They found 9 patients to be at high risk and an additional 5 at moderate risk. The patients were advised to seek follow up for varicose vein treatment and high blood pressure as well. A big thanks to our dedicated staff giving of their time to help the community today. Volunteers included Brigitte Jean Kelly, Sandra Schwaner, Brian Holben, Debbie Berry, Shauna Clark, Mike Thomas, Dr. Park and Dr. Matsumoto. Job well done folks!
