September is P.A.D. Awareness Month and Spirit of Women is offering free P.A.D. screenings. P.A.D. stands for Peripheral Arterial Disease, which is the narrowing and hardening of arteries in the legs because of fatty deposit build-up. Signs of P.A.D include numbness or tingling in the legs, loss of hair on toes or feet and cramping in the legs that feels better with rest. The risk factors are diabetes, high blood pressure and history of coronary artery disease.
We are also offering Higher Level Screenings at a special rate of $99. The higher level includes:
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Stroke/Carotid Artery
*Payment can be made at time of screening.
Genesis cardiologist, Anwar Din, MD, will be providing consultations after your screening.
