Stroke and Heart Disease Screening:
80% of strokes and heart disease can be prevented according to the American Heart
Association. With simple, painless ultrasound screenings we can help you learn if plaque is
building up in your blood vessels. Plaque can reduce the blood flow and be dangerous
to your health.

Did you know?
• Every 40 seconds someone in the United States has a stroke.
• Every 4 minutes someone will die from a stroke.
• 80% of strokes are preventable
• Strokes are the number 5 cause of death and leading cause of
disability in the United States.


PAD - Periphery Artery Disease
Leg cramps, pain and discomfort that develops with activity and gets better with
rest are some of the 1st symptoms of PAD.


The National Institutes of Health estimates that individuals with PAD have a 6-7 times
higher risk of Coronary Artery Disease, Heart Attack, Stoke/TIA.


Other symptoms of PAD include:
• Color changes to the extremities
• Increase infections
• Non-healing wounds on the legs
• Burning or aching pains in the legs and feet while at rest
• Many people with PAD will show no symptoms.


CVI - Chronic Venous Insufficiency
CVI is a condition where the venous valves in the lower extremities are not
working correctly which can cause blood to pool in the lower extremities.

 

Symptoms can include:
