Cardiology Services We Offer
The right treatment starts with the right diagnosis. We offer the best available testing, including echocardiograms, electrocardiograms and monitoring devices such as loop recorders on site. Patients can be referred to an affiliate office for stress testing and vascular ultrasound. Cardiac catheterization is performed by our doctors at local hospitals.
Our heart doctors understand that each patient is different and are highly skilled in customizing the right treatment plan for your needs. As a new, state-of-the-art practice, we provide evaluation for the full range of advanced cardiac services. We determine whether patients may be candidates for hospital procedures such as angioplasty, stenting or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). We also offer personalized device therapy, which includes not only the placement of pacemakers and defibrillators, but also careful, ongoing maintenance and optimization. In addition, we are committed to the importance of prevention by treating risk factors for heart disease and helping you follow a heart healthy diet and lifestyle.

Tips For Heart Health
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but there are lots of lifestyle changes you can make to lower your risk. From getting up off the couch to skipping the fast food, these tips will help keep your cardiovascular system healthy.
1. Get Moving
Get your heart pumping with at least 30 minutes of physical activity and aerobic exercise every day. Find something you like to do so you’re more likely to stick with it, whether it’s brisk walking, swimming, bicycling, or spending time at the gym. Your heart doctor can help determine the best regimen for you.
2. Eat Right
A heart-healthy diet includes plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains, legumes, nuts, non-tropical vegetable oils, and fish and poultry without skin. It’s also important to cut back on sugar-sweetened beverages, sweets, red meat, excessive fat, and salt.
3. Maintain a Healthy Weight
Being overweight or obese is linked to a number of heart disease risk factors, such as hypertension (high blood pressure), high triglyceride and blood cholesterol levels, and diabetes. So follow a daily diet and exercise regimen that keeps your weight in check.
4. Stop Smoking
Because cigarette smoke narrows and damages arteries, it is vitally important not to smoke. It’s also crucial to lessen your exposure to secondhand smoke, which has been linked to coronary artery calcification, a build-up of calcium in the arteries that indicates heart disease.
5. Know the Warning Signs of Stroke and Heart Attack
When it comes to heart attack and stroke, quick treatment is crucial. While symptoms can vary, signs of heart attack can include discomfort near the middle of the chest that goes on for more than a few minutes, and possible discomfort in the neck, back, stomach, jaw, or one or both arms. Other symptoms are nausea, lightheadedness, and shortness of breath. Signs of stroke include face drooping, arm weakness, and speech difficulty. If these symptoms appear, call 911 immediately.
