Keeping Your Heart Healthy

Our cardiologists keep your heart healthy by educating you about the basics of heart care. If you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, make an appointment with a cardiologist:

  • chest pain or pressure in your chest
  • shortness of breath
  • nausea or vomiting
  • sweaty and clammy skin
  • dizziness or fainting
  • unexplained weakness or fatigue
  • rapid or irregular pulse 

Our cardiologists and other specialists will help you find the most accurate diagnosis for your condition. Our specialists also work with patients to prevent past heart problems from happening again, and to prevent heart disease problems from developing in the future.

Conditions & Services

Our cardiologists also see a number of patients outside the Salt Lake area, including other areas of Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and Wyoming. To see where they practice outside Salt Lake City, visit our Outreach Program.

Everyone has a racing heart from time to time. Stress, exercise, or even too much alcohol or caffeine can cause your heart to beat faster than normal. But if your heart races a lot—or if you notice your heartbeat is often irregular—then you should see a doctor.

Real Patients, Real Stories: CTEPH

Tracee Bessinger thought it was a little strange when one day she ran out of breath walking from her bedroom to her bathroom. She figured maybe she was just out of shape, but the breathlessness continued with even less exertion and fewer steps.
