We offer in-office, same-day, and hospital services, including, but not limited to: Cardiovascular Risk Assessment and Disease Prevention. Our heart specialists diagnose and treat a range of conditions; some of the most common include:

Coronary Artery Disease

The most common type of heart disease, coronary artery disease occurs when a waxy substance (plaque) builds up and hardens in the arteries that supply blood to the heart; this buildup is called atherosclerosis, and it makes it difficult for blood to flow through the arteries.

Atrial Fibrillation

An irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that is often rapid and can lead to poor blood flow, atrial fibrillation occurs when the upper two chambers of the heart called the atria receive abnormal electrical signals.

Peripheral Artery Disease

Also called peripheral vascular disease, PAD is a circulatory condition that causes narrowing of the blood vessels that carry blood to the limbs; it often causes pain in the extremities.

Venous Insufficency

Also called venous reflux, this condition is characterized by inadequate blood flow through the veins, which causes blood to pool in the legs; venous insufficiency is most often caused by blood clots or varicose veins.
