One Warning Sign Resulted in Quadruple Bypass Surgery for Seemingly Healthy Patient

At 55-years-old, Doug Winters headed into a regular checkup appointment fully expecting to walk out of the doctor’s office with a clean bill of health.  His provider recommended routine tests, including his first colonoscopy.

During the procedure, Kyle Johnson, PA-C, noticed elevated blood pressure and ordered a stress test.

Precautionary Test Led to Emergency Triple Bypass Surgery for One Glenpool Resident
