Hypertension in Rochester Hills, MI & Belleville, MI

Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure, a very common condition among individuals of all ages in the United States. Hypertension occurs when the pressure of blood flowing through your body increases, whether as a result of narrow blood vessels or another cause. This increased pressure can lead to long-term tissue damage and potentially serious health complications, including heart disease, stroke, and more. Luckily, this condition can be managed with a combination of lifestyle changes and guidance from the staff at WellHealth Medical Associates. If you have hypertension or are at risk of this disease, we encourage you to schedule a wellness exam and discuss treatment options at our practice in Rochester Hills or Belleville, MI.

Hypertension is usually diagnosed with a blood pressure monitor, which uses a cuff placed around your arm to measure pressure in the arteries. If we determine that you have high blood pressure, we may follow up with lab testing (including blood or urine tests) and electrocardiogram readings to get a complete picture of your cardiovascular health. Depending on the cause of your hypertension, we may suggest a number of management guidelines, including quitting smoking, losing weight, and trying to reduce stress in your life. We might also prescribe medications to reduce blood pressure or build a medical weight loss program to help you bring your health into balance.

Mild hypertension may not present with any obvious symptoms, which is why WellHealth Medical Associates recommends regular wellness exams to monitor changes in our patients' heart health. Individuals with very high blood pressure may experience symptoms that include:

  • Frequent episodes of fatigue
  • Pain in the chest
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headaches
  • Blurry vision
  • Arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat)

I’ve been going here for years now. Dr. Murthy is a great doctor. Always looks out for my best interest. Only thing I’ve ever had a problem with is getting called on Friday night for video when my appt was on a Wednesday. But I understand there’s only 2 providers and a lot of patients. Other than that they helped me with a lot. Thank you guys

I have been a patient at Wellhealth for years now…I am always well taken care of, no matter what the reason of my visit. Staff has always been beyond great, even new faces…but Sarah is the secret sauce to this office. I appreciate everyone here and strongly recommend this office.

Dr. Murthy is incredibly knowledgeable in treating even the most complicated health issues. I have multiple autoimmune problems and since I’ve started seeing him, he has given me my life back! He is very understanding and compassionate and his superior knowledge in rare diseases make it so easy to talk to him and get the best treatments. I never believed it was possible for me to have a life without pain and I am forever grateful to him for giving me that! His PA Dr. Olivia is the best, she is very easy to talk to and very compassionate and knowledgeable as well. The entire staff at this office are amazing 😊 My 3 year old daughter and I are always happy to go in and see everyone! They make you feel very comfortable, like you’re family 😁 This is by far the best Primary Care office I have been to in over 10 years and I’m so blessed to have found them Thank you 🙏
