18-Point Heart Inspection
If we showed our hearts the same respect that we show our cars – preventative maintenance with advanced diagnostics to keep engines running smoothly – heart disease wouldn't be the nation's number one killer. Schedule your 18-Point Heart Inspection today! Sarasota Memorial's Cardiovascular Disease Assessment Center has developed a novel series of 18 non-invasive heart, lung and circulation tests that do more than detect individual risk factors ... they predict and reveal the earliest markers of disease – giving you warning signs and time to steer clear of the danger zone! Learn more by calling (941) 917-6969 or visiting our website.
