Cardiac Check-Ups

Cardiac problems can be caused by a variety of things such as high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, an inactive lifestyle, or a family history of heart disease. These diseases can be debilitating, but you can start preventing them when you schedule a cardiac check-up. Our board-certified cardiologist can teach you which symptoms to look out for and how to practice a healthier lifestyle so you can be proactive about your health.

Colonoscopy Screening

It’s important to maintain your digestive health so you can ensure that your body is working at its best. One way you can prevent gastrointestinal diseases is by scheduling regular colonoscopy exams. Colonoscopies are a great way to begin living a longer and healthier life, and Dr. Peter Heit, M.D., understands that most. Your appointment will begin with a conversation about your current lifestyle choices and medical history, and it will end with a discussion on what was found so you can gain a full understanding of how to prevent certain gastrointestinal diseases.

Osteoporosis Screening

Osteoporosis is a common condition that usually affects people as they grow older. It’s hard to detect early symptoms of osteoporosis, which is why it’s important to schedule regular bone screenings with your doctor. A bone density test can help determine if you are at risk for osteoporosis-related fractures. Routine bone scans are recommended for all women starting at age 65, or earlier if they have certain risk factors. You can start preventing your chances of getting osteoporosis through medication, exercise, nutrition, smoking cessation, and limiting alcohol consumption.
