The Heart Center provides outpatient services in cardiovascular disease. We offer clinical and non invasive diagnostic techniques for evaluation and management of cardiovascular problems. Because of the ever increasing incidence of serious side effects of pharmaceutical drugs including cholesterol drugs (statins), we at The Heart Center combine state-of-the-art contemporary medicine and science-based alternative natural resources.
Cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer in the United States. We place major emphasis on prevention, early diagnosis and optimum non invasive medical management of cardiovascular problems.
