General Cardiovascular Diseases

Our Board Certified cardiologists specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of cardiac diseases. The conditions we treat include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Coronary Artery Disease: A disease caused by a build-up of plaque in the coronary arteries which supply the heart muscle with blood leading to reduced blood flow and oxygen supply.
  • Heart Failure: Heart Failure is a chronic condition in which the heart is unable to pump as efficiently as it normally should.
  • Cardiomyopathy: Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle in which it becomes thick, stiff, enlarged, or weak, thus potentially leading to heart failure.
  • Valvular Heart Disease: A disease of at least one of the four heart valves in which it becomes either stenotic, meaning the valve gets narrowed or tight generally due to hardening causing a restriction of blood flow, or regurgitant, which means the valve does not close tightly causing it to be leaky.
  • Cardiac Arrythmias: A group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow. Also known as a cardiac dysrhythmia.
  • Peripheral Vascular Diseases: Narrowing or hardening of blood vessels that move blood to or from the extremities.
  • Hypertension Related Heart Disease: Heart disease caused by or related to high blood pressure.
  • Carotid Artery Disease: A disease in which plaque builds up in the carotid arteries which can lead to reduced blood flow to the brain.
  • Dyslipidemia: A medical condition in which there is an abnormal level of cholesterol or lipids circulating in the blood stream, generally an elevated amount referred to as hyperlipidemia.
  • Cardiac Diseases with Diabetes, Elderly, and Pregnancy: Heart abnormalities complicated by other conditions such as diabetes, age or pregnancy, which require monitoring and care.
  • Pre- And Post-Operative Evaluation: A clinical cardiovascular evaluation prior to surgery in order to assess an individual’s risk of undergoing a particular surgery (pre-operative) or following an operation to review an individual’s cardiovascular condition and subsequent management (post-operative).
