Why We Do It
We are passionate about helping people achieve their optimal health. We thrive on seeing our patients regain their quality of life.
What We Do
We treat each patient’s cardiovascular condition with the best evidence-based medical therapy. But we don’t stop there. . . patients also receive written prescriptions for lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, and smoking cessation.
We look after all cardiac conditions and assess patients with undifferentiated symptoms yet to be diagnosed. We also work with patients at risk of developing heart disease.
ECG, exercise stress testing, Holter monitors, event/loop recorders, and 24-hour blood pressure monitors. For patients who cannot wait several months for an echocardiogram, we perform focused echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart).
Our Registered Dietitian is available to see patients outside the cardiac rehab and fitness programs.
