Joe Turnbow, M.D. and Heart Attack Prevention Strategies mission is to prevent every heart attack and stroke possible thru advanced testing and aggressive treatment. We look at all conditions scientifically known to be associated with an increased risk of a heart attack or stroke in each individual patient. Then we get advanced blood tests for lipids and markers of arterial inflammation and we get advanced scans such as the Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) scan, Abdominal Arota Ultrasound scan, Ankle / Brachial Index by doppler and a Heart Scan.
The first visit with Dr. Turnbow includes a cardiovascular physical exam, a complete review of the health history and a complete explanation of what we are doing and why. The second visit usually also lasts 1 1/2 to 2 hours as all test results are reviewed, risk is assessed and an individualized treatment plan is formulated.
