Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine

 Patient subjected to preventive cardiovascular medicine

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Heart Association, cardiovascular  disease remains the leading cause of death in U.S. for both men and women. The number of deaths per year from cardiovascular disease based on the statistics from CDC and the American Heart Association respectively are 630,000 , about 1 in every 4 and 836,546, about 1 in every 3.  Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives each year than all forms of cancer and Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease combined. But many types of heart disease are preventable by minimizing risk factors and being aware of signs and symptoms. Risk factors for coronary artery disease can be reduced by making healthy lifestyle changes and in some cases medication therapy.

Using the latest technologies, we offer personalized cardiovascular risk assessment and effective approaches for the management of risk factors to our patients. Our objective is to impede or halt disease progression by evaluating and managing risk factors and metabolic syndrome such as:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

  • Abnormal lipids (high cholesterol and/or triglycerides) and abdominal fat

  • High blood sugar (glucose) levels

  • Insulin resistance and diabetes

  • Unhealthy diet

  • Low physical activity

  • Obesity

  • Smoking

  • Excessive alcohol consumption

  • Stress

  • Insufficient sleep

  • Hormonal Imbalance

  • Genetic factors

Our advanced comprehensive testing and risk assessment in addition to blood pressure, lipids and glucose level monitoring includes relevant atherosclerosis and cardiac imaging tests and if necessary interpretation of and referrals for cardiovascular genetic testing.

After evaluating your risk factors, we develop a plan that is tailored specifically for you. It includes lifestyle recommendations, medication therapy as needed, education, counseling and in some cases referrals to cardiovascular rehabilitation programs. ​
