Doctors to men: Take care of your health

Heartbeat

It’s been talked about for years…the fact that men are far less likely than women to see their doctors for preventative care and annual exams.

In recognition of Men’s Health Month, doctors with the Cardiovascular Institute of the South want to remind men how important it is to see a physician for regular check ups.  To prevent future health problems, there are several screenings men should get on a regular basis.  Among them:

*blood pressure
*cholesterol
*diabetes

Be sure to see your doctor if you have any unusual symptoms and even if you don’t, don’t put off having your annual check-up.  It could save your life.

Cardiovascular Institute of the South was founded in 1983 by Dr. Craig Walker, who first established the company as a one-physician practice in Houma, Louisiana. Driven by a desire to serve and heal people in his community, Dr. Walker envisioned CIS as a leader in the development of new techniques and technologies in the treatment of both coronary and peripheral artery diseases.

Today, CIS continues to grow and expand to multiple locations striving to make the most advanced cardiovascular care accessible to a wide spectrum of communities across Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi. We believe that our unwavering dedication to the CIS mission of providing the highest quality cardiovascular care has truly been the cornerstone of this successful growth.
