Reporter Ken Benitez and Dr. William Kopfler of
North Oaks Cardiology
talk about the importance of blood pressure control to your overall health.

it is without any obvious symptoms until a major problem occurs. If left
untreated, high blood pressure can damage the kidneys and increase the
risk of stroke, heart attack or other heart and blood vessel problems.
