Bryan Health is partnering with Community Hospital-Fairfax and Family Medicine Clinics to bring affordable vascular screenings to a site near you. The following tests can be scheduled by calling (660) 686-2317 or visiting the hospital’s website at www.FairfaxMed.com:
Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart arrhythmia, affecting 2.7 million Americans. Cost: $10
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound Screening: This painless, non-invasive screening detects the presence of an aneurysm in the abdominal aorta. Cost: $40
Peripheral Arterial Disease: A painless, noninvasive test called the ankle-brachial index (ABI) compares the blood pressure in the ankles to the blood pressure in the arms to determine how well blood is flowing. Cost: $20
Carotid Artery Ultrasound Screening: This painless, noninvasive screening detects plaque deposits in the carotid arteries. These plaque deposits are a leading risk factor for stroke. Cost: $40
Because you asked…Many other mobile screenings visit our communities and provide a very valuable service. Some patients have asked our providers if it is necessary to provide your Medicare card at these screenings. Since most of the screenings are fee for service at the time of your appointment, there is no reason to provide your Medicare card.
If you have questions about the Bryan Health screenings or other mobile companies in the area, please take a moment to visit with your provider. To schedule an appointment for the Bryan Health Vascular Screenings at Community Hospital-Fairfax, call (660) 686-2317 or visit www.FairfaxMed.com
