Page 2 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, MARCH I 2015 Me ical Minute:. What00 the, teal with private screenings? - By Mandi Johnson, MD, MPH PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Dr. Mandi, I re- ceived a flyer in tile mail about a private health screening event at my church. This seems like a good idea, but it is a lot of money. 1 feel like I am ill good health & I really want to keep it that way. Can you give me advice about whether or not I should attend this event? How do I know what tests 1 need to have done? Thanks, I. M. Healthy Dear Mr. Healthy, What a great question! Private health screenings are becolning more popular. You can pay money to have lab or imaging tests done to find medical problems. You may see this as a good way to take charge of their health. But, if you ask your family doctor. they will likely cringe. So. why do these events frustrate medical providers? When you talk to lne about health screening, I use guidelines & your personal medical information to determine what tests are needed. These tests are typically covered by your insurance. When you go to a private health screening, this is a business that is try- ing to make money! They may recommend tests that you don't need. Or even tests that vour insurance would pay for. How can a test hurt you? Well, if I spend money on a medical test that isn't needed I would be frustrated that it cut into my Caribou coffee budget! But, there is no test that is 100% perfect. If your test result came back as abnolTnal, it may lead to more tests or proce- dures. This may cause you umaecessary anx- iety, increased radiation exposure, allergic re- actions, kidney problems, etc. On the other hand. if your test came back as normal but you are having symptoms, you might think your First Care Health Center Park River, ND FRE Diabetes & High Blood Pressure Screenings March 16th 9 pm Call 284-7555 for an appointment Dr. Mandi Johnson will be providing the free screenings by appt. on March 16th only # First Care Health Center Park River, ND body is healthy when there is actually a prob- lem. My advice to you is to skip the private health screening event & save your Caribou coffee money! Make an appointment for a physical with your doctor. At this visit, your medical provider will discuss what screening tests are fight for you. You might be surprised to know that depending on the patient your insurance will pay to screen for carotid artery disease, abnormal heart rhythms, abdominal aortic aneurysnas, peripheral artery disease, & osteoporosis. These tests aren't right for every single patient. We'll make sure that you know why we are ordering the test & that you un- derstand the result. Do you have another question for me?
