Good exams. NO results after 5 week including 3 phone calls.

I had the standard 4 exams 5 weeks ago in October 2018. The exams were carried out in a professional manner in a timely fashion. I decided to have the C-reactive protein blood test also and they drew my blood. 5 weeks later I'm still waiting the results. I have called them 3 times and each time they confirm my address and say they have been sent. I asked if they could be emailed. The answer was yes but nothing has been forthcoming as the person I was talking with tells me it is unlawful for them to personally send the results but they will be sent within 3 business days. Today I called again with same results. This time I was told that the blood test results have not yet arrived. This is a single simple blood test which takes 1 day in most labs. Ashley, the rep, told me that they have no control over their lab. Although I've had exams with Life Scan in past years this will be my last year. DSW, retired surgeon

I attended this center at the request of my employer (State of FL). After they lost my blood work the FIRST TIME I received a call ordering me to re-do it. I explained to the secretary that she was in no position of order me to do anything and she apologized and asked nicely. A week later I arrived for my appointment and they advised me that they LOST the blood work for the SECOND time. I was furious and demanded to know what repercussions were going to happen to the employees responsible. They advised that "they were going to look into it". Double standards: The first thing that I noticed is that all the staff were females at all stations. For the most part they were professional but there were (2) incidents where the double standards were unacceptable: 1) the ultra-sound was conducted by a female (in room alone with me). I know this sounds trivial but if the patient was a female she would NEVER be left alone in the room with a male Technician. This gender-double standard should never be aloud to occur yet it seemed like "business as usual" with this facility. 2) during the final review with the nurse she pulled my boxers down without warning and began checking me for a hernia despite having no history and being completely asymptomatic. Again, as a patient in a room with medical personal of the opposite gender I found this gender-double standard to be completely unacceptable. The lack of patient dignity when she (without warning) pulled down my underwear brought me to a level of anger/aggression that became awkwardly obvious. I would NEVER go back to this facility due to its gender-double standard and lack of acknowledgment of this standard.

Life Scan Welness Center Medical Examination Review from Plant City, Florida

Thursday, May 26, 2016. Today I had my physical at Life Scan, 11200 Seminole Boulevard Suite 100, Largo, Florida 33778. The office I was in was not a warehouse as another poster commented, nor was my experience horrible. Quite the contrary, there were 4 of us having exams during the same time frame and not one of us saw each other at the various "stations." There were no windows in any of the exam rooms. Each assesment was done in a separate room, the stress test done on a treadmill and other physical assessments, hearing and vision, TB shot and general physical, and ultrasound. Very very thorough procedure! Each person that did the separate assessments was very nice, professional, and explained EVERYTHING! No, I don't like to disrobe in front if anyone, but that's needed when a thorough exam is done. If you are so bothered by that, then maybe police work/EMS/fire fighter isn't for you, you'll be in far far more uncomfortable situations during your career. And I only had to fully disrobe once (shorts down to mid thigh), quickly, for my testicular exam. Your shirt will need to be removed during the stress test (a bunch of probes need to be attached to your chest to monitor your heart), the ultrasound (EVERY organ and major artery are checked), and the physical. I HIGHLY recommend getting this done, the agency I am going through the process for allows the employee and every household member over 18 to get one done every year. My family will never miss out on that yearly opportunity. I didn't expect any problems, and none were found, but believing you are healthy and knowing you are healthy are two very different things. For instance, I now know my artery walls are in great shape with no plaque buildup or thickening walls, and I don't have any kidney or gall bladder stones. These are things that you wouldn't notice until it was too late. Again, the ultrasound tech was very thorough, the arteries and kidney/gall bladder stones are just an example. An acquaintance of mine had one done for pre-employment and a 10 pound tumor was found around his kidney. He had virtually NO symptoms. He lives in a different area, but same company, Life Scan, did his assessment.

LifeScan is great if you liked to be herded around like sheep!

LifeScan 11200 Seminole Blvd, Largo, FL 33778 - This company does a complete medical physical including hearing, vision, stress testing and ultra sound of all major organs including private parts. They do large groups at a time like Fired Departments and Police. My experience was horrible! The stress test: They stick wires on your chest from a heart monitor and you are to walk on a treadmill until you reach a desired heart rate. You are to undress to shorts and shoes no shirt. Where we were at was a warehouse with partial walls around the workout equipment. There was no privacy you were there for everybody to see. The LifeScan tech had absolutely zero concern about your comfort zone, dignity or privacy. You are stressed to the max walking the incline on the treadmill and all around its business as usual.. people walking around.. your company peers watching you.. it was one of the most uncomfortable situations I have ever been involved in. The Tech's only concern was getting you out and the next one in. The 2nd situation was the ultra sound. This station was in one of our offices. Again you had to strip down to your shorts and at one point expose your private parts for the procedure. Afterwards I saw the office door had a big window with window shades that are too small. They were about an inch short on the sides and one corner was pulled up. Regular business people traffic walking back and forth that look in at you. Again, the Tech's had no compassion for your privacy, dignity. If this procedure is offered next year I will NOT participate. This company does not teach their employees about privacy, compassion, patient dignity. I highly recommend that you do NOT use LifeScan... Just go to your own Dr. I hope this has helped somebody.

Not sure where you had yours done, mine was done at their office on Seminole Blvd and I had very good privacy. The Treadmill was done in a private room as was the ultrasound scan and I felt just fine.

I saw two other client/patients outside in the waiting area during the meal/drink they provide and never saw them in the offices.

As far as dignity, I received an excellent exam that my own primary care dr said he could not order or do with insurance restrictions and regulations....and a clean bill of health. Not sure what your issues were but I am very thankful for the exam and the fact my employer paid for it.

II also had a good experience at Lifescan in the Largo office. There was all the privacy needed and everyone was professional and courteous! Scheduling another one now.
