Vitality Medical Clinic is excited to announce its “Executive Health Assessment Program” (EHA) for residents and visitors of Cap Cana. Vitality is backed by “The Wellness Corp” from Canada that owns 5 specialty medical clinics in Toronto and has over 100 doctors and specialists working for them that are now available for local consultations.
In the EHA program, Vitality will be offering its patients, among other things, a full physical exam including comprehensive blood and genetic testing, cardiac health assessment, body composition analysis, and much more. This program will expand medical services that are now available to residents and visitors of Cap Cana. Vitality accepts all insurance plans (both local and international) and has several medical doctors and specialists working under one roof.
We interviewed, CEO of Vitality, Amar Nijjar, and asked him a few questions:
Q. How is Vitality different than a typical clinic in the Dominican Republic?
A. Our focus is on disease prevention. Of course, if a patient comes in with a disease, we have all of the doctors and specialists available to service the immediate needs but our foc
us is on long-term health of our patients. We firmly believe in an “Integrative Approach” to medicine. We have successfully implemented similar philosophy in our Canadian clinics for the last 10 years and delivered superior health care to our patients. 20,000+ patients have been treated at our Canadian clinics with great success and we hope to offer the same level of “Canadian Healthcare” standard to locals. The level of care we offer can be described in one sentence – “We are the Four Seasons of Medical Clinics”.

Q. What are your services?
A. We offer medical doctors, OBGYN, Minor Procedures, Pediatrician, Nutritionist, Psychiatry, IV Therapy, medical-grade supplements, Massage, cosmetics, urologist, cardiologist, Gastro among other services. We also offer Yoga, Meditation related services. We believe in a combined approach to care for mind, body, and soul.
Q. Can the patients show up anytime?
