Preventive Cardiology & Wellness

Preventing heart disease or restoring your health after a heart attack, stroke, or vascular event is the goal of our prevention and wellness clinic. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Certain risk factors such as family history, age, or sex cannot be changed, but there are many other ways you can reduce your risk of heart disease. Our cardiac wellness program supports you as you make lifestyle changes that reduce your risk and increase your health, fitness, and quality of life.

The preventive cardiology team at Amelia Heart & Vascular Center works with you to utilize a combination of lifestyle and medical strategies focused on reducing your risk factors for cardiovascular disease while improving your health and well-being. Our preventive cardiology wellness program is designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of people, including diabetics, those who have a family history of heart or vascular disease, and individuals with high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Personalized Care for Heart Disease

Developing healthy eating habits is one of the best ways to combat heart disease. Managing your risk factors and controlling your cholesterol levels requires long-term effort. We are here to help you, whether you need to manage complex cholesterol disorders or make basic lifestyle improvements.

Our team includes specialists from many areas to offer nutritional services, prescriptive exercise programs, stress testing, cardiovascular disease risk-reduction programs and a peripheral vascular rehabilitation program. These programs help patients make lifestyle changes and determine the best medical treatment plan to:

  • Manage existing cardiovascular disease and reducing the progression of the disease
  • Reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke or developing cardiovascular disease
  • Reduce the need for surgery
  • Improve your quality of life by reducing symptoms
  • Manage to treat blood pressure or cholesterol
  • Assist with tobacco cessation
  • Help manage anxiety, depression, or other behavioral health conditions
  • Provide specialized treatment for those with diabetes, pre-diabetes, and insulin resistance, who are overweight and have heart disease

Our preventive cardiology clinic is a bridge between the care your family doctor provides and the advanced services of a cardiologist.
