How can I prepare for my health screening?
Please fast for at least 8 to 10 hours prior to your appointment and postpone any routine morning medications (except hypertension drugs) until after the blood test. Ladies going for a mammogram must not wear any deodorant, perfume or cream under their arms and on the chest area. You may also wish to bring along your past medical records for comparison.
What is the health screening process like?
All health screening appointments start off with a physical examination by your doctor before you proceed for the other tests, such as X-rays and ultrasounds. The whole process typically takes between 1 to 3 hours, depending on the number of tests and package you chose.
How do I choose my health screening test?
You may choose from our range of health screening packages. Each package offers the same basic tests such as diabetes and thyroid screenings but also differs slightly. Common tests for women include a pap smear and mammogram. Common tests for men include prostate and abdomen ultrasounds.
Can I go for health screening during menses?
It is not advisable to go for a health screening while on your period. Please inform the nurses if you are menstruating on the day of your appointment as the pap smear, urine and stool tests cannot be conducted. We can reschedule your health screening appointment to 5 – 7 days after your last day of menstruation.
