What is a Paramedical Exam?

A paramedical exam asks questions about your medical history, along with blood pressure, height, weight, measurements, pulse, and urine specimen. In some cases, a blood/urine and/or an EKG will be performed.

Where will the exam take place?

In the comfort of your home, your place of employment, or any other designated place of your choosing.

Examiners are humans, too.
