parsippany focus

PARSIPPANY — Parsippany residents will be able to get their annual blood panels on Thursday, September 15 at the Parsippany Community Center for $21.00. The Parsippany Community Center is located at 1130 Knoll Road, Lake Hiawatha.

Called the SMAC blood test, the township offers the program one a year to residents, for convenience. For those people who don’t have insurance, or don’t go to see their doctors as often as they should, MedLabs Diagnostics will be administering the blood screen test. The screen includes numbers for glucose, cholesterol, liver, and kidney function, among other tests. Additional testing, for thyroid, prostate, B12, and hemoglobin, can be done on that same morning for an extra fee.

Twelve hours of fasting is required and patients do need to register in advance, before September 13. Results will be made available to patients and their preferred primary care physicians within 7 to 10 days.
