Health Care Screenings FAQ
How long does it take to get the results of a health care screening?
Some results can be almost instant, like a blood pressure screening. Other screenings that require lab work or special testing may take longer, with many lab results able to be returned within two weeks. During your consultation, we can talk to you about the different return times of our various health care screenings.
Does a health care screening hurt?
No, most of the testing isn’t even invasive. Other health screenings require a blood draw, so that means a small amount of blood needs to be taken via syringe. But even a blood draw causes only minor discomfort and is over quickly.
How often should I get a health care screening?
The majority of physicians and medical professionals suggest yearly physical exams, especially for women over the age of 21. During a routine exam, we may recommend various types of screenings depending on your current health and/or symptoms. Health care screenings can be done any time you are experiencing concerning symptoms or simply want to gain peace of mind.
How should I prepare for a health care screening?
Our staff will provide specific instructions based on the type of screening. This may include fasting before a blood test or special preparations for certain diagnostic procedures.
What happens if a screening indicates a problem?
If a screening suggests an issue, our team will discuss the results with you and recommend further tests or treatments as needed. Early intervention is key to managing health conditions effectively.
