Pre-registered patients may arrive at the clinic for their appointment any time throughout the screening event. The appointment will include a comprehensive history, physical exam, same-day scheduling of the LDCT, and smoking cessation counseling.

Pre-registration is required. To register for the event, call Brianne Leichliter at 304-598-6516.
