Stroke & Vascular Screenings

Available at Cape Cod Healthcare

If a painless screening taking about 30 minutes would help you avoid a stroke, aneurysm or the consequences of peripheral vascular disease - would you take it?

Thousands of Americans are affected by vascular disease each year with no warning signs or symptoms. Our Stroke & Vascular Screening program provides simple, non-invasive ultrasound evaluations to diagnose the early onset of vascular disease.

Unfortunately, most private insurances or Medicare typically do not cover preventive screenings. We offer you an accurate and affordable option with our Stroke and Vascular screening program.

Call 1-888-928-7475 to find out the next dates available.

Space is limited. Register for your screening today.

Screenings are held at:

Stoneman Outpatient Center

2 Jan Sebastian Drive, Sandwich, MA

Fontaine Outpatient Center

525 Long Pond Drive, Harwich

Here are the three reasons why you should choose our program:

  1. Your screening will take place in a comfortable, private setting and be performed by a caring, credentialed technologist.
  2. Cape Cod Healthcare specialized physicians will interpret your screening exam and provide follow up recommendations when necessary.
  3. Within two weeks, you and your primary care physician will receive a comprehensive, easy to understand written report of your results.
