Presented by Sharp Grossmont Hospital

With everything on your plate in a given day, it can be hard to find time for yourself. But while you’re getting through your to-do list, your heart could be trying to tell you that it needs some attention.

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women — and the symptoms aren’t always obvious. As East San Diego County’s leading provider of heart and vascular care, Sharp Grossmont Hospital now offers a cardiovascular evaluation designed to give busy women like you a clearer picture of your heart health in just a few hours.

Our comprehensive evaluation combines screenings and personalized consultations with a nurse and dietitian to detect health risks and help enhance your overall well being. And, for a limited time, we’re offering this evaluation at a discounted price of $149.

Screenings
  • Abdominal aortic ultrasound to check for weakened aortic walls (aneurysms)
  • Ankle-brachial index to test for peripheral arterial disease
  • Blood glucose check to test for prediabetes and metabolic syndrome
  • Blood pressure check
  • Body mass index (BMI), body fat and hip-waist ratio measurements
  • Carotid ultrasound to detect early signs of plaque buildup in arteries
  • Cholesterol panel
  • C-reactive protein assessment to test for arterial inflammation
  • Lifestyle and family history analysis

Personalized Consultations

Nutrition — You will get a 30-minute consultation with a registered dietitian to create a nutrition plan customized for your lifestyle and health goals.

Results Overview — After your screenings, you will meet with a registered nurse to review your findings and get answers to any questions you may have. If needed, we will design a follow-up treatment plan involving your primary care doctor. 

At $149, this comprehensive cardiovascular health evaluation is a real value. Comparable screenings can cost more than $400 and do not include consultations with an experienced clinician and dietitian.

Please note, although this is a women’s cardiovascular health evaluation, this screening is appropriate for men and they are welcome to enroll.
