Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a serious circulatory problem in which the blood vessels that carry blood to your arms, legs, brain, or kidneys, become narrowed or clogged. It affects over 8 million Americans, most over the age of 50. It may result in leg discomfort with walking, poor healing of leg sores/ulcers, difficult to control blood pressure, or symptoms of a stroke. People with PAD are at significantly increased risk for stroke and heart attack.
If it is recommended, a simple 20 minute exam can be scheduled to allow us to better assess your vascular health status and determine if further care or testing is needed.
