The Total Cardiovascular Picture
Unlike many other practices that focus exclusively on the treatment of cardiovascular disease itself, we focus on the total cardiovascular picture from prevention to rehabilitation. We consult closely with our patients and provide the advanced screening techniques that will help determine and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The Heart Center physicians will work closely with the primary care team helping to cultivate a preventive cardiovascular process of care. The process of prevention will establish the risk of a patient before experiencing a heart and/or cardiovascular event and help to prevent them in the future. The risk will be established using a detailed history/physical, advanced blood work, and targeted subclinical atherosclerotic testing.
Patients are ultimately placed into three groups - low, medium, and high risk - based on the probability of their experiencing a cardiovascular problem. Your patients will then be advised on the best path forward, through educating them on the ways to choose healthier lifestyles. to making smarter nutritional choices, to providing them with health coaches, and if necessary. to more personalized and individual care at the Heart Center offices. 1.1.
