  • Blood Count Screening $25.00

  • Blood Pressure Screening
    This screening gives you your blood pressure reading. Blood pressure is the force in the arteries when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and when the heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). Blood pressure can fluctuate with exercise, injury, illness, and emotional reactions. Health care professionals check the participant's blood pressure. If the participant's blood pressure falls outside normal ranges, further evaluation by a healthcare provider is encouraged. Your blood pressure should not exceed 119/79. Pulse Screening is primarily measured on the participant's wrist. The pulse corresponds to each beat of the heart. The normal number of pulse beats per minute in the average adult varies from 60 to 80, with fluctuations occurring with exercise, injury, illness and emotional reactions.

  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) (Persons with a Prostate) $35.00
    The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has recently recommended against routine screening of persons with a prostate with the PSA test. Please speak to your healthcare provider if you have questions. PSA is a blood screening that measures a protein that is only produced by the prostate gland. Elevations of PSA may occur in persons with non-cancerous prostate diseases or prostate cancer. A normal PSA level does not entirely exclude the possibility of prostate cancer. A traditional manual screening, performed by a health care provider is strongly encouraged in conjunction with PSA screening.
  • Testosterone $40
    Testosterone is an androgen, or a sex hormone, produced by both males and females. In males it is produced primarily by the testes, in females, the ovaries account for half of the testosterone in the body. Women have a much smaller amount of testosterone in their bodies compared to men, but testosterone plays an important role throughout the body in both men and women. It affects the brain, muscle mass, fat distribution, the vascular system, energy levels, genital tissues, and sexual functioning. Symptoms of low testosterone in males include, decreased body hair, decreased muscle mass, low sex drive and erectile dysfunction. In women, symptoms of too much testosterone can be irregular or absent menstrual periods, infertility, development of facial and body hair and a deepening of the voice. Any abnormal value should be discussed with your health care provider to determine the underlying cause of the abnormal value.
  • Vitamin B12 - $20.00
    Vitamin B12, has a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and the formation of red blood cells. It is one of eight B vitamins. Lower levels of Vitamin B12 can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. At levels only slightly lower than normal, a range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor memory may be experienced. Pernicious anemia is also caused by low Vitamin B12 .Taking Vitamin B12 usually corrects symptoms that are caused by a low level.
  • Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Screening $50.00
    This screening is used to provide you with a baseline level of Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as a worldwide problem. Your body requires Vitamin D to absorb calcium and plays an important role in protecting your bone health. Many studies also suggest an association between low Vitamin D levels and an increased risk of certain types of cancers, nerve disease, immune disease and heart disease. Some Vitamin D is produced in your skin when unprotected skin is exposed to sunlight. Otherwise, you can obtain Vitamin D in foods or take Vitamin D in supplement form. Studies have found that many adults have low Vitamin D levels. This screening requires only one blood draw. Results will be included on the same report with your other blood draw results. If you already take Vitamin D you should have a blood level drawn to make sure you are taking enough Vitamin D.
