Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the United States?
Many people are shocked to hear this.
Here at FPC, we’ve noticed that many women do a good job with staying up-to-date with their OBGYN care while neglecting other aspects of their routine health care. By restricting their care to this area, many women are missing out on the opportunity to be screened and treated for a variety of treatable and possibly preventable conditions that can contribute to the development of heart disease.
So what can you do?
Schedule a physical and talk to your primary care provider about what regular screenings are important for you and your health. We can better evaluate your overall heart health and assess your individual risk factors for developing heart disease including blood pressure, cholesterol, activity level, and family history.
