     · 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 for a free prostate cancer screening should call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
