I would like my mother to undergo a complete health checkup. She is diabetic. I want her to undergo Heart related tests (she gets tired soon), thyroid, diabetes and other vital organs test. Please suggest and I would like to avail discounts if available for XXXXXXX employees. But it should be a thorugh checkup.
