PAD Diagnosis

Our specialists have years of experience in diagnosing and treating PAD. Our team includes:

  • Interventional cardiologists
  • Vascular medicine specialists
  • Vascular surgeons
  • Preventive cardiologists
  • Vascular disease specialists
  • Interventional radiologists

Starting with your very first visit, we get to the source of your pain so you can start to feel better. Here’s what to expect:

  • Review of your family health history
  • Questions about your symptoms, medical history and lifestyle
  • A thorough vascular evaluation where we check things like your pulse and blood flow in your legs
  • We also look for wounds that are not healing properly as well as changes in your hair, skin or nails
  • We also perform Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) testing. This simple test compares blood pressure levels in your ankle to the blood pressure in your arm to see how well blood is flowing to your limbs.
  • If your ABI is positive, you have PAD. You may need additional testing to determine which vein or veins are causing your discomfort so we can recommend the right treatment. Learn more about PAD treatments.

If your ABI is negative, we may ask you to come back to the clinic in a year to see if there are any changes in your condition.
