Are You At Risk For Heart Disease?

Are You At Risk For Heart Disease?

Maybe one of your siblings had bypass surgery at an early age or one of your parents had a heart attack. Or maybe you’ve had worrisome symptoms and haven’t gotten a clear explanation for them. A new – and smart – trend in health care is that more people are seeking the advice of a cardiologist before something bad happens.

Heart disease includes rhythm abnormalities and structural problems of the heart. But the most common type is coronary artery disease – a buildup of plaque in the arteries of the heart.

While coronary artery disease remains one of the leading causes of death in the United States, it doesn’t have to be a death sentence. Our cardiologists can evaluate your risk and show you ways to minimize that risk. If you are diagnosed with coronary artery disease, our cardiologists are experts in the treatments and techniques that can help you live a long and healthy life. Talk to someone or make an appointment: 206-215-4545.
