A POM View VIP Screening is the most comprehensive and complete health screening you can have. It can detect heart disease, cancer, stroke, aneurysm and other life-threatening conditions at an earlier, more treatable stage.

It can help you understand your true risk for a host of health conditions, so that you and your doctor can take steps to avoid problems down the road. It can help you avoid taking expensive medications with debilitating side effects. And if nothing is found, it can offer you peace of mind.
Yes. While no screening test is perfect, a POM View VIP screening is much more revealing than a standard doctor’s physical, and because it uses state-of-the-art imaging, the doctor can actually “see” disease forming in the body.
First, you should tell them that they actually would rather know. If they can catch disease before outward symptoms start to appear, will have caught it at an earlier stage and there will likely be more treatment options. Knowledge is power, and knowing exactly where they are at risk can add many healthy years to their life.
When you talk with us, we can help you determine the best screening option for you. This is partly based on your family risk, as well as any factors that your lifestyle and career may have had on your health risk.
If the screening finds a problem that has previously gone undetected, chances are good that it will have been found at an earlier stage—at a time when more treatment options are available to you. In addition, new treatment options for disease are innovated each year, and many of these are less invasive and more effective than treatments of the past.
Yes. Every POM View VIP Screening includes an in-depth consultation with our doctor. He will go over the results with you in detail, and even contact your primary care physician if needed.
Unless you have a significant family risk, the general rule is that only those over 40 years of age should have such a screening—unless they are at a higher risk for certain diseases. Today, Americans are living into their 80s, 90s and even 100s. Therefore, it is not uncommon for people in their 70s and 80s to undergo such screenings to ensure they have as many quality years of life as possible.
It depends on the option you choose, but the time required for the MRI and CT scans can range from 1-2 hours. Blood and urine tests can be scheduled at your convenience. The consultation with our doctor will be as long as it takes to provide you with a complete understanding of the findings and to provide you with recommendations. The consultation will be scheduled as soon as the lab results have been returned, generally about a week after your screening.
We use state-of-the-art imaging technologies that provide detailed images of the inside of the human body, along with one of the most comprehensive and in-depth blood panels available today. The doctor who reviews the results is specially trained to look for abnormalities within the body, and has undergone a minimum of 13 years of schooling and training. That said, there is always the possibility—although rare—that further testing will be required to follow up on a finding, or that a false positive/false negative finding may occur.
Depending on your risk and the findings of your first screening, our doctor will recommend the appropriate follow-up screening frequency. For most patients, the screenings are recommended every 3-5 years.
