Vascular screenings play a crucial role in identifying the risk of stroke or heart attack by detecting any underlying conditions or blockages in the arteries. These screenings are essential as they allow for early intervention and prevention, potentially saving lives and preventing serious health complications.

During September, we observe PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease) awareness month, making it an opportune time to emphasize the importance of screenings. PAD is a common cardiovascular condition that occurs when there is a narrowing of the arteries, primarily in the legs and feet. If left untreated, PAD can lead to complications such as non-healing wounds, gangrene, and, in severe cases, amputation.

By scheduling a vascular screening, individuals can proactively assess their risk for cardiovascular disease. Through non-invasive tests like ultrasound and ankle-brachial index (ABI) measurement, healthcare professionals can identify blockages or abnormalities in the arteries. This information is critical in determining the need for further interventions, such as lifestyle modifications, medication, or even surgical procedures.

It is important to prioritize scheduling a screening, as early detection of potential blockages or underlying conditions allows for prompt treatment. Delaying or ignoring the signs and symptoms of cardiovascular disease can result in life-threatening events like heart attacks or strokes. Timely screenings not only help in preventing these events but also provide an opportunity to manage risk factors such as hypertension, high cholesterol levels, or diabetes.

To encourage proactive healthcare, we are offering vascular screenings for just $199. This pricing aims to make screenings more accessible and affordable for individuals. Please take advantage of this opportunity and take control of your health care with the knowledge a screening can provide.
