WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A SCREENING?
Before your health screening, Magdalena will review your personal medical history, your family medical history, and your lifestyle behaviors, for example, if you smoke, consume alcohol, and your dietary and exercise habits.
During your screening, Magdalena will take her time to complete a full examination tailored to your specific needs to find any and all red flags or problems that need to be addressed. This is your opportunity to discuss how often these screenings should be scheduled according to your family history, any concerns you may have, and what you can do to reduce your risk of disease.
WHAT SCREENINGS DO YOU OFFER?
Depending on your age and possible health risks determined by your family medical history, Magdalena will recommend what screenings are most suitable for your specific needs.
Below are some of the medical screenings we offer at Crescent Health:
- Pap Smear
- HIV and STD testing
- Body Mass Index
- Blood Pressure
HOW WILL I GET MY RESULTS FROM MY SCREENING TEST?
With our easy to use electronic health records system, you can privately access all of your medical records and results online as soon as the results are in, and can access your records 24 hours a day.
Magdalena will also have a follow-up phone call or appointment with you to discuss your results, any questions you may have, and the next steps in your health plan.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SCREENING DETECTS I HAVE A HEALTH PROBLEM?
If any of your medical screening results suggest or detect any health concerns, Magdalena will carefully discuss and explain the results of your test, discuss any and all concerns and questions you may have, and recommend the next step in your follow-up care.
ARE MY TEST RESULTS CONFIDENTIAL?
All medical records are considered highly private and confidential. Only you will receive the results of your medical screenings unless you (the patient) gives written permission to your provider to share your medical records with a family member.
DO I NEED TO TRAVEL TO A MEDICAL FACILITY FOR A SCREENING?
Although several of the screenings we offer at Crescent Health can be performed during your home visit, some screening tests require additional equipment that would require visiting one of our medical facility partners, such as an imaging center for x-rays, ultrasounds, or MRI scans.
Ask our friendly staff about any questions you may have. They are more than happy to help.
