Nancy,
    May I suggest that in order to make an informed opinion that you take
the time to visit one of our screening events and see exactly what we do and
how.
The Quakertown, Pa screening that you refer to, was supervised by my
Philadelphia, PA  Team Leader who is ARDMS registered with over 15 years of
vascular experience.  I do not agree that our flyer is misleading.  Our
clients are quite sophisticated and believe in being advocates for their own
healthcare.  We make it quite clear that we are in no way trying to replace
the services provided by local hospitals and would like to work in
conjunction with area physicians to identify asymptomatic individuals with
significant disease, through the screening process. So, before you make any
judgements, I urge you to take the time to visit us.  I consider myself to
be a part of the vascular community as well and would welcome the chance to
change your mind.  Call me!
