Blood Pressure Checks at the Department of Family Medicine
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is monitored by checking the blood pressure.
A doctor or nurse in one of our family medicine offices can check your blood pressure as part of your routine physical.
Our family medicine doctors will then recommend an appropriate treatment approach for managing hypertension, which may include diet restrictions or prescription of certain medications.
Our UPMC patient education materials provide additional information on Blood Pressure.
