Confidence to Ask the Tough Questions – Dr. Zagum Bhatti

Samuel Ashe

Dr. Bhatti provides crucial information that helps you know which questions to ask of your doctor to make sure that you are receiving the diagnosis and treatment options that you deserve for Peripheral Artery Disease, Diabetic Ulcers, and Neuropathy.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the greatest cause of morbidity and mortality in the US. Over 40% of patients with CAD also have Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD).

How are Peripheral Artery Disease and Coronary Artery Disease Related?

In patients with clinically significant PAD, the prevalence of myocardial infarction is 2.5x higher than in those patients without PAD. Symptomatic PAD has been associated with 70% increase risk of cardiovascular events and 80% increased risk of death when compared to patients without PAD.

Questions to ask your doctor:

  • Will conservative therapies help my condition?
  • Are there alternatives to surgery?
  • Do I have to undergo amputation?
  • Can I reduce or reverse my risk of developing significant PAD/CAD?
  • If I have to undergo surgery or a procedure, what is the long-term game plan for my care?
