Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in men and woman. Our practice policy is to make sure patients are aware and fully understanding their cardiovascular health status. Detecting early cardiovascular disease, give my patients the option of different treatment modalities. Involving patient's in their cardiovascular care and decision making. Patient's appreciation and satisfaction is the most rewarding.
