The 2012 St. John’s Community Health Fair Prostate Screening Clinic will be held Tuesday, May 1, 1pm – 5 pm, and Wednesday, May 2, 8 am – Noon. The screenings will be held in the Oncology Department at St. John’s Medical Center by appointment only. This screening is free for men over age 50 or age 40 if there is a family history of prostate disease.
The screening is a digital rectal exam performed by a physician or physician’s assistant and is a quick and safe way to look for signs of cancer. Urologist Lisa Finkelstein, DO, and Michael Rosenberg, MD will perform the exams. Call the Community Health Information (CHI) Center at 739-7244 to schedule your Prostate Clinic appointment.
A PSA blood test is recommended prior to the screening. If you haven’t had this test in the last 6 months, it is available at St. John’s Medical Center for $20.00 through April 30th as part of the Health Fair blood wellness screenings. To schedule a PSA blood test call 739-7531.
