High blood pressure is often called the silent killer because it has no symptoms.
Having high blood pressure is a significant risk factor for developing stroke and a heart attack. If you have high blood pressure, you should work closely with your doctor to keep it under control. Managing it can greatly reduce your heart disease risk. Our doctors can help you manage your condition.
