What Is Hypertension?
One in every three adults, around 75 million Americans, has high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Hypertension is a serious condition that, if not properly treated, can place you at an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, and serious complications. High blood pressure often doesn’t present with any symptoms, making it difficult to know that you need medical treatment. This is why having a primary care doctor that pays attention is so important. At Health Direction Medical Center in Chicago, IL, Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel are committed to preventive care. This means that they can help keep an eye out for hypertension to diagnose and treat any serious issues early on.
Living with Hypertension
Individuals who are at a higher risk of developing high blood pressure are those with unhealthy lifestyles, as well as patients with a family history of hypertension and heart disease. These patients should have their blood pressure taken regularly and maintain a healthy diet. Smoking may increase your risk of hypertension so quitting should be considered and discussed with your provider. If you have previously been diagnosed with hypertension, our primary care providers are equipped and skilled to help manage your condition and live the best possible life.
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.
