Thankful to ACD for Literally Saving My Life

“I am a 52 year old woman in good physical condition.

 

I was volunteering at the Community Fair 8 Health Fair in Cunningham Park when I noticed Advanced Cardiovascular Diagnostics performing heart health screenings. I knew that I previously smoked and that both my parents died of heart disease before the age of 60, so I had an obvious interest. I filled out the questionnaires and took all the cardiac tests including a Carotid Artery Ultrasound. I was told by Dr. Frankel that my Right Carotid Artery was blocked by 70% and my Left Carotid Artery was blocked by 50%. I was stunned because I felt great and had no symptoms. I was referred to a Vascular Surgeon by Dr. Frankel. I was given a Carotid Artery Doppler test and a Cat Scan by the Vascular Surgeon. Those tests revealed that my right carotid artery was blocked by over 85% and my left carotid was blocked by less than 50%. I had surgery and was and was so happy and very surprised that I barely felt any pain, but slightly uncomfortable. I am blessed to have peace of mind that I was able to prevent a stroke. I am thankful to Dr. Frankel and the team of Advanced Cardiovascular Diagnostics for literally saving my life.”
