Have your cholesterol checked by nurses from Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County. Cholesterol screening is by appointment; call 203-594-3620 to schedule.

It is ideal, but not necessary, to fast 12 hours prior to the test (please do drink water, black coffee or tea in the morning).
The cost is $30 payable by cash or check; no insurance accepted.
