Dr Aziz Corner: Boston Heart Cardiac Risk Assessment

dr. az

February is American Heart Month and Kurt Moyer General Manager, Dr. Aziz  talks about an exciting new test available through our pharmacy called the Boston Heart Cardiac Risk Assessment.

Cardiovascular Disease affects 1 in 3 Americans. That should get just about everyone’s attention.

One of the tests your doctor may perform to access your risk of heart disease is the standard lipid panel (Slide 1-Monitor). This test measures total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol) and a few other measurements.It’s a good test and your doctor can get some good information from it, but it doesn’t address several other factors that put you at risk.
