Many people with heart conditions need to be on medications that help prevent clots. We provide remote and in-clinic support to ensure your anticoagulation therapy is safe and effective for your heart health needs.
Arrhythmia is a condition that causes your heart to beat at an abnormal or irregular pace, including too fast (tachycardia) or too slow (bradycardia). If you are diagnosed with arrhythmia, our team can offer a range of treatments to help normalize your heartbeat and relieve uncomfortable symptoms like palpitations.
We also provide in-office and remote ambulatory monitoring technology, such as Holter devices, to help us observe how your heart functions in real-time over a period of days or weeks.
Cardiac Wellness Exams
Routine cardiac wellness exams give us a picture of your current heart health and helps us adjust plans of care and identify any cardiac risk factors you may have, including abnormal cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity. Our cardiologists can then provide practical and personalized interventions to help modify these risk factors and improve your current and future well-being.
Congestive Heart Failure Management
Congestive heart failure happens when the heart doesn’t pump blood and/or fill with blood as well as it should. We’ll work with you to determine the best-fit treatment options for you, which may include medications, dietary modifications, and implantable devices.
Electrocardiograms (EKGs) and Echocardiograms
Electrocardiograms (EKGs) allow us to monitor the electrical activity of the heart. Echocardiograms use sound waves to help us take a picture of the heart structures. Both techniques can be important for diagnosing and monitoring heart conditions.
Exercise stress testing helps us understand how well your heart handles activity. During this test, you’ll walk on a progressively steeper and faster treadmill while we monitor your heart. We perform all our stress testing procedures under the direct supervision of experienced staff members.
Monitoring of Implanted Devices
Implanted devices like defibrillators and pacemakers are important for managing certain heart conditions. We use in-clinic and remote monitoring technology to ensure your permanent or temporary devices are functioning properly and promote fast and efficient troubleshooting if issues arise.
Nuclear cardiology techniques allow our physicians to non-invasively assess how well your heart pumps blood and evaluate the blood supply to the heart muscle itself. This can help us detect early warning signs of cardiac problems and guide future treatment decisions.
Peripheral Artery Disease Management
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) happens when the arteries that bring blood to your limbs get narrow and stop working as well. PAD can lead to serious complications like infections and limb loss. Let our cardiology team help you manage this condition and find relief from uncomfortable symptoms like leg pain and cramps.
Pulmonary Function Tests
Pulmonary function tests help us assess how well your lungs work, which has a close impact on the function and health of your heart.
