About HealthFairOn the Road to Better Health
It was great! HealthFair was the one that discovered I had PAD, and I don’t know what I would have done without them because it was really bad. HealthFair sent me right to my doctor and my doctor sent me to the hospital and they took care of it, so I thank HealthFair for finding it! The surgeon removed the blockage in my legs. It was wonderful. The surgery wasn’t wonderful, but it was wonderful that HealthFair found it because if I wouldn’t have gone to them I probably wouldn’t have known. Although I knew I was in a lot of pain, I knew there was something wrong, maybe in the back of my mind I knew that if I went to HealthFair, they would find it. I don’t know, but they did and I feel like HealthFair saved my life!
I can’t understand why more people do not go for health screenings; I told all my friends that those screenings really saved my life. It’s wonderful; I’m just now getting back to my old self. I wanted to thank everybody at HealthFair for what they have done. I’m proud of what you guys did. Thank you!
Every year or two, I visit the HealthFair screening bus. Although I regularly see my physician, it’s a way for me to receive additional testing at an affordable price. When I visited this February, what the technicians found absolutely saved my life. They discovered I had aortic stenosis. The staff was wonderful. They took the time to explain my results and advised me to call my physician immediately.
My cardiologist confirmed the results and I am now recovering from a successful valve replacement surgery. If it wasn’t for HealthFair, I would’ve never known anything was wrong. I can’t thank them enough for the services they provide.
I encourage all my friends to get screened. I remind them, you can’t take your money to the grave. These screenings are affordable and well worth the price. Your health is worth it.
Thank you for saving my life!
Just a short commendation for Inova’s leadership and especially the terrific staff at your Mobile Health Clinic that I visited January 31st, 2013 at the parking lot at Mt Vernon Inova Hospital.
Each of the staff at the clinic were courteous, professional and the tests timely—I underwent a series of tests that I wouldn’t normally get during my annual physical (which I had two weeks prior). The tests were cost effective, the unique blood test (finger pricking) achieved the same results in minutes compared the my doctor’s staff drawing blood and taking a week to get results back, with costs much reduced, so the two tests were mutually confirming.
Could you let the staff at the mobile clinic know how much I appreciated their work and their courtesy, professionalism and excellent organizational skills!
“I think the procedures I had today should be a part of a standard physical. And if they are not they should be. I’m going to bring this up to my doctor and ask if they be included in a standard physical. It should be done every year. [The experience] Easy to sign up, easy to find, pleasant and confident people that do the work on you.”

“I am very pleased to be offered this. It’s going to help me answer a lot of questions I have about my heart health, and help me make decisions pertaining my medical attention. I was not getting this from my provider, I had to step out on my own to do this. Miraculously, your postcard showed up in my mail and the price was right.”
– Michael Geany, Alpharetta, GA
“My experience was very positive today. Came in, the ladies briefed me immediately, got my paperwork done, got me right in the back in the exam room and explained all the procedures they were doing. Everybody was quick and efficient and very informative.”

I just received my personal health report from HealthFair and I wanted to call the organization and let you know how extremely pleased I was with the whole program. The people were friendly and courteous; they seemed to know what they were doing. They answered my questions, and I got my report back. It was extremely helpful. The really awful things that people are really scared about, aneurysms and so forth, I didn’t have any of those. The things that I knew I needed to work on, weight reduction, types of eating that I do and exercises, all of that I knew about, but was kind of avoiding were on there.
It was very well-worded, everything was understandable to an average person and it made me feel very good about the things that were not wrong and gave me specific ideas of things to do [to make some changes in my life]. I found it extremely helpful and is something I will hang on to and will pass on to my doctors. It has motivated me to make some changes in my life.
Had it not been for this particular program, none of this would have happened because people don’t just suddenly decide to have all these test done. If they were done in particularly in a hospital or a doctor’s office it would cost a great deal of more money. The money I paid was more than well worth it and I would encourage anyone, any adult to take advantage of this when they come into your area.
Students of Shelton School were very fortunate to be a part of receiving heart screening through Living for Zachary by The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano and HealthFair. When parents were sent information to reserve a time for screening, all were filled within one hour. We had a few students who received results that alerted them to follow up with their physician. This experience was such a gift to our students and families. All the personnel were so friendly as well as professional. We are truly grateful for being given the opportunity to provide this screening for our families.
