COVID and Telehealth

2020 has been a crazy year for medical practitioners. For almost a year, we've been dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic. But one of the more indirect health repercussions has been patients who are too fearful of the virus to seek treatment for their unrelated health issues. At Apex we've responded with a robust commitment to telehealth services so we can continue to help patients stay safe and healthy. Schedule your telehealth appointment today!

Cardiovascular Effects

Diabetes is an extremely important condition to be aware of when it comes to cardiovascular health. People with diabetes are twice as likely to develop heart disease, and also face an increased risk of Peripheral Arterial Disease. Diabetes and cardiovascular healh are very much linked, so if you have Diabetes or are at risk of Diabetes, you should also undergo cardiovascular screening immediately.


Happy holidays! December is an important time for many people, with Chanukah, Christmas, Yule, Kwanzaa, and New Year's Eve all occurring within the month. We hope you have a happy and healthy holiday season and look forward to providing care for you in the new year.
2021 is almost here! It's been an eventful year, and we've seen a lot of medical growth and development. 2020 was defined by the COVID pandemic, and healthcare heroes risked so much to keep patients healthy. We hope that in 2021 we can use what we learned this past year to become even better healthcare providers.
