Trust your heart to physicians who have both expertise and compassion
The care of the heart and vascular system has advanced tremendously in the past 20 years. We know so much more about ways to prevent and reverse cardiac artery disease (CAD), how to test and diagnose arterial disorders, atrial fibrillation (AFib), valve disease and offer medication, minimally invasive procedures and lifestyle treatment plans that can improve the quality of life for those with heart disease. The cardiology division at Northern Medical Group has the high level of training, experience and diagnostic tools to treat the most common forms of heart and vascular disease and help you with lifestyle modification to help you lead a good life despite a heart disease diagnosis.
Make no mistake, heart disease is serious
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Other statistics demonstrate the need for cardiac care:
- About 655,000 Americans die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.
- Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the most common form of heart disease
- About 18.2 million adults age 20 and older have CAD (about 6.7%)
Monitor your risk factors for heart disease
Red flags for possible heart disorders include a family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, history of smoking, obesity, and excessive alcohol abuse. In addition those with diabetes, or who have an unhealthy diet or who do not exercise enough or at all, may be vulnerable. If someone has a heart attack or stroke younger than 55 for men or younger than 65 for women, their family members should consider seeing the cardiologist team at Northern Medical Group. Our doctors can assess your risk of heart disease, discuss your need for treatment, medication or more and then provide a plan for regular screening and risk reduction.You’ll find highly experienced, fellowship trained experienced cardiologists who can provide clinical expertise and a plan of action within easy reach of home.
