A carotid ultrasound is a procedure that uses sound waves to observe the blood flow through the two carotid arteries on each side of the neck. The ultrasound will show if the arteries are narrowed or blocked and give the doctor a way to determine treatment.


An echocardiogram produces sound waves to show images of the heart. The test will show the heart beating and pumping blood and will allow a doctor to identify heart disease.


EVLT (Endovenous Laser Therapy) will correct varicose veins through a minimally invasive procedure. A doctor will make a small incision and insert a small laser fiber into the vein. The laser is used to close the vein, rerouting the blood to a healthy vein, and improving overall circulation.


Holter Monitors are a small, battery-powered medical device worn around the neck to record your heartbeat. The monitor is usually worn for one to two days and gives the doctor detailed information on a potentially irregular heart rhythm.


A Peripheral Angiogram tests for narrowed or blocked arteries in the legs. A dye is used to illuminate an artery so an X-ray can clearly show if an area is blocked.


Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to eradicate varicose veins and spider veins. The process involves injecting a solution into the affected veins. The solution causes the blood vessel wall to collapse and the blood to clot. The vessel will eventually turn into scar tissue and fade away.


A stress test can show blood flow problems within your heart through physical activity. Exercise makes your heart pump faster, revealing potential issues that may not be apparent when at rest. During a stress test, you will be stationary biking or walking or receive a drug that will make your heart mimic the effects of exercise. Blood pressure, breathing, and heart rhythm will be monitored to show abnormalities.
