Whether you’re seeking a heart screening or are experiencing signs of cardiac conditions such as congestive heart failure, heart blockage symptoms or heart attack, the Doctors Hospital cardiology team is here for you—and your heart.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Heart disease includes conditions affecting the heart, such as:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart attack
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Congenital heart disease

Regular screenings can help you identify cardiac issues before they become serious heart problems.

Are you at risk for heart disease?

Early warning signals for heart disease, including mild heart attack symptoms, signs of congestive heart failure and heart blockage symptoms, can be difficult for individuals to detect. If you have two or more of the following factors, you could be at risk.

  • Women 55 and older or who are postmenopausal
  • Men 45 or older
  • Family history of heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure, or hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • History of tobacco use
  • Sedentary lifestyle

  • Control high cholesterol.
  • Control high blood pressure.
  • Get plenty of exercise.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
