This requires the use of a multidisciplinary team that focus upon one unique patient at a time to provide the tools and facilitate the thoughts, behaviors, and actions that will serve to maximize that individual’s health potential as well as prevent future disease and disability.

We Believe in Relationships

At Preventum, we have created one of the most comprehensive annual checkups that includes gathering of all your medical history, learning about your behaviours, risks and goals, identifying any symptoms of early illness, and  supplementing this with a complete  physical exam and advanced screening and diagnostic tools. This comprehensive exam gives us an insight into your state of health and allows our doctors and wellness team to work with you to reach your optimal performance.

Weight Loss for Life

A multidisciplinary, hands on, medically supervised approach to weight loss with the aim of providing you with the tools and the support to allow for long lasting physical and mental health maintenance. Preventum combines a multi-phase system where patients move through a succession of very low calories diets. In the intensive phase, the focus is on establishing routines and reducing weight by diet, which is very closely monitored and managed by a physician. The intensive phase is followed by the functional phase where behavior, exercise, and an insight into eating habits is examined; with the assistance of coaches, new routines are established. In this phase, the goal is to help individuals make optimal choices for their health. This is then followed by the maintenance phase, which is designed to support you as you take charge of your health. The different programs comprise a combination of these phases. Your initial assessment allows us and you to decide what program is best suited to you and allows us to assess your level of readiness.

Intensive & Lifestyle Program

$100 / week for 26 weeks + $250 initiation fee

Quick 10
