CIMT Available in Indianapolis
A CIMT is a Carotid Intima-Media Test and is now available in Indianapolis! It tells you a lot about your cardiovascular age. It is an excellent progress marker we can use in our functional medicine practice to measure heart age and health. This service is available annually to our Age Well to Excell program and our Hope Care concierge patients.
