Cardiovascular disease is also often referred to as heart disease. This label includes several issues primarily related to the buildup of plaque in the walls of the arteries, a condition called atherosclerosis.
👉 Heart Attack
A heart attack occurs when a blood clot cuts off blood flow to the heart. While many people survive a heart attack with emergency medical treatment, the condition requires ongoing medical attention.
Much like a heart attack, a stroke occurs when a blood vessel to the brain becomes blocked.
👉 Heart Failure
Heart failure is when the heart stops pumping blood effectively. In this case, the heart continues to work, but the body no longer receives an accurate level of blood and oxygen.

Heart disease covers a range of conditions. Therefore, the symptoms vary based on your specific condition. A few common symptoms indicate a problem with the heart or blood flow.

Once the condition is identified, we create a customized treatment plan to manage your specific symptoms.
