At Marietta Memorial Hospital, we know the best way to fight disease is to keep it from developing in the first place. We also know heart disease and stroke are two of the most common health conditions found in the region. That's why we're teaming up with Dr. Shane Parmer, vascular surgeon, to put the power in your hands.
Our non-invasive vascular screenings are free and the key to taking a proactive approach to your heart health. Vascular screenings are particularly helpful for anyone with a family history of early onset of heart disease, persistent leg pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or a personal history of smoking.
To be eligible you must:
- Have no past participation in the program.
- One visit per patient.
- No current involvement with a vascular specialist.
- Be age 18 or over.
Screenings last about 60 minutes and include patient education, carotid ultrasound to detect stroke risk factors, aorta ultrasound to detect aneurysms and ankle/brachial measurements to detect disease in the legs. You might not have any symptoms, but you could be at risk.
Appointments available daily. Critical results provided immediately. Call (740) 374-1750 to schedule your screening today.
