Preventing & Treating Heart Problems

Preventing & Treating Heart Problems

Our program specializes in preventing and treating heart problems, with a focus on preventing heart disease in the first place. We also help patients recover and finish rehabilitation after having heart problems. Patients receive a comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment, and—based on these results—our team of physicians, nurses, exercise physiologists, and nutrition experts work to create an individual plan and educate patients on how to improve their heart health.

Our patients have a lower risk for recurring heart disease because of our preventive cardiology education programs. Our education programs also improve patients’ lifestyle and quality of life. To find out if you can participate in this program, contact us.
