Lifeline Screening is the ultimate screening entity for people who are on the go, who don’t see a doctor regularly, or cannot afford the cost of doctors. Lifeline is an independent company who provides health screening and tests on a more convenient and cost-effective basis. The screens and tests are the same as one finds in a hospital or a medical testing facility.
There are not as many people visiting doctors on an annual basis anymore. People in many situations seem to just take their state of health for granted. They reason that if they are having no symptoms, then their overall health must be good. That is not always necessarily true because some of the more serious health situations have little to no symptoms at all in their earlier stages.
This is why Lifeline Screening plays such an important role in the health of people who are too busy, just don’t think about getting checkups, or can’t afford them. Lifeline screening is easy to use, as they are located in major cities in easy to access places such as schools, public venues, and other easily accessed places. The pricing is very reasonable as well.
All a person has to do is call Lifeline Screening in their area and set an appointment and instructions will be given over the phone. One area of advice a prospective patient receives is how to prepare for the Lifeline Screening appointment. Women should wear slacks and a loose fitting blouse or top. Men should wear comfortable trousers and a sports shirt. People will be asked to raise their blouse or shirt in some tests, such as an EKG or ultrasound test.
If a person is going to have a blood test, they may be asked to fast for a 6 to 12 hour period prior to the test. The screenings usually only take an hour or two so people don’t have to spend their entire day. The screenings are the same as those that are given in hospitals and other medical facilities. The personnel who administer the tests must have the same education and experience as one would find in hospitals and other appropriate medical offices.
