According to the American Heart Association Heart Disease and Stroke are America's number one and number three killers. However far too many people don't recognize all the major symptoms of stroke that's why there's a huge effort underway to educate people about the tell-tale signs. We talked to a local doctor about why it's important to recognize those symptoms early and act quickly whenever you suspect trouble. Dr. Grace Mukamana neurologist from Doctors Hospital, says, “if you have sudden inability to speak or numbness to one side of the body, can't see or walk, those are signs of stroke most likely. Even if you hesitant and don't know you should come to Doctor Hospital to evaluate whether it is a stroke or not within three hours to give proper medication”. Doctors Hospital has just been recognized with an advanced certification as a primary stroke center by the joint commission and American Heart Association.
