Patients are reducing their risk for heart disease and stroke with help from Vecino’s Denver Harbor Family Health Center
to schedule an appointment
Texas has one of the highest rates of high blood pressure in the country. Patients at Vecino’s Denver Harbor Family Clinic in Houston can make an appointment for a screening and work with clinic staff to control their blood pressure.
High blood pressure is called “the silent killer.” And for good reason. Nearly half of all adults in the US have high blood pressure, which leads to problems like heart attack and stroke. But many people with high blood pressure don’t even know they have it. This is because it usually has no symptoms.
High blood pressure is treatable, and staff at Vecino’s Denver Harbor Family Clinic want to help every patient get theirs under control.
We already helped many patients lower their blood pressure. And we have the tools to help more patients do the same.
With proper treatment and management, you can control your high blood pressure to help you live a long and healthy life.
How do I know if I have high blood pressure?
Getting a blood pressure test is the only way to know for sure if you have high blood pressure. It is important to get a screening every year. A blood pressure test is a routine part of most medical appointments.
If your screening results indicate a potential issue, it’s important to follow the recommendations and take steps to get it under control and prevent issues before they become serious.
