Cardiology focuses on disorders of the heart and the blood vessels. Cardiologists diagnose and treat conditions such as congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, electrophysiology, heart failure, and valvular heart disease. If your general medical doctor feels that you might have a significant heart or related condition, they will often call on a cardiologist for help. Symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pains, or dizzy spells often require special testing. Sometimes heart murmurs or ECG changes need the evaluation of a cardiologist.
Cardiologists help people with heart disease return to a full life and also counsel patients about the risks and prevention of heart disease. Most importantly, cardiologists are involved in the treatment of heart attacks, heart failure, and serious heart rhythm disturbances. Their skills and training are required whenever decisions are made about procedures such as cardiac catheterization, balloon angioplasty, or heart surgery.
Our team of highly trained cardiologists aims to provide patients with excellent care – every visit, every time. Before your doctor comes in to see you, they will have a good sense of you, your background, your health history, and your previous medical records. During your first appointment, your doctor will talk with you, do an exam based on your medical history and current health issues, and will discuss further testing, lab work or follow-up appointments that may be needed.
