The physician exam is at no charge. A $10 laboratory fee will be collected for the PSA blood test.
The screen will be conducted by appointment only. To schedule a screen, call the Cancer Center at 765-655-2581.
The screens will take place from 9 a.m.-noon, with Dr. Pravin Patel and Dr. Robert Nelson, and from 4-6 p.m., with Dr. Keith Landry in the Outpatient Specialty Clinic on the first floor of the hospital.
