Why is it important?
Did you know how your cholesterol level and lifestyle factors affect your heart health?
Did you know that over the next five years in Australia, there is an estimated 76,500 cardiovascular related incidents expected to occur including heart attack and stroke.
This 40-minute consultation with both a nurse and doctor will include a discussion about your family health history, lifestyle factors and what you eat, as well as an examination of your blood pressure and a plan for the future to help prevent any cardiovascular events. Your doctor will also discuss the results of your Cholesterol blood test which you will be required to have prior to your appointment.
