Your heart is said to be the hardest working muscle in the body. Beating more than 100,000 times a day, it never takes a rest from its job of pumping blood to every cell in the body. Keeping your heart healthy is key to a long and active life. Most people have at least one risk factor for heart disease:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Family history of heart disease
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • A sedentary lifestyle

Healthcare professionals often recommend testing to obtain a comprehensive picture of how a patient’s heart is functioning. Our Board-certified cardiologist can perform noninvasive or invasive procedures. Some, including echocardiography, exercise stress testing, carotid ultrasound, and ankle-brachial index (ABI) testing can be performed right in the office.
