Preventative and General Cardiology
Preventing heart disease is possible if patients’ symptoms and risk factors are recognized early. Our expert preventive cardiologist provides you with the essential tools for living a heart-healthy life. Many patients understand the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Still, they are unsure of what changes to make to improve their well-being. Our goal is to develop an in-depth understanding of your needs, allowing our providers to create a personalized treatment plan. Your care is always based on the latest cardiac care advancements and medical evidence.
At Yuma Regional Medical Center, our cardiology team provides complete heart health services. These services often include a comprehensive assessment of all cardiovascular risk factors, in addition to evaluation and management of conditions such as high cholesterol, obesity and coronary artery disease. Our evaluation and treatment procedures are designed to slow or stop the progression of heart disease.
Our cardiologist chooses from a broad range of non-invasive cardiac testing to check for disease, damage or abnormalities in the heart. These essential tests help us determine if a heart attack occurred and how much your heart was damaged. We also measure the degree of coronary artery disease (CAD) you may have and recommend treatments or lifestyle changes.
