Simple signs like fatigue, shortness of breath, maybe reflex, or some chest pressure aren't signs of aging or being out of shape. They are actually signs that the heart disease has progressed. 

Any new symptoms, we would like to check out.

High blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and stress levels don't always have noticeable symptoms. So, don't skip your regular check-ups with your doctor.

These are all things that we can easily screen for with non-invasive methods that are just a quick pit stop. And then we can get you back out there and make sure that you're not putting yourself at risk when you start out on your new or restart your activities.
