At Community Care Family Practice, our providers are seasoned experts in helping patients manage their high blood pressure via medications, lifestyle adjustments and consistent monitoring. This condition, also known as hypertension, has been dubbed the “silent killer” because despite being a contributor to stroke, heart failure, kidney disease and other potentially life-threatening problems, it is almost always symptomless until the damage has been done. That’s one more reason why it’s so important to schedule (and keep) that appointment for your annual physical.  

If you live in Zephyrhills, Dade City or a nearby community and need to get your blood pressure checked, contact our office at 813.788.3582 or complete an appointment request online.
