Preventive Cardiology

Sports Cariology Icon
We provide individualized, evidence-based care aimed at lowering people’s risk for cardiovascular disease and its complications. Even if you don’t have any risk factors right now, you could benefit from a preventive cardiology program. We will help you learn how to keep your risks low as you get older and help you manage any changes in your health status.

Personalized Care to Reduce Heart Disease Risk.

We evaluate each patient’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease – or risk of suffering a cardiovascular event, such as a heart attack or stroke – and examine hereditary factors and other conditions that can affect patients’ future health.

This is followed by the development of patient-specific medical plans to aggressively reduce the risk factors for each individual.

Who Should Have a Preventive Cardiology Evaluation?

Preventive cardiology is designed to support people at all stages of life. Anyone can benefit from joining a preventive cardiology program. It is especially helpfully if you:

  • Want to lower your risk of developing heart disease.
  • Have a strong family history of heart attack, stroke, or peripheral artery disease.
  • Have a personal history of cardiovascular disease, especially in people younger than 60.
  • Have difficult-to-control risk factors for atherosclerosis, particularly significant cholesterol disorders.
  • Have controllable risk factors, such as:
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar or diabetes
  • Obesity, especially with excess abdominal fat
  • Smoking
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Lack of exercise/sedentary lifestyle
  • Have uncontrollable risk factors, such as:
  • Gender: Men are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease than women
  • Age: Older people, including postmenopausal women, are more likely to have heart disease.
  • Race and ethnicity: Heart disease is more prevalent among African-Americans than among Caucasians.
  • Family history of cardiovascular disease
