VCS physicians believe in preventing heart disease just as strongly as they believe in diagnosing and treating it. Early identification of cardiovascular disease plays an important role in treating it. It gives you and your primary care doctor valuable information to develop a lifestyle and treatment plan, if necessary.
VCS has proven its commitment to prevention by being early adaptors of technology that has saved countless lives over the last several years. “We believe we have improved the process to identify cardiovascular disease,” says Dr. Shelton Thomas of VCS. “As a result of our screenings, many patients will realize benefits five to ten years from now. They will have received treatment early on, made ‘heart friendly’ changes in their lifestyles, and their odds of cardiovascular disease will have decreased significantly.”
