Preventive Cardiology


The healthcare professionals at
Cardiology Associates of Palm Beach believe that much cardiovascular
disease is preventable.


Recurrent problems can be prevented in patients who are already known to have cardiovascular problems.

Considerable research has documented that a healthy diet and lifestyle, sometimes in combination with prescribed medication, will prevent most cardiovascular events, including heart attacks and strokes.

A careful personal and family medical history and physical examination, when combined with appropriate blood tests and, in selected individuals, stress testing or other diagnostic tests such as vascular ultrasound or cardiovascular CT scanning, will identify individuals who require interventions to prevent future problems. The practice is dedicated to personally assessing the risk profile of each patient to make individualized recommendations. We have invested in the latest and most sophisticated technologies for this purpose, and use them in a cost-efficient manner.

In making recommendations to our patients we are knowledgeable of and guided by national recommendations made by the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology.

The American Heart Association has excellent patient education materials, including important information about Cholesterol.
