Cardiology at CHI Franciscan
If you or a loved one has a heart condition, you don’t need to travel far to find excellent care. Our board-certified specialists include some of the region’s most exceptional cardiologists, delivering advanced, compassionate heart care from diagnosis through recovery.
Cardiology: The center of heart care
A cardiologist specializes in treating conditions and diseases of the heart, which may exist long before symptoms are present. A cardiologist can help you determine your risk for heart disease, suggest ways to reduce your risk and develop treatment plans for conditions like coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, heart valve disease, angina (chest pain) and heart failure.
Symptoms of heart disease
Often the first symptom of heart disease is a heart attack. The signs of a heart attack may differ for men and women but may include:
- Chest pain or discomfort that doesn’t go away after a few minutes
- Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck or back
- Weakness, light-headedness, nausea, or a cold sweat
- Pain or discomfort in the arms or shoulder
- Shortness of breath
If you have a family history of heart disease or unexplained symptoms, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with one of our physicians.
Conditions we treat
We treat the full range of heart conditions, from high cholesterol to complex heart rhythm issues, including:
The narrowing of the arteries supplying blood and oxygen to the heart muscle, usually caused by atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
Our cardiologists have years of experience in general cardiology and preventive care. Many have further training in heart failure, heart rhythm disorders, treating heart attack and minimally invasive surgical procedures to repair structural problems. Whether you need routine heart management and monitoring or a highly specialized procedure or surgery, our team will deliver the personalized care you deserve.
