Poor Circulation Can Lead to Serious Health Conditions New York, NY

Poor Circulation Can Lead to Serious Health Conditions

Doctor revising medical tests and filling out patient medical history.

If you are suffering from poor circulation, there are associated health risks. Non-healing ulcers can develop quickly, infections are more serious, and amputation is often an unavoidable reality. In addition, when blood cannot flow through the arteries, you risk gangrene which can become life-threatening.

Without vascular testing, you may not even know you suffer from poor circulation. This potentially serious health condition can lead to a range of secondary complications. Once symptoms appear, it is often too late for treatments to produce effective outcomes.

Vascular Screening

At his New York offices, Dr. Benvenisty can provide vascular screening on a regular schedule. These appointments are set according to your specific health needs. Those with diabetes or a family history of circulatory or cardiovascular disease should take advantage of this service. If you smoke or are older than 65 will also benefit from vascular testing.

Vascular screening is a preventative measure. Proactive treatment can prevent health complications from developing. Self-care means avoiding life-threatening conditions when you are in a high-risk category for poor circulation.

Restoring Blood Flow

Dr. Benvenisty will determine the cause of your poor circulation before offering treatment. A consultation will involve exploring your medical history, family history, and lifestyle. He will then conduct a comprehensive examination to identify any contributing health issues.

Treatment plans are based on the individual needs of each patient. As a vascular health specialist, Dr. Benvenisty is an enthusiastic advocate of preventative medicine. If you are at risk of developing complications, regular screening is recommended as a precaution.

Symptoms of Poor Circulation

Many health conditions can cause poor circulation, presenting different symptoms. Shared symptoms include numbness, tingling, stinging, and cramps in the affected limb. An example of a condition that produces unique symptoms is peripheral artery disease. In addition, sufferers may experience erectile dysfunction, which does not occur with other types of poor circulation.

If you develop any symptoms associated with poor circulation, Dr. Benvenisty can provide diagnosis and treatment. However, please, you mustn’t ignore these potentially serious health conditions. Call our New York offices today for an appointment.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
