Last month, Dr. Holbrook had his Heart Scan. Dr. Burns had his first one a few years ago and a follow-up this week. The Result: a clean bill of health for both of our doctors!
ProPartnersMD generally recommends coronary artery calcium scoring (Heart Scan) for patients over forty years of age or with intermediate risk factors for heart disease. That is, two or more of the following risk factors: smoking history, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or family history of heart disease. Heart scans help to determine how aggressively to treat these risk factors and occasionally lead to further testing and treatment that can save lives.
If you meet these criteria and have not had a Heart Scan within the past five years, contact us to set an appointment to schedule yours or discuss this test with a doctor.
