The ideal type of screening for people under the age of 40.
This screen has been carefully designed to address the main health risks for this age group and to focus on prevention and positive health.
You might want to consider a more extensive medical if you know that you have other risk factors in your family history or lifestyle. If you are not sure you can discuss further tests with the doctor when you know the results of the screen, to help you decide what is right for you.
The consultation and testing time is 30 minutes, 45 minutes if you are a woman and have a well-woman screen. We ensure the majority of your time is spent with the doctor, not with technicians. So you will have plenty of time to discuss all your health concerns.
