Heart disease remains a leading threat to the health of Americans. That’s why it’s so important to have leaders in heart care so close to home, 24/7, whenever you need it.
Is it heartburn or a heart attack? A fast answer to that question could save your life. If you feel chest pain, our emergency department provides prompt care. Special protocols, testing, and chest pain protocols help our cardiology team quickly diagnose whether you are experiencing a heart attack.
We provide a variety of treatments for irregular heartbeats, including implantation and management of pacemakers, Holter and event monitor services, and Afib ablation, a minimally invasive treatment option that relies on radio frequencies to correct atrial fibrillation.
Cardiac catheterization helps doctors evaluate how well the heart is functioning and whether there are blockages in the arteries. Since cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure, most patients feel better within hours and some can go home the same day.
Our diagnostic imaging services are extensive, allowing our cardiologists to look at every aspect to see a complete picture of your heart.
- 128-slice CT scanner
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Nuclear medicine scans
- Transesophageal echo
- Stress testing
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Holter and event monitoring
The sooner heart problems are treated the faster your recovery is for a healthier future. This 10-minute screening looks at your heart to help detect heart disease long before symptoms occur. Using a non-invasive CT scanner, doctors can see the tiniest plaque buildup that may be an indication of early heart disease.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
Many individuals are not aware of PAD, affects 1 in 20 Americans over the age of 50, or the disease’s link to heart attack and stroke. Characterized by arterial blockages in the legs, PAD symptoms are often mistaken as joint pain, poor circulation and a normal sign of aging.
We offer a painless, non-invasive annual ABI test to screen for PAD for individuals who are over the age of 70 or over the age of 50 and have a history of diabetes and/or smoking. For those under age of 50, an ABI test is recommended for those with the following risk factors:
- High cholesterol
- Achiness in the legs
- Painful cramping in the legs
- Burning sensation in the legs
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Personal or family history of heart or vascular disease
- Black or Hispanic ethnicity
