Our state-of-the-art technology uncovers invisible risks.
Optimal Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention Center employs the most advanced diagnostic equipment and methods available today. Although this breakthrough technology exists, either it is not commonly performed, readily available, or inadequately covered by insurance companies. Hence, patients usually do not receive the testing they deserve to discover health risks invisible in standard medical evaluations.
At Optimal Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention Center, advanced, non-invasive testing and diagnostics is only a fraction of what we do. Accurately synthesizing test results to meet individual needs requires a high level of expertise and dedication, which Dr. Feyrer-Melk caringly commits to each of her patients.

The BioZ test provides information about your heart’s ability to deliver blood to the rest of your body, the force your heart has to pump against with each heartbeat, and the amount of fluid in your chest. You may be familiar with the ECG or EKG test, which measures the electrical function of the heart. The BioZ test measures the mechanical function of the heart and provides different information than an EKG.
This simple, in office oral bacterial analysis shows whether you harbor significant levels of “red bacteria” implicated in the increased risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and certain cancers. Dr. Feyrer-Melk will work with your dentist to alleviate this risk.
Tests the lining of the inside of the cells using a 5 minute arm-cuff to assess function and vascular reactivity.
