Gert of Plainfield had a family history of heart disease, but no symptoms of heart problems. As a retired nurse of 30 years, she understood the importance of getting a heart scan and she had it on her checklist of things to do. She never dreamt the scan would reveal a dangerous level of plaque build-up in her heart.
As a result of this unsettling news, Gert took the power of her health into her own hands.
She met with her family practice physician Dr. Julie Walters and cardiologist Dr. Kirk Parr to determine a plan of action. Gert has since taken control of her health and become the best patient she’s ever had. The doctors adjusted her medications and Gert adjusted her lifestyle – changing her eating habits and adding exercise – so that she can be around for her grandkids for many years to come.
