Over 1/2 of All People with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Are Undiagnosed

Up to 18 million Americans (and 20% or more of those over age 60) have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). PAD sufferers have a 21% increased risk of a heart attack, stroke, hospitalization or death within one year.  That is why at Philly City Foot Doc, we have the QuantaFlo™ PAD test available to be performed on the same office visit that we see you.  We are able to refer you to a vascular specialist if needed as well who can get you in quickly to be further evaluated and treated.

Right Time, Right Place for Diagnosis


The QuantaFlo™ PAD test delivers fast, accurate results in around 5 minutes at the point of care when the opportunity to improve health and lower cost is the greatest.
