Are you at risk for high blood pressure?

Many of the risk factors for high blood pressure are under your control.

High blood pressure is a serious medical condition. It's one of the leading risk factors for heart disease and early death, according to the American College of Cardiology (ACC). It's also really common—nearly 1 in 2 adults in the U.S. has it, according to the ACC/American Heart Association (AHA) High Blood Pressure Guidelines.

Anyone can get high blood pressure. Fortunately, a number of the factors that increase your risk are things you can change.

Flu 101

Flu season is upon us and for some people, the flu is more than unpleasant, it's downright dangerous. You can get protected with a quick and simple vaccine, even if you've had a COVID-19 vaccine.

The flu, or influenza, is caused by a virus that infects the respiratory system. Though colds are also caused by viruses, the symptoms of the two illnesses have some differences. The flu is much more likely to be accompanied by fever, headache and extreme exhaustion.

New patients welcome.

Same day sick appointments available.
