Early prevention can help determine your risk for heart disease, stroke and other serious conditions.
Wellstar’s Know Your Heart program is a preventive self-pay screening program. Testing is performed at one of four Wellstar Cardiovascular Medicine offices including: Kennestone Outpatient Pavillion, Woodstock, WellStar Acworth Health Park, and our new WellStar East Cobb Health Park.
Patients may choose between our basic and advanced risk assessment screening options. If you are currently asymptomatic, over 18 years old and do not have risk factors for heart disease you are eligible for the Basic Risk Assessment. The Advanced Risk Assessment includes a Heart Screen. To participate in the Advanced Heart screen you must be at least 40 years old and have two of the following risk factors.
Risk factors for heart disease include:
- Family History of Heart Disease
- Current or Past Tobacco Use
- Abnormally High Stress
- Overweight or Obese
- Female age 65 or older
- Male age 55 or older
All patients will receive a personalized report of their Know Your Heart results reviewed by a WellStar Cardiovascular Medicine provider.
