This $60 Screening Package Could Save Your Life Too

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women, yet most people think this only involves their hearts. Vascular disease involves the entire circulatory system – not just the heart – and, if not detected, can cause a stroke.

Beaufort Memorial offers a complete vascular screening package for $60 by appointment in Beaufort and at our Okatie Medical Pavilion. You'll learn your risk of having a stroke. You will learn if you have peripheral vascular disease or an aortic aneurysm, or plaque formation in your carotid arteries.

Please note that this screening package is not covered by insurance. To schedule your screening in Beaufort or Okatie, call 843-522-5635.
