Free PAD Screening in Phoenix
It is a known fact that 75% of adult population with active PAD have no symptoms. This is the main reason the top vascular surgeons at Arizona Vein and Laser Institute recommend that if you are over the age of 60 and have a strong family history but have no symptoms, you should get tested for PAD to be sure and safe. There are several methods of easy testing methods available at the clinic. One of the easiest and most popular one is taking advantage of our FREE PAD SCREENING time with Dr. Sharma, or with one of his other five associate top vascular surgeons today. During this screening appointment, Dr. Sharma will briefly talk with you about your symptoms and family history and simply by feeling the pedal pulse, he can accurately determine if you should go for further testing or not.
