Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick), in conjunction with the Integrated Medical Foundation, will be sponsoring a free prostate cancer screening program in Massapequa Park.
The free screening program will be held on Thursday, April 5th between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm at the Massapequa Library (Bar Harbour Building), which is located at 40 Harbor Lane in Massapequa Park. The free screenings will be conducted by Dr. Michael Ziegelbaum, Dr. Matthew Mene and Dr. Evan Eisenberg from Advanced Urology Centers of New York.
The Integrated Medical Foundation’s guidelines for the program are as follows:
* Open to all men over the age of 40 who have not previously been diagnosed with prostate cancer, regardless of whether or not they have insurance.
* Screenings will include a digital rectal exam and a PSA blood test.
* Men who will be getting screened must bring a photo ID containing an address, such as a driver’s license.
* Patients wishing to be notified of the exam results should bring 2 stamped envelopes: one addressed to themselves and the other to their doctor.
Appointments are recommended but walk-ins will be accepted. Screening appointments will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Men who would like to schedule an appointment should call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
