Vascular disease includes any condition that affects the circulatory system. Examples are peripheral arterial disease and carotid artery disease. 

Preventative screenings are important to stay healthy. Dr. Tom Nguyen is a vascular surgeon with Sierra Surgical Associates. 

He's my guest in tonight's Ask the Doctor segment. To speak with him between 5-6pm, call 775-858-2222. For future questions, call his office at 775-982-6270.  

To get an appointment for a screening, call 775-356-6662 (NNMC).
