What Is Hyperlipidemia?
Also known as high cholesterol, hyperlipidemia occurs when there are too many fats in your blood. When left untreated, this condition can cause blockages in your blood vessels, increasing your risk for heart attack or stroke. Hyperlipidemia may not always promote visible symptoms, which is why it is important to receive proper diagnostic testing to determine your cholesterol levels. At Health Direction Medical Center, Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel can help to properly diagnose and provide optimal treatment plans for high cholesterol, improving your overall wellness. To learn more, contact one of our Chicago, IL locations to schedule your initial consultation.
How Is Hyperlipidemia Treated?
During your initial visit to our facility, our team of skilled physicians will perform diagnostic tests and identify your medical history to evaluate your cholesterol levels and any potential risks. If your levels are elevated but not within a dangerous range, monitoring and lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise and a low cholesterol diet, may be recommended. In other instances, prescription medications may be given to help lower your levels. You may need to continue to attend follow-up appointments in order to receive continued monitoring of your levels to determine the effectiveness of the medication and make any necessary changes to your treatment plan.
Health Direction Medical Center Reviews
I found my forever Dr when I found Dr. Ramirez. I have seen a few doctors in my day and I work in the Healthcare system. Dr. Ramirez is so professional and courteous, she takes the time to listen to me as a patient and she really focuses on my overall health. Not one to just prescribe medicatiin just because she can. I can't believe I picked her out of a list of doctors because I had to because of my insurance. Turns out it was the best choice I could ever make.
Great medical office, wonderful and warm experience from start to finish. Appreciate Dr. Ramirez taking time to go over the diagnosis clearly and treatment options. Was referred over by my Friend and can see why. Highly recommended.
(Translated by Google) A person who is worth 10 people, simply beautiful and who helps his patients so much with his charisma and sympathy, thank you Dr. Ramírez, several people are very proud of you, take good care of yourself because you take good care of us ❤️🙏🏻 (Original) Una persona que vale por 10 personas simplemente bella y que ayuda tanto a sus pacientes con su carisma y su simpatía gracias doctora Ramírez varias personas estamos muy orgullosas de usted cuídese mucho por que usted nos cuida bastante ❤️🙏🏻

Hands down, Dr. Ramirez is the best doctor i've ever had. She has been my PCP and friend for over 10 years. I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you Dr. Ramirez for your dedication to my health, your kindness, and friendship. D.L.
