ECE is an outpatient clinic day devoted to screening for fitness and cardiovascular health. We deliver real time test results with the MD at your side. We discover problems you may suspect or be unaware. We also remove barriers to create transformative habit change that leads to prevention of disease and disruption.
Anyone is eligible for the service. An individual can set up an appointment or a company can create an executive account.
We are located at the the Complete Cardiovascular Center (CCC) at 1100 North 18th Street Monroe, Louisiana 71201.
Usually the day is held on a Friday and lasts from 8 am until 1:30-2 in the afternoon. Coffee and snacks are provided after bloodwork and initial testing and lunch is provided.
The ECE team will immediately connect the participant with the appropriate resource such as a provider of their choice within your company's medical plan, or if need be, the nearest medical facility, in order to fully evaluate and treat the problem. Fully trained and accredited staff are on site to address any immediate emergencies that may arise.
Follow up visits will be available at the CCC within 1-5 business days, or at the earliest possible time outside of the CCC for other providers of your choice.
Participants should arrive with loose fitting comfortable clothing and shoes that can be easily adjusted and can be used for walking.
Ideally, because of the morning blood work and walking test, it is preferable to skip breakfast and have only a small amount of water until after the tests. Water, coffee, and snacks are provided. Lunch is also provided.
