The Cardiovascular Prevention and Lipid Clinic at the Sayre cardiovascular clinic offers expertise and a wide range of services proven to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and complications. The clinic has collaborated with Guthrie Weight Loss Center to help patients lose weight if obesity is their predominant risk factor.
Our goal is to identify your cardiovascular risk factors early and work closely with you to reduce their negative effects. One such risk factor is elevated lipids, or cholesterol.
We know that regular communication improves your chances for long-term success. We also recognize that it may not be convenient for you to drive to Sayre for appointments -- that’s why we offer appointments via telemedicine.
