Overview

Clinical cardiologists care for patients with heart disease, chest pain, rhythm problems, valve and artery conditions. They work with other cardiology subspecialists such as cardiovascular surgeons, interventional radiologists and electrophysiologists when lifestyle modifications, medication management and other procedures have failed to reverse a heart condition.  

Conditions

We provide world renowned expert care for the diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular conditions and diseases.

Atrial Fibrillation (also supraventricular arrhythmia, arrhythmia aka abnormal heart rhythm).

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is the most common sustained arrhythmia. It is a serious condition where the upper chambers of the heart beat irregularly leading to…

Aortic Stenosis (also valvular heart disease aka heart valve disease).

Aortic stenosis, also called aortic valve stenosis, is when your heart’s aortic valve narrows and prevents the valve from fully opening.

Coronary Artery Disease (also myocardial infarction/heart attack, “blockages”)

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is caused by a build-up of plaque in the walls of the arteries of the heart, causing them to narrow over…

Deep Venous Thrombosis (aka blood clot)

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a deep vein and usually develops in the lower…

Heart Failure (cardiomyopathy aka heart muscle disease, also myocardial or heart inflammation).

Heart failure is when your heart cannot pump enough blood to meet your body’s needs.

Hyperlipidemia

Hyperlipidemia is better known as high cholesterol. Cholesterol is a waxy substance (fat) that your body produces and is also in the foods you eat.…

Hypertension

Post-stroke Care

If you’ve had a stroke, post-stroke care is important for you to relearn skills you’ve suddenly lost when part of your brain is damaged.

Pericardial Disease

Pericardial disease, also called pericarditis, is an inflammation any of the layers of the pericardium, a sac which surrounds the heart.

Treatments

We’re committed to providing individualized, compassionate treatment for every patient.

Right Heart Cardiac Catheterization

A right heart catheterization is a procedure that lets your doctor to see how well your heart is pumping and to measure the blood pressure…

Transthoracic Echocardiogram

Exercise Stress Echocardiogram

An exercise stress echocardiogram is done to see how your heart responds during stress or exercise and checks if you have narrowing in your heart…

Electrocardiogram

An electrocardiogram (ECG) records the electrical activity of your heart to diagnose common heart problems.

Direct Current Cardioversion

Direct current cardioversion is an outpatient procedure used to restore normal heart rhythm if you have arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats).

Exercise Treadmill Test (stress test)

An exercise treadmill test is done so your doctor can assess how your heart responds to strenuous exercise.

Coronary Angiography

A coronary angiography is a test using X-ray imaging to see if there are any blockages or narrowing of the arteries in your heart.

Coronary Angioplasty

Coronary angioplasty is an interventional procedure that your cardiologist uses to diagnose and treat blockage or narrowing in a coronary artery.

Coronary Calcium Scan

A coronary calcium scan is a non-invasive test performed to detect blocked or clogged coronary arteries, using a computerized tomography (CT) scan.

Cardiovascular risk reduction (cardiac health maintenance or cardiac “check up”)

There are several health conditions that can increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes.

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is a non-invasive way for your doctor to obtain measurements of your blood pressure readings over a 24-hour period to see…
