I have a doctor. Why do I need Life Line Screening?
The purpose of preventive screening is to identify risk for chronic disease so it can be addressed before it progresses any further. Your doctor will manage any steps that need to be taken after you receive the results from your preventive screening.
How long has Life Line Screening offered these services?
Life Line Screening has been in operation since 1993 and provides services throughout the contiguous United States. Since inception, we have screened over 10 million people.
What screenings can I get if I use a wheelchair?
If you are able to stand and support your weight, we can administer all our available screenings. We can assist you with turning around and sitting on the table and then assist you to help you lie down on the exam table. You are welcome to bring an assistant to help you.
Are there weight limits for the screenings?
Yes, our equipment is usable for people up to 500lbs. However, it is important that the individual can move on his or her own, or with the help of a family member or friend and can lift themselves onto the beds. Our staff cannot be responsible for lifting customers.
Will there be doctors at the screening site?
No physicians are on site. Just as in hospitals, the ultrasound is conducted by a qualified technologist and shared with the doctor afterward for review.
What is the time frame for receiving the results of my colon cancer screening kit?
Approximately 30 days.
Are you affiliated with any hospital?
We are a non-referral vascular screening service. We partner with 72 local hospitals across the country, but your medical information is kept private. All information and preventive health screening results are sent directly back to you to share with your own physician.
I work during the day. Can I schedule a screening later in the day?
We try to accommodate people’s work schedules with check-in times that are early in the day or during lunch. We also often offer later weekday screenings as well as some screenings on Saturdays.
