Partial refunds are unavailable for any unused segments of the screening program.
During the screening
The day before the screening, have nothing to eat or drink after midnight. The screening will take about 45 minutes.
For your convenience, the Heart Plus Screening is offered at two locations in Jackson and Madison. Baptist’s staff can make an appointment for you at the clinic most conveniently located for you:
Jackson - Directly across from Baptist Heart in the Outpatient Cardiovascular Diagnostics, Suite 100, in Colonnades medical office building on the campus of Mississippi Baptist Medical Center.
Madison – 401 Baptist Drive, Suite 406 in Madison (Coming soon)
A member of the clinical staff at one of the Baptist Heart locations will take you through the steps of the Heart Plus Screening. When you are finished, he or she will enter the information into an electronic record for a clinic physician to evaluate.
Your results will be available via MyChart within three business days.
We will mail your completed screening report to you, usually in about three weeks. If your results indicate a need for immediate follow up, a member of our cardiovascular team will call you at the telephone number you provided. If you have questions about your results, we recommend you discuss them with your primary physician by sending a MyChart message.
