Stay in control of your health by talking to a healthcare provider about your concerns.

We provide bone density screenings to determine if you are at risk for osteoporosis. These screenings measure the calcium and other minerals in a segment of your bone. These fast, effective and non-invasive tests are the first step. After your screening, we create a treatment plan to curb bone loss and manage your condition.
