Why is Knowing Your Numbers So Important?

Screening Numbers

Knowledge is Power! When you own your health, you are taking control of your life and your future. You could gain peace of mind knowing that the way you are feeling is actually what is happening inside your body. You could also find a health issue that you did not know about and have no symptoms of. Detecting any health issues before they become severe can add years to your life and save you thousands of dollars.

How Does A Health Screening Work?

A health screening is designed to be an easy and convenient scheduled assessment of your health. When you arrive you will be greeted by a clerk who will sign you in. They will ask you to fill out a consent form and Heart Screening Results questionnaire. This fingerstick screening takes approximately 10-15 minutes for each participant. The goal is to provide you with information on…

  • Height/Weight/Waist
  • Body Mass Index and Body Fat %
  • Blood pressure
  • Total Cholesterol
  • HDL
  • LDL
  • Triglycerides
  • Glucose

The results are instant and your nurse will provide you with some helpful information to
take home.
