  • Assessment of overall cardiovascular risk

Patients are evaluated by a team consisting of physicians who specialize in preventive cardiology, a cardiovascular nurse, and a registered nutritionist. The team identifies traditional risk factors and assesses the need for non-invasive testing to determine the presence of coronary heart disease.

Treatment Focus

  • Reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease
  • Diagnosing and managing lipid disorders
  • For patients with established coronary heart disease, lowering their risk of future cardiovascular events

Patients with severe hypertension are also evaluated and treated, and are followed with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring devices.
