Anybody know anything about the Life Line Screenings that travel around testing for stroke and cardiovascular disease?  Are they any good?

That's about what my cardiodoc said--they're cheap enough, and won't do any harm.  The problem with them is that results of most of these tests is in the eye of the beholder.  These results can be seen in several ways usually, and the training and competence of the reader comes into play with them.  And of course with these mobile deals, we never know who the reader is or qualifications, etc..

But, what the heck.  Won't do any harm, and $139 is cheap enough to make you feel better, (or get something checked out further).

To answer your question(are they any good?), I don't know but for $139 I decided to do it.
