Some of the medical conditions we evaluate and treat
- Arrhythmia - Irregular beating of the heart that may lead to stroke or sudden death.
- Cardiomyopathy - A serious disease in which the heart muscle becomes inflamed or weak and does not work as well as it should. It can cause enlargement of the heart and heart failure.
- Cholesterol - As your blood cholesterol levels rise, so does your risk for cardiovascular disease.
- Congenital heart disease in adults - Heart defects with which you were born with may not affect your heart until you are an adult.
- Coronary artery disease - When the arteries that supply your heart muscle are blocked, your heart is deprived of oxygen. That can lead to heart damage or a heart attack.
- Diabetes - Dramatically increases your risk of heart disease and stroke by two to four times.
- Heart attack - A risk for women as well as men, a heart attack can cause permanent damage to the heart muscle or death.
- Heart failure - When the heart is unable to pump blood with enough force, it may cause fluid to back up in your lungs, feet, and ankles, and fatigue, among other symptoms.
Obesity - Defined as 30 pounds or more over your ideal weight, obesity is considered a major risk factor for coronary heart disease and heart attack.
- Peripheral artery disease - Many people do not have symptoms of pain in the hips, thighs, or calves, but presence of this disease increases risk of heart attacks or strokes.
