Knowledge is Power

We believe that patient education is one of the pillars of comprehensive healthcare, so we aim to provide you with thorough information about your cardiovascular condition. We are happy to answer any questions you have about your diagnosis and treatment directly, but we also understand that some patients find comfort in doing their own research. Below you will find links to fact sheets and videos with detailed information about some common cardiovascular conditions.

Diet & Exercise

When we consider our heart health, we often worry about the variables that are out of control, such as age and genetics. The truth is, there are many decisions that we make everyday that contribute to our risk factors. If you're concerned about the health of your heart, one of the best commitments you can make is to exercise and eat a healthy diet. Combined with exercising regularly, eating a Mediterranean diet that is rich in fish, nuts, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits can have a positive effect on your blood pressure, your cholesterol levels, and your risk of cardiac events such as heart attack and stroke.
