Know Your Risks

Want to show the people you love just how much you care? Take good care of your heart. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women, and 9 of 10 women have at least one risk factor. A healthy heart starts with knowing your risks.

So what now?

Education and lifestyle changes can reduce up to 80% of your heart risk. Learn more about your particular risks and how to reduce them by scheduling a women’s heart screening.

Ready to get started?

Take the next to keep your beat strong. Our team of experts created a $99 screening designed just for women* that goes well beyond a normal checkup, giving you a detailed report with recommendations to keep your heartbeat strong and healthy. That’s a small price to pay for big peace of mind.

*This screening is intended for women who do not have a pre-existing cardiac issue or established cardiologist. If you have a history of heart disease, please call to schedule a cardiology consultation appointment so we can address your needs more specifically.

Your comprehensive screening includes
  • Complete health history
  • Family history, pregnancy history, depression scale, sleep evaluation and cardiac risk assessment.
  • Physical exam
  • Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI)
  • Extensive lab work
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Heart health report
