It is sad that many people don’t go to the doctor very often as they feel that if they are having no symptoms it is not necessary for them to go have a check up. If they are feeling good why pay the money as they must be OK.
That is a very unstable and flawed outlook on their state of health because most of the more serious health conditions show little to no symptoms while they are just taking hold. It is a scientific fact that if a condition or disease can be found, diagnosed and dealt with in the early stages, then there is a much better chance of curing it.
That is the philosophy of Lifeline Screening as they offer high-level medical screenings and tests that are designed to catch these “unknown” conditions before they become a problem. The tests are the very same procedures that are given in hospitals or medical testing centers, and they are available at a much lower cost.
It is easy to schedule an appointment with Lifeline Screening in a day or two which is so much better than having to go see your personal doctor, and then be referred to a testing facility. That process can take weeks and you can get your screenings done in a day or so.
When you set your appointment, the receptionist will give you some instructions so that you can make most out of your tests. For example if you have a blood test, you will be advised to fast for 6 to 12 hours prior to your testing time.
Wear clothing that is comfortable and loose fitting. Women should wear slacks and a loose fitting blouse or top. Men should wear trousers and a sports shirt. Certain tests will require you to lift your top up so the test can be done. Ultrasound screening and the electrocardiograph will require this.
The testing and screening procedures usually don’t take longer than an hour or two, depending on the extent of screening you wish to have done. Once you are finished, you will receive a summary report that can be taken to your doctor.
