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 a 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 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.
