Our Screening Guide

We maintain that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A good screening program could improve your quality of life, in fact, it could save it. In order to achieve this, our clinic's specialists have worked out special screening programs. This multi-specialty program ensures complex examinations of common, yet often symptom-free, hidden illnesses.
