Premier HeartWorks Offers a Unique Gift for Mother’s Day

Tell mom you much you love her with a gift for her heart.

DAYTON, Ohio, May 2, 2007 - If you are looking for a gift for mom this Mother’s Day other than flowers or candy, consider this idea. The staff of Premier HeartWorks suggests showing your mom how much you love her by presenting her with a unique present – a gift certificate for a heart screening which will benefit mom for the rest of her life.

Gift certificates are $99 and provide a heart health “snapshot” through a comprehensive cardiac risk assessment screening.

“Though heart disease is the leading cause of death in both sexes, each year a significantly larger number of women die from it. And to make matters worse, studies suggest that women are far less likely than men to be tested or treated for heart disease,” said Mukul Chandra, MD, a cardiologist with Miami Valley Hospital. “If you love your mom and want to celebrate many more occasions with her, a gift certificate to our program is an excellent idea.”

A HeartWorks screening predicts a person’s likelihood of having a heart attack or stroke in the next 10 years. “If we learn through the screening a person is at risk, we can recommend further testing and suggest diet and lifestyle changes to help lower the chances of a heart attack or stroke,” said Dr. Chandra.

Another benefit of HeartWorks is that all of the experts needed to get a patient on track for a healthy heart are in one location where testing is done. An exercise specialist, registered dietician, and cardiac nurses provide one-on-one counseling. Dr Chandra reviews all the clinical information and provides feedback to the patient and the referring physician.

A physician referral or insurance approval is not required for the screening. All tests are done in one session and typically take about one hour to complete.
