The next time you run into a Price Chopper supermarket for bread and milk you might consider a quick health assessment.
A new service at some of the supermarkets gives new meaning to “Doc In a Box”.
The kiosk can help you keep tabs on your health and even provide a quick tele-visit with a doctor. It's a collaboration between Capital District Physicians Health Plan and Price Chopper.
“They'll increase the accessibility of health care at a time when convenience is so important in everyone's quick paced life," said Jerry Golub, President and CEO of Price Chopper.
Inside the private booth, a computer screen directs you to programs to check, among other things, blood pressure, weight, your temperature and blood oxygen levels.
If you'd like a cholesterol evaluation a Price Chopper Pharmacist can do that for a $29.99 fee if you're not a CDPHP member.
