Basic Health Screening
A Basic Health Screening is one of the most important tests that a person can get. The tests performed during this screening will let the patient know if the blood, kidney, or liver levels are below normal or if they are too high. The tests done during the Basic Health Screening are the Complete Blood Count and the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel. Further work may be required of the patient when the results are returned and gone over by a professional doctor or physician.
