Are you looking for a Cardiologist?
Cardiologists are physicians who are specially trained to prevent, diagnose and treat conditions related to the heart. They are experts in the heart muscle as well as the arteries and veins that carry blood to and from the heart. Cardiologists often treat chest pain, high blood pressure and heart failure as well as problems with your heart valves and blood vessels. Some of the most common diseases people seek out cardiologists for are congenital heart disease, ventricular fibrillation, pericarditis and high cholesterol. In order to diagnose these conditions, these doctors use a variety of tests including x-rays, MRI, electrocardiogram and cardiac catheterization. Heart health is extremely important and visiting a cardiologist is the first step in ensuring your heart is functioning properly.
