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:
- Family history of heart disease
- 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.
