Free-Health-Screening-Doctor-Novi-Hypertension-Dooley Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is known as the “silent killer”.  It affects about 1 in 3 U.S.  adults and increases your risks of fatal heart attacks and strokes.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is blockage of the blood vessels of your legs.  Up to 50% of people with PAD have no symptoms despite having severe blockage.  Risk factors for PAD include:  hypertension; age > 50 years old; diabetes; and tobacco use.

Join two expert physicians, Dr. Victoria Dooley and Dr. Patrick Alexander, for free health screenings to assess your risk.

Screenings offered include:

  • Blood Pressure;
  • BMI (Body Mass Index), a calculation to assess if you are a healthy weight;
  • Urinalysis;
  • Ankle-Branchial Index, an ultrasound of the legs to check for clogged blood vessels.

We hope to see you at the FREE screening on Friday, September 27 from 9am to 12pm at 21580 Novi Rd. Suite 200, Novi.
