Treatment and Followup
A full range of treatment options for those diagnosed with heart disease will also be offered.
If a patient is determined to have a low risk of heart disease, we will recommend a diet and exercise routine along with follow up to a Primary Care provider.
If a patient is determined to be at a higher risk of heart disease, we will recommend one or all of the following with a referral to a cardiologist:
- Ankle brachial index (ABI) – Screening for circulation abnormalities in the lower extremities
- Echocardiogram – Test to evaluate the structural aspects of the heart
- Electrocardiogram (EKG) – Test to evaluate the electrical conduction of the heart
- Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) – Blood test to determine diabetes risk
- Microalbuminuria – Urine test to screen for early kidney disease
