Why The Doc In A Box?
At age 40 and as a Family Nurse Practitioner with more than 20 years experience in healthcare, I found myself in a common seat of many patients. During a patient demonstration on how to check blood pressure, I had mistakenly found that I had high blood pressure. I’d dismissed the prelude of intermittent headaches to stress and my usual occurrences. Later that week, I became very faint and nauseated. Upon seeking emergency care my blood pressure was extremely high, and I realized that my well-being was threatened by a potential stroke or heart attack. I then, too, realized how easy one falls victim to the potential devastations of hypertension, commonly known as the “silent killer.” Most people think they are exempt from risk until they are not or it's too late.

My Daughter purchased this Doc In A Box for me as a gift, and it could not been at a perfect time! I like being able to monitor my blood pressure every day and being able to check my oxygen level is an added plus!
I love my box! The resource cards are extremely helpful. I taped them to my kitchen cabinet so that I am reminded daily to check my blood pressure, temperature, and heart rate daily.
I've never been diagnosed with high blood pressure or any other health concern, but I purchased The Doc In A Box in support of my friend. I began using the box to check my blood pressure at home, and I found it to be elevated. I checked it every day and it remained high. I was not scheduled to see my primary doctor until May, but I made an earlier appointment. It was high at my appointment, and I had kept a record of my blood pressure over the last six weeks. I monitored again for an additional 2 weeks with modifications after my doctor appointment with very little change. Two weeks later, I was able to report my findings to my doctor via a telemedicine appointment and was started on blood pressure medicine. I have developed a strong respect for The Doc In A Box! Gives true meaning to being proactive rather than reactive to your health.
