Why I Chose Within Health for My Preventive Screening

Whether you have a genetic predisposition to a disease due to family history or there are other health concerns that you want to address, preventive health screening is one of the most important ways to facilitate early diagnosis and treatment. By being proactive with your health and getting screened, the less your chances are of developing a serious medical issue.


One of the main challenges that people face are the long wait times, from making the initial appointment with their doctor and scheduling the screening to waiting for the results to come back. Within Health makes the entire preventive screening process simple and accessible for people who want to take their health into their own hands. 


This week, we sat down with several Within Health customers who shared their personal experiences, and explained how the preventive screening process works, why they chose Within Health, and more:


Customer #1: Shelby, F, 32


Q: What made you decide that it was time to take action and be proactive about your health?

A: I would say I’m pretty proactive about my health. I had an appointment scheduled to meet with a neurologist, but it was a long wait until then. When I found out about Within Health, I was excited at the opportunity to take my health back into my own hands and get testing done so that I could get answers to the problems I was having. 


Q: What scan did you consider and why?

A: I went with the brain scan because that was part of my health concerns. I felt it could provide answers and help me decide what was next and how to get to bottom of my symptoms. 


Q: Why did you choose to get your preventive screen from Within Health?

A: I didn't know there were other options for getting scans. I thought it could only be done by seeing a doctor who ordered it. The thought had occurred to me that the neurologist might not think it was necessary or recommend a scan, which is why I went ahead and did it myself so that I could get answers.


Q: How did you feel before getting the scan?

A: I was nervous before the scan. I’d never had one before and I was anxious about the results.


Q: What was the experience like from start to finish? (virtual consultation, facility, staff, scan itself, etc.)

A: The experience was seamless and efficient. Everything was completed within three days the consultation, securing an appointment, getting the scanand the results were timely as well. 



Q: How do you feel now?

A: I feel relieved after getting a good report.


Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to someone who wants to do more for their health?

A: Stay on it. Call multiple doctors until you get an earlier appointment or are able to find someone in-network. Get multiple opinions and trust your gut.


Customer #2: Marlon, M, 65


Q: What made you decide that it was time to take action and be proactive about your health?

A: My family has a history of cancer. Given this history, my family believes in preventive care, which includes preventive health screening. Preventive care is important for me because it helps me stay healthy and access prompt treatment when necessary. 


Q: What scan did you consider and why?

A: I chose to have a full-body scan from head-to-toe in order to find cancers, inflammation, or obstruction processes in my body. 


Q: Why did you choose to get your preventive screen from Within Health?

A: I was impressed with the co-founders of Within Health and I wanted to support their mission.


Q: How did you feel before getting the scan?

A: I felt fine, but I was never completely sure if my annual medical check-up was comprehensive and thorough enough.


Q: What was the experience like from start to finish? (virtual consultation, facility, staff, scan itself, etc.)

A: The entire process with Within Health was very easy⎯from scheduling the appointment and the pre-scan consultation to finding an MRI location that was convenient for me and being able to receive my MRI results in 72 hours. Also, I found the cost of the full-body scan to be quite reasonable.


Q: How do you feel now?

A: I feel so much better after having my full-body scan and receiving my report. I’m able to sleep better at night knowing that I’m in good health.


Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to someone who wants to do more for their health?

A: Get a full-body scan with Within Health!
