The program is open to all Nassau County men ages 40 and older who have not previously been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Screenings will include a prostate-specific antigen blood test and a digital rectal exam.

Patients will be required to show photo ID containing an address at the time of the screening.
A patient wishing to be notified of the exam results should bring two stamped envelopes: one addressed to himself and the other to his regular doctor.

Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins will be accepted. Appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information or to make an appointment, call Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
