An open letter to my Patients

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States in both women and men ove the age of 50. Heart attack , stroke, congestive heart failure, angina, hypertension and peripheralvascular disease, to name a few, are among the myriad of cardiovascular disease leading to premature death.

 

I, as your health care provider , have been entrusted by you (the patient) to save and prevent the ravages of disease. I have been enlisted to you to prevent disase that is preventable. I, the doctor, am one the front- line of disease prevention. PREVENTION THROUGH EARLY DETECTION is my motto. I attempt cardiovasucular disease. This risk facors are as follows:

 

  1. Hypertension
  2. Diabetes
  3. 3. Total cholestorl over 200 or LDL cholestrol over 160
  4. Men over the age of 45 and women over the age of 55
  5. tobacco usage
  6. Sedentart lifestyle (lack of exercise)
  7. Obeseity
  8. Eating fast food more than 3 times a week

 

(ANY TWO OR MORE RISK FACTORS PUT YOU AT RISK FOR CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE) 

 

Once I assess your overall risk for cardiovascular disease, I will prescribe certain non- invasive test to evaluate your cardiovascular/ hemodynamic status. These tests will give me an overall picture of your vascular health. the following test may be recommended.

 

  1. 12 lead EKG
  2. Exercise stress test (Nuclear, MET- Test
  3. Echocardiogram
  4. Carotid Doppler sonogram
  5. Lower arterial doppler sonogram
  6. Pulmonary Function Test
  7. Holten montior

 

The above test will allow me to provide a very precise aaand accurate assessment of your overall cardiovascular health, BEFORE SYMPTOMS BEGIN. With these tests, I have detected silent vascular disease on numerous occasions and prevented heart attacks, stroke and other various end organ damage. Thus, saving health care dollars and contributing to the better quality of life for my patient is an informed patient. I will discuss every examination performed for you in detail. The doctor is always in.

 

Sincerely,

 

Felton Anderson , M.D.
