Do you have 20 minutes to add years to your life? You can help prevent vascular disease with a painless, low-cost screening. Weekly appointments are available and will be held at Iowa City Heart Center, PC, Suite 400, Mercy Medical Plaza, 540 E Jefferson Street, Iowa City.
This $99 screening package includes stroke/carotid artery ultrasound, abdominal aortic ultrasound, ankle-brachial index, and blood pressure checks. All results are reviewed by a physician.
Vascular disease is among the leading causes of death in the United States. However, it is generally without symptoms until a catastrophic event occurs, such as a stroke or aneurysm rupture.
The screenings are recommended for people 55 years or older with cardiovascular risk factors such as a history of high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, smoking, high cholesterol, or known cardiovascular disease.
To make your appointment, call Iowa City Heart Center at 319-339-3883. Payment can be by check, cash, or credit card and can be made at the time of the appointment.
