At Amelia Heart and Vascular Center, our cardiologists are dedicated to helping patients understand their current condition. Dr. Moalemi and Dr. Tebyanian both try to involve their patients as much as possible in their treatment plans. A patient’s vital signs are taken including weight, height, respiration, blood pressure , and pulse. Symptoms and medical history are thoroughly evaluated and additional tests may be recommended to help the doctor form a more complete diagnosis. Dr. Moalemi or Dr. Tebyanian will discuss the status of the condition with the patient and will treat the condition through the use of medication or other available treatments. Each doctor reviews the risks of heart disease with their patients and the steps that can be taken to minimize those risks. They consider an involved discussion with their patient necessary in helping to form an effective and efficient treatment plan.
