One in five Americans will get skin cancer in their lifetime.
Yorba Linda, California (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
Caduceus Medical Group’s popular Saturday skin screenings at the Laguna Beach office location, Caduceus on Thalia, will now be expanded to its primary care office in Yorba Linda. The complimentary screenings will be offered all day on Saturdays 9am-5pm.
This decision reaffirms Caduceus’ commitment to being one of the trendsetters in the medical field, putting “patients before profits” and ultimately enhancing the overall patient experience. This cancer prevention program will continue to enhance patient care by expanding its existing complimentary concierge services, thereby improving medical outcomes for patients.
Caduceus Medical Director, Gregg DeNicola MD, adds, “Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., and regular screenings are critical, especially in sunny Southern California.
It's very hard to avoid the sun. Even with adequate sun protection, skin cancer is far and away more common than all other cancers combined. Everyone is at risk to develop one and one in five Americans will get skin cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. If the screenings prevent even one serious or even life threatening outcome, then the implementation of this new policy speaks for itself.”
Both existing patients and those new to Caduceus may take advantage of this free service, available on the Yorba Linda campus at Caduceus Medical Group 18300 Yorba Linda Blvd, Ste 204. No appointment is necessary, and walk-ins are also welcome.
