Wellness Open Labs to Check Health Numbers
Burgess Health Center has scheduled wellness screening lab times every Wednesday from 6:30 - 9 a.m., except for holidays.
Individuals may choose to have any combination of the four different tests offered. The most common test is the cholesterol panel that costs $10. Participants must fast for 10-12 hours before this test for accurate results.
Others tests available for $15 each are the A1C (diabetes screening) PSA (prostate test) and TSH (thyroid test). These three tests do not require fasting.
“The blood tests provide a cost-effective opportunity to monitor good and bad cholesterol and glucose that need to be regularly monitored,” says Bobby Hassman, director of the Burgess laboratory.
Persons wanting to participate in the open wellness labs at Burgess in Onawa must pre-register by calling 712-423-9363.
