At Corrielus Cardiology, in-depth cardiology consultations allow you to gain insight into your personal risk factors for heart disease. During the consultation, Dr. Corrielus will address your heart health concerns as part of our overall healthcare strategy for you.
Risk factors for heart disease may include factors like current heart function, family history, and lifestyle choices. This evaluation can help with early diagnosis, which allows for early intervention and treatment. In such instances, concerns can often be managed with conservative approaches, improving your long-term heart health.
At Corrielus Cardiology, we take a comprehensive approach to your cardiac consultation, ensuring no detail is overlooked. During your consultation, we conduct a thorough physical examination to assess your overall health and your risk of heart disease.
We review your medical history and any medications you're currently taking. Additionally, your lifestyle habits, dietary choices, and daily routines are discussed since they can significantly impact your risk of heart disease.
Our wellness center also offers a range of noninvasive cardiac testing options. You may also be recommended other diagnostic tests to get a comprehensive understanding of your heart's current condition and functionality.
Recommended tests may include:
- Doppler ultrasound
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Noninvasive stress test
- Heart rhythm assessments
- Blood flow rate evaluations
- Lipid level checks
- Blood glucose measurements
- Blood pressure readings
These tests evaluate the blood flow to and from your heart and your heart's electrical activity, helping us assess your risk of future heart complications.
Cardiology consultations are particularly beneficial for patients who may not have known heart issues but possess risk factors, often due to family history. In these cases, cardiac evaluations play a vital role in the early detection of conditions that could potentially lead to heart problems in the future.
Many cardiovascular diseases are preventable. During a cardiac consultation, tests that assess heart function and heart health serve as a proactive measure, allowing for the ongoing monitoring of your heart's condition.
Ideally, every adult should consider periodic cardiology consultations, regardless of their current health status. This proactive approach is rooted in the fact that heart conditions may not always present obvious symptoms in their early stages.
At Corrielus Cardiology, we firmly believe in the power of prevention. Dr. Sanul Corrielus and our team work collaboratively with each patient to develop a tailored treatment and lifestyle plan to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Your heart health is our shared priority, and our consultations are a crucial step in ensuring your well-being.
