Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure. It is a common condition that eventually affects most of us, but if left untreated it can lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Many people have hypertension for years without any symptoms, but damage to the body is still being done. Anyone 18 or older should have a blood pressure screening done at least every two years, and people over 40 or those ages 18 to 39 with a high risk of high blood pressure should be checked annually. It is easy for a doctor to detect if you have hypertension, and to work with you to control it. Please call 561-HEALTHY (561-432-5849) today to schedule an appointment with one of our outstanding providers who can help determine if you have high blood pressure.
