RED alert screenings at Forward Healthy Lifestyles help patients step forward and take control of their cardiovascular health. Designed to detect early signs of heart disease and stroke, these screenings utilize innovative technology and the expertise of medical professionals. Through a process that is convenient and affordable, our RED alert screenings empower individuals with information that can save their lives.

Early Detection Minimizes the Risks of Heart Disease and Stroke

Heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death and disability in the United States. The American Heart Association reports that these conditions claim more lives annually than all forms of cancer and Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease combined. With around 18.2 million adults suffering from coronary artery disease and strokes occurring every 40 seconds, the need for early detection is paramount. These screenings are vital in identifying risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, which are often silent but significantly increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.

What Are Red Alert Screenings?

The RED Alert Screenings at Forward Healthy Lifestyles clinic is a comprehensive approach to cardiovascular health. This detailed screening process includes a non-invasive scan of the Carotid Artery, a crucial test for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), an important scan for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, and a critical test for Atrial Fibrillation. Highly skilled medical professionals use state-of-the-art technology to conduct these procedures, ensuring accurate and valuable insights into your cardiovascular health risks.

The Screening Process

RED Alert Screenings are meticulously overseen by Chief Cardiologist Dr. Reiser, known for his excellence in cardiovascular care. Experienced medical professionals manage the screening, ensuring results that are both precise and can be effectively used. Dr. Reiser will evaluate the screening results and provide a comprehensive overview of your cardiovascular health. Should the results reveal any irregularities, the clinic will guide you to the next steps and connect you with leading specialists to help you regain control of your health. 

The Cost of RED Alert Screening

The comprehensive RED Alert Screening is offered at a competitive price of $199, including both the scans and expert interpretation of results. Conducted in the clinic’s comfortable and convenient setting, the screening is a brief, painless procedure. It involves non-invasive techniques such as ultrasound and electrodes, taking about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Results are shared within two weeks, ensuring timely insight into your cardiovascular health.

Who Should Get RED Alert Screening?

RED Alert Screening is particularly important for those with a family history of cardiovascular diseases or diabetes, individuals struggling with weight management, smokers, and those with high blood pressure or cholesterol. Even if you feel healthy, this screening can be an initiative-taking step in ensuring a longer, quality life. An annual screening is advised, but those with pre-existing conditions or identified risks may benefit from more frequent assessments.
