Wellness Labs Check Health Numbers
Burgess Health Center and Clinics have scheduled wellness screening lab times on Wednesdays in Onawa, Dunlap, Mapleton, Sloan, and Whiting; and Thursdays in Decatur.
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 prior to 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 monitored regularly,” says Bobby Hassman, director of the Burgess laboratory.
Persons wanting to participate in the open wellness labs at must register in advance by calling the location of their choice.
