Dr. Gail Levee M.D. Expands Practice with Vascular Centers of America Test Center
Redondo, CA, April 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Wimbledon Health Partners, a national provider of Vascular Centers of America (VCOA), an on-site diagnostic testing company, announced the opening of a new test center in cooperation with Dr. Gail Levee M.D. VCOA is a network of national practicing physicians that provide diagnostic cardiovascular testing (echocardiogram and vascular scans), with quality, state-of-the-art, in-office procedures.
Dr. Levee, a physician serving patients in the Redondo, CA area, has recently affiliated with VCOA. "In general, I am just much happier now that I know my patients are getting the tests that I determine are medically necessary. Oftentimes, when patients are referred to outside testing centers you take your chances that the patient will follow through on your order. Bringing testing in-house increases the likelihood that the patient will follow through," stated Dr. Levee, who will remain on-site to oversee procedures.
The #1 and #3 killers of Americans are cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular disease. VCOA and Dr. Levee intend to educate and inform patients about the high prevalence of these two deadly diseases with a shared mission to reduce their incidences. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognizes cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular disease as the leading preventable killers of Americans.
Cardiovascular diagnostic testing and ultrasounds are able to look inside your arteries in a non-invasive manner to identify health problems your doctor may not be able to see, before symptoms even show.
