Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are in need of primary care and screening testing. You are wondering if you go to a hospital will the on call emergency doctor perform or order screening tests for you FOBT and mammogram. More than likely they will order the tests but your follow up will be less than adequate. You may have better luck going to an urgent care center where they will have more continuity with you and can follow up with your testing. The best thing is to find a primary care doctor and establish care there.
