GWC offers comprehensive Wellness or Longevity Evaluations. Our Longevity Evaluations are designed to help our patients increase their longevity. But as important as increasing lifespan, we also want to help you increase your healthspan, your years of life spent enjoying optimal health and wellness. We intend to move beyond yesterday’s catch phrase “60 is the new 40” to today’s “90 is the new 60!”
We have two Longevity Programs designed to help you reach your goals – Our Standard and Ultimate Longevity Evaluations.
Each of these evaluations includes a combination of tests and consultations with our professional staff to enable you to maximize both your lifespan and healthspan. Different levels of testing are included depending on whether you choose the Standard or Ultimate Program. Our programs zero in on the following (an italicized test included exclusively as part of an Ultimate Evaluation):

Ongoing Health Collaboration
A 12-month membership in one or two of our “mini-concierge” wellness programs is included with your Longevity Evaluation. Our clinic has developed these mini-concierge programs to provide ongoing follow up, testing and regular communication between you and our providers.
Studies suggest the interventions used in our POW™ (Program for Optimal Wellness) Program may be able to reduce risks of the two leading killers, cardiovascular disease and cancer, by as much as 50 percent. The BAM™ (Best Aging Male) and WAP™ (Women Aging Perfectly) programs are designed to optimize hormone levels. Membership in these programs includes ongoing blood testing (that can be done in your home city), provision of program medications and supplements and in-person or videoconference visits with one of our healthcare providers every four months. A one-year membership in both these programs is included with the Ultimate Evaluation. Membership in either POW or BAM/WAP is included with the Standard Evaluation. This helps assure your ongoing collaboration and connection with our clinic.
Dr. Grossman has also developed one of the best longevity programs in the world that he has named the SAFE™ (Stay Alive For Ever) Program. This is an extremely sophisticated and comprehensive life extension program that begins where the Ultimate Program leaves off. Membership in the SAFE™program and in the associated 120 Plus Club™ will be offered for your consideration to Ultimate Program patients.
