Strokes and heart attacks are two of the most common causes of death in the US, accounting for a combined 1/3 of all American deaths annually.
Some of the main contributors to strokes and heart attacks are cardiovascular ailments that show no visible symptoms before it’s too late.
For Stroke Awareness Month, we want to remind you that it’s important to check for early warning signs. We offer heart and stroke screenings to identify potential issues and advise our patients on how to reduce their risk going forward.
Generally a screening appointment should be scheduled once a year, unless you are at particularly high risk. If you are due for a screening, contact us today. Early detection is essential.
