Healthy Heart Associate Program

There’s no way around it:  the American health care system is not designed to optimize your health.  Cost considerations, confusing bureaucracy, and competing interest groups have combined to create a bloated mess that makes the patient work twice as hard for half the care.

There’s no way around it: the American health care system has become a blemish on our nation’s reputation. As a health care innovator, the Boone Heart Institute has the advantage of standing outside of the system. Our view is not clouded by financial or political motives. We are focused on health.

Heart disease is the #1 cause of death for Americans, and it is largely preventable. Boone Heart Institute performs examinations that use cutting-edge tests to identify potential problems early on.

Dr. Boone and his team then implement custom prevention programs geared toward reducing your risk factors. Because of this advanced preventive approach, the Boone Heart Institute has never had any patient under their care suffer a heart attack or stroke.

The First Step Towards a Healthy Heart

Dr. Boone’s career-long mission to eradicate heart disease has culminated in the following testing package, designed as an introductory option for those who want to work with us to take control over their cardiovascular health.

The Associate Program Includes:

 

Step 1

Cardiovascular Health, Heart Attack and Stroke Assessment

  • Carotid Plaque Assessment and lntima Media Thickness 

    This is an independent predictor of Heart Attack and Stroke Risk. A measurement of the thickness of the lining of your arteries, where vulnerable “hot” plaque can grow.

  • Arterial Age Assessment

    Determines the relative age of your arteries using the Carotid IMT measurement. We want to make sure your arteries aren’t over the hill before you are.

  • Advanced Cardiovascular and Inflammation Bloodwork

    Unique blood tests to measure vascular inflammation to determine the presence of “hot” plaque, which is vulnerable to fracture, along with measurements of cholesterol particle size and number, searching for underlying genetic issues beyond standard cholesterol that could put you at risk for heart disease, stroke, and dementia.

  • Thyroid Ultrasound

    An ultrasound of the thyroid and adjacent structures in the neck.  Searching for structural abnormalities, cysts, nodules and high / low thyroid health.  

Step 2

Stress Assessment

  • Echocardiography

    An evaluation of heart muscle size and function, both at rest and under simulated mental stress (see M.O.S.T. Protocol). Additional assessment of heart valves included.

  • M.O.S.T. Protocol / Mental Office Stress Testing 

    Heart attacks are much more likely to occur during times of stress.  M.O.S.T protocol is The Boone Heart lnstitute’s unique stress and blood pressure assessment, designed to measure the heart’s activity during the presence of stress factors that trigger heart attack, stroke, and heart failure.

Step 3

Consultation and Recommendation

This is your opportunity to have a comprehensive discussion of lifestyle, medical history and personal concerns with a world expert in heart disease prevention and stress medicine.

Each Associate Program includes a consultation and individual recommendations from Dr. Boone – who will personally review your results – to complete the story that numbers alone can’t tell.  These recommendations are unique to your current cardiovascular status and will help explain the nuances of your ongoing personal health. 

Pricing for Associate Program: $1995

The Associate Program is an introductory diagnostic program designed to give you a comprehensive image of your overall cardiovascular health. If you still have concerns based on your preliminary results, we are equipped to continue testing and treatment to ensure that the benefits of your visit last a lifetime.
