Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample

  1. newly diagnosed patients
  2. patients failing to reach target blood pressure of less than 140 on 90 on their current antihypertensive treatment

Exclusion criteria:
