Peripheral artery disease (PAD) testing is conducted to assess patients for risk of stroke, heart attack, or transient ischemic attacks (mini strokes). We provide non-invasive PAD testing at our New York, New York medical office. Before the peripheral artery disease testing, our experienced doctor will ask you questions about your family medical history and various risk factors, such as smoking, diet, over-the-counter medications, and other factors. Dr. Abroon will check blood pressure and pulse rates in your various extremities, making comparisons to assess areas of the body that may show signs of poor blood flow. He may also use a stethoscope to listen for abnormal sounds. Peripheral artery disease testing is non-invasive and painless. Based on the PAD test results, Dr. Abroon can diagnose PAD and, if needed, refer you to a specialist for further care. We invite you to call or visit our medical office today to learn more about non-invasive peripheral artery disease testing and to schedule your appointment.
I have sleep apnea and an ENT recommended a surgical procedure carving out some tissue my palette, reducing my uvula, and straightening my septum to provide clear breathing pathways at night. Dr. Abroon gave this all-in-one procedure a decisive thumbs down. He referred me to a top ENT with a safer, and much less radical approach. I met then new doctor, and he’s great. Much thanks to Dr. Abroon for helping me avoid a potential nightmare.
