HEALTH SCREENING / HEALTH SCREENING CLINICS
women's health screening also available with your Gynecologist

So you have hit a certain milestone in life and realise that health should not be taken for granted. Is health check up or screening for you, especially when you feel you are rather healthy compared to some of your friends who have contracted certain ailments ? The answer is a 100% yes ! All men and women reaching a certain age should at least have a health screening done even when they feel they are completely fine. So you are on the right track.

If you are female, studies show that you are more open to a health check up. This might mean a complete health screen or a visit to your regular gynecologist for at least a pap smear or mammogram. The men are tougher to crack. Sometimes they have to be dragged to the doctor's clinic.

If you do not reside in Singapore and need a health screening done, make sure that you email or call to find out the exact components of the screening package. Be specific in your requests and get as much material as you can before you make the trip. Ask for the cost breakdown and any other miscellaneous costs that might be incurred. Get an idea of how long the tests will take and when you can get your reports to access if you need any medical treatment after the health check. Be aware that the cheapest is not necessarily the most cost effective. Screening packages may be prices according to test components and the prices may also reflect the quality of the laboratory services used.
