How can a preventive cardiologist help you?

If you have heart disease, we work to help decrease your future risk of a heart attack. This will be done by helping you optimally treat the factors that caused your condition.

For patients who do not have a known history of heart disease, we offer a detailed review of risk factors, and determine if heart screenings or tests are necessary based on your individual health history. Risk factors which put you at higher risk for developing heart disease are:

  • Family history of heart disease
  • Elevated cholesterol levels
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar or diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Tobacco smoking
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Lack of exercise/sedentary lifestyle

If you have three or more of the above risk factors or you are concerned about your family history, please complete online form and we will contact you to schedule an appointment.

Uncontrollable risk factors that also may play a role in your risk for developing heart disease include age, gender and ethnicity.

Our preventive cardiology team will take all of these factors into consideration when assessing your risk and developing your personalized plan.
