Prevention is the key to staying healthy. Our nurse practitioner performs a comprehensive and noninvasive evaluation to determine your potential risk for heart disease, and teaches you how to decrease your risk. Both virtual and in-person screenings are available. 

Who Can Be Screened?

  • Women and men between the ages of 20 and 79

What Is Included in the Heart Screening?

The screening includes:

  • Your health history
  • Blood work analysis
  • Review of biometrics
  • Pulse assessments including your carotid and peripheral pulses 
  • 10-year and lifetime risk calculation of heart attack or stroke, known as your atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, or ASCVD, risk
  • Cardiology referrals when necessary
  • Diet & lifestyle recommendations and education

What is Required to Complete Your Screening? 

The following lab work is required to complete your heart risk assessment:

  • Lipid panel
  • CMP
  • Vitamin D
  • HbA1c

Prior lab work can be used if it is not more than 12 months old from the date of your actual appointment. If needed, a prescription for new lab work can be provided (this is the financial responsibility of the patient).

Next Steps After the Screening

  • Based on the results of your screening, we will develop with you an individual action plan with specific goals for modifying your lifestyle as needed.
  • If additional care is needed, we will refer you to a cardiologist for treatment and follow-up.
