Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of U.S. men and women. According to the American Heart Association, someone in the United States has a heart attack approximately every 40 seconds. Unfortunately, in its earliest and most treatable stages, heart disease rarely reveals itself through symptoms. For many people, a heart attack is the first clue of any heart trouble.

Do you have patients who might be wondering about the degree to which they are at risk of having a heart attack? Do you have the following individuals in your practice?

Men over age 40 and women over age 45 who have one or more of the following risk factors:

  • Diabetes
  • Family history of heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Physical inactivity
  • Smoking

Their concern could be answered by an imaging test that takes less than 30 minutes. For $99, a board-certified physician will assess your patient and provide a calcium score to both you and your patient.

We’re here to help you uncover early-stage heart disease for your patients. It’s fast and easy. No needles. No dyes. No exercise. They don’t even have to change their clothes.

To schedule a Premier Health Heart CT, call (937) 499-7364 or (855) 887-7364 (toll-free).
