What is a Stroke?

Strokes are a leading cause of disability and death among Americans. Individuals may experience a stroke when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is blocked by a clot or bursts. When either of these serious events occurs, part of the brain can't get the oxygen and blood it requires, leading to the death of brain cells. The good news is that according to the American Stroke Association, 80% of strokes may be preventable. Nurse practitioner Zachary Lott at Nexus HealthSpan and his team offer a patient-centered approach to whole-body wellness, including personalized plans for stroke prevention.

How Do You Prevent a Stroke?

A stroke is a dangerous disease that causes brain cells to die. Zachary can help you control and treat the risk factors that can lead to a stroke. High blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, a poor diet, lack of physical activity, obesity, and high cholesterol can lead to a stroke if left untreated. A preventive care plan can keep you on the right track and help you live a healthy life. During your consultation at Nexus HealthSpan, Zachary will discuss your health history and may order blood tests, recommend lifestyle modifications, and more to help manage your medical conditions and put you on the path to healthy living and lower stroke risk.

Zach is great, he's so knowledgable about what he dose. I feel like I understand what cholesterol is better than my regular doctor does, after leaving his office. Although he was able to show me that I have plaque in my arteries on an ultrasound machine, he gave me a plan to address all of my concerns and what he though was medically necessary. I never knew that I had prediabetes, but after Zach went through my old medical records, it's something thats been passed over for years. I'm eating clean now, exercising more, and taking a couple of supplements and one medication. He even showed me research studies on everything that I am putting in my body. I haven't felt better about my health, ever. Knowing that my dad and my grandfather both died of a heart attack, I thought my fate was sealed, until now.

A+ - I had a WONDERFUL experience at Nexus. Zachary Lott was kind, informative, and answered all my questions without rush. And, reviewed previous images taken by a DIFFERENT technician at a different faculty and identified plaque that was not reported properly before. I will be bringing other family members to Nexus for QUALITY care and a plan to prevent further cardiovascular disease, and improve my overall health. I’m so happy I found Nexus. The right doctor and facility make all the difference.
