During a lifetime, many things affect the heart. Like high blood pressure, being overweight, diabetes, sleep disorders and high cholesterol. Lifestyle choices, such as smoking, stress and lack of exercise also can be factors. And if these things are left unchecked, your heart may not do its job as well.
Screenings of your heart can help you make sure your heart stays healthy. Get the screening that's right for you. Call 877.566.4660 to schedule an appointment.

Three non-invasive and painless screening tests detect vascular problems.
Carotid scan – We use an ultrasound to scan the carotid artery in the head and neck and a blood pressure check to identify severe hypertension. These exams can detect the most frequent cause of stroke – significant internal carotid artery stenosis.
Aortic scan – This ultrasound scan checks the aorta, the body’s main artery. We use the scan to identify a bulge in the artery – called an aneurysm – that needs treatment.
PAD scan – An ultrasound exam helps us determine if you have any impairment in the circulation to your limbs. The exam also can identify blockages in the leg arteries, tell the severity of the blockage and determine if you need treatment for peripheral arterial disease.
