Dear Honorific First Last:

Enclosed is the Stool Blood Test Kit you requested. Instructions for completion are also enclosed in English and in Spanish.

Stool blood testing is an effective method of colorectal cancer screening when done yearly and when any positive stool blood tests are followed up by a colonoscopy.

To complete the kit, follow the enclosed instructions. Be sure to label the test cards with your name and return the completed kit to this office. We will route the completed kits for developing.

Sincerely,

PRACTICE PHYSICIANS
