Prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, is a protein produced by cells of the prostate gland. The PSA test measures the level of PSA in a man's blood.
 

Flu Vaccination

A needle injected shot given in the arm to help prevent the spread and contraction of Influenza A and/or B. The type of shot administered depends on the particular strain in the area each year.

Vitamin D

This blood test measures for Vitamin D defiency and helps monitor osteporosis treatments and immune function. Vitamin D helps you to maintain strong bones, helps your muscles move, helps your nerves carry messages, and bolsters your immune system so you can fight bacteria and viruses.

The 25-hydroxy vitamin D test is the most accurate way to measure how much vitamin D is in your body. In the kidney, 25-hydroxy vitamin D changes into an active form of the vitamin. The active form of vitamin D helps control calcium and phosphate levels in the body. 



Bone Density

The Bone Density test is a heel scan that checks for signs of osteoporosis.

 

Fit Kit

The Fecal Immunochemical Test or FIT Kit is a take home kit to check for blood in the stool. It is an annual screening tool used to detect precursors for colorectal cancer.
