PAD Screening

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a progressive disorder of the blood vessels outside of your heart, resulting in not enough blood flow to your extremities.

PAD symptoms include:

  • Painful leg cramps that occur with exercise and are relieved by rest
  • Changes in the skin or hair loss on your legs and/or feet
  • Wounds that won't heal on feet/legs
  • Weak pulses in your legs and feet
  • Pain (such as aching or burning) in your toes while lying flat
  • Paleness in your legs when  elevated
  • Thickened, opaque toenails
  • Numbness, weakness and heaviness in your feet or leg muscles

Varicose Vein Screening

Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged and sometimes bulging veins that are often visible under or through the skin. They are usually dark blue or purple in color. Left untreated, varicose veins can lead to more serious problems.

The most common symptoms include:

  • Bulging, twisted, swollen blue/purple veins
  • Spider veins in the affected leg(s)
  • Heaviness, burning, throbbing or cramping in the lower legs, especially after exercise or at night
  • Swelling in the lower legs
  • Skin discoloration around one or more varicose veins
  • Irregular whitish patches at the ankles
