Screening Preparation

All of our ultrasound screenings are non-invasive and painless, as is our EKG for atrial fibrillation, also called irregular heartbeat. Even our blood screenings only require a simple finger-stick and few drops of blood.

Our screenings also require very little or no preparation. While some screenings involve several hours of fasting, others only require loose clothing or short sleeves. We try to make it as easy as possible for our customers to take control of their health. Check below to see if there’s anything you need to do before your screening.

  • If you take medication, take it as prescribed.
