Advanced Cardiovascular Testing
Heart Disease and Stroke are the top health concerns for both men and women in our country. Vascular screening for plaque in your arteries and early intervention can help prevent a life threatening event. We offer our patients advanced lipid screening through Berkeley Heart Lab. Genetic markers for heart disease and more comprehensive lipid profiles can also identify those persons at higher risk. Please discuss these and other cardiovascular screening tests offered by our providers at your next visit.
