Preventive services include:

  • Complete Lipid Panel Screening
  • A simple finger-stick screening, this procedure measures three different kinds of lipids in your blood (HDL, LDL and triglycerides) as well as total cholesterol. Your lipid levels are important in determining your heart health.

  • C-reactive Protein Screening
  • Simple finger-stick screening that measures C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in your blood can help determine heart disease and stroke risk levels. As a part of your immune system, CRP levels become elevated because of infection or inflammation.

  • Screening for Heart Disease
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening is a painless, non-invasive procedure that requires you to lie on your back while a technician uses ultrasound to take images and measurements of your abdominal aorta.

  • Glucose Screening
  • A quick and easy finger-stick screening that measures blood sugar levels following eight hours of fasting, our Blood Glucose test helps identify diabetes (a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke), as well as monitor blood sugar levels for those already diagnosed with the disease.

  • High Blood Pressure Screening
  • Quick and easy, this test is performed at every one of our heart screenings. It involves a pressure cuff being placed around your upper arm to monitor both diastolic and systolic blood pressure. The results are then compared to a standardized blood pressure chart.

Preventive Services

Our interventional cardiologists are highly skilled and trained in catheter-based treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). By using a catheter, we avoid making large surgical cuts when we remove the blockage. As a result, procedures that rely on a catheter generally decrease pain, pose less risk of infection, avoid large scars and shorten recovery times. In some cases, the patient may go home the same day. During a peripheral vascular intervention, you will have anesthesia, so the discomfort and pain will be minor. It may be a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel much discomfort where a small catheter is inserted into your groin or arm. You will remain awake and be able to follow the instructions.

Our Pledge
One of our top priorities is ease of access. We pride ourselves on responsiveness to patient inquiries and physician contacts. Our staff physicians are experts in preventive cardiology, diagnostic cardiac imaging and interventions. These services are provided with compassionate care that our patients deserve.
