Chronic diseases account for 7 out of every ten deaths of Americans per year. In addition, they result in 75% of healthcare costs in the U.S. Diseases like these are easier to treat initially and can be preventable when detected early through tests.
- Heart disease
Achieving optimal health requires work, but we believe it’s worth it when it comes to your wellbeing! Check out our reasons why care is essential for your health.
Peace of Mind
At our practice, we are just as concerned with your emotional wellbeing as your physical. So when you take the initiative to put your health first, you can give yourself the peace of mind to know that things are as they should be or that you are on the right path to your wellbeing.
There are many numbers to pay attention to when it comes to health, but two of the most important are your blood pressure and cholesterol.
Both numbers should remain under a specific limit to achieve optimal health, which varies depending on your age.
Leaving these numbers unchecked could lead to severe conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, or even a heart attack.
Monitoring these numbers with advanced cardiovascular screening and other tests can allow for a proper treatment plan (such as diet and exercise) to be made.
Advanced Cardiovascular Screening
Like many medical conditions, a person’s risk for heart disease varies widely and is dependent on a range of specific factors. The Comprehensive Cardiovascular Profile test analyzes a patient’s blood for levels of:
- Total cholesterol
- Lipoprotein (a)
- Apolipoprotein A1
- Apolipoprotein B
- C-reactive protein
All of these provide a detailed analysis of overall heart health, one factor at a time.
Identify Current Health Risks
- Do you have a family history of illness?
- Have you recently experienced changes in your body?
There are many illnesses that you could be at risk for without even knowing it. Whether you have a genetic predisposition or your physiology creates a condition, regular visits with your provider can help identify health risks and gives you the luxury of getting a head start on preventive treatment.
Complete Age-Appropriate Screening
At a certain age, all patients should be undergoing screening for preventable diseases like:
Screening tests are the best way to detect and prevent the above. We offer several diagnostic services and screening options.

We Want to Be Your Provider
Unfortunately, many people don’t go to the provider as often as they should for preventive care. They believe if they aren’t suffering from any specific illness or symptoms, there’s no reason to schedule an appointment.
However, many diseases are preventable when detected early, as are many chronic diseases avoidable with the right treatment plans and precautions. Yet, when it comes to annual provider visits per person, the U.S. is among the lowest.
- When’s the last time you saw your provider?
- Were you already sick by the time you got to the office?
