A Complete Suite of Concierge Care
Preventive care provides the perfect opportunity to discuss and reassess ongoing health issues, address concerns to prevent issues before they arise, and to identify any problems early and take corrective action.
The benefits of regularly scheduled preventive care include:
Tracking Health Milestones
Regular monitoring of weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, kidney and liver function, cholesterol, as well as other physiological aspects of your health such as sleep and nutrition, ensure optimal health and wellness.
Monitoring Psychological Health
Every check-up is an opportunity to discuss topics such as anxiety, depression or other issues you feel may need to be addressed.
Building Healthy Relationships
Regular visits help make you more comfortable with your doctor, which leads to greater trust and ultimately better communication. This becomes especially important with the changes and challenges that aging may bring.
Signature Healthcare members are treated to a personal preventive care plan that keeps them ready for all of life’s demands. We provide an annual health assessment to set your health goals and to evaluate your progress in achieving those goals. Your annual health assessment will include a summary of your comprehensive annual "executive" physical examination (which includes x-rays, blood tests, EKG, and cardiovascular screening), history, related counseling and follow-up services as necessary.
Signature Healthcare travels with you, across the state or across the globe. We will advise you when you’re on the road, ensure you are properly immunized, help prepare your personal medical travel kit, direct you to the closest medical care facility, and call in your prescriptions.
Signature Healthcare understands an executive’s time is valuable so we have created a world-class concierge medicine package to bring you the most comprehensive Executive Wellness Program available in Charlotte. With today’s rapid pace of business, it is easy to overlook personal health until there is a medical crisis. Our Executive Wellness Program offers a simple solution to enhance the health and well-being of your executive team, provided in a private and relaxed environment.
Stay close to home and have your executive physical done quickly and comfortably so that any necessary follow-up can happen without delay.
Lisbet Kan, LMBT, NCBTMB
Lisbet is a North Carolina (#7108) licensed massage therapist trained in a variety of massage modalities. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:
• Swedish Massage: This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
• Deep Tissue Massage: This technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
• Oncology Massage: A special type of massage developed specifically for cancer patients. Cancer patients have unique needs which must be addressed to make sure that a massage is beneficial to their health.
While massage has long been considered part of complementary and alternative medicine, it is increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, muscle tension, and may also be helpful for:
• Digestive disorders
• Insomnia related to stress
• Myofascial pain syndrome
• Soft tissue strains or injuries
• Sports injuries
• Temporomandibular joint pain
Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

Americans spend millions of dollars on vitamins and supplements each year. However, taking vitamins and supplements as a routine health strategy is NOT a substitute for eating a healthy diet. Studies suggested that patients who self-medicate with nutritional supplements (multivitamins, B vitamins, iron and minerals) have a higher mortality rate than patients who don’t take vitamins. This increased risk may be related to high doses of poor-quality vitamins.
Signature Healthcare has patients improve health by improving medication use. This approach does not distinguish between prescription medications, vitamins, and supplements– if they’re being taken for therapeutic use, they’re fair game. While most of us should strive to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and skip the vitamins, for patients who have been diagnosed with nutritional deficiencies – such as vitamin D, vitamin B12 and iron – we offer safe, effective supplements as recommended by our doctors.
