Cano Health’s elite staff of Board Certified Cardiovascular specialists, Internal Medicine physicians, and Family Practice physicians work as a team, consulting and cooperating to provide patients with thorough, in-depth quality care. By maintaining all of our patient's medical history in a single platform available to each physician, we can see to it that all aspects of patient care are effectively optimized. Because we have our own on-site testing facilities, we can schedule diagnostic studies around the clock, and test results are reported promptly to cardiologists and physicians for use in evaluating patient healthcare needs.
Cardiovascular issues may be caused by narrowed or obstructed blood vessels that prevent your various parts of your body receiving enough blood. Symptoms may be different for men and women. For instance, men are more likely to have chest pain; women are more likely to have symptoms such as shortness of breath, nausea and extreme fatigue.
Come to Cano Health’s Cardiovascular Specialists if you have been experiencing these symptoms:
Heart disease is easier to administer care to when detected early.
If you think you may have heart disease, based on new signs or symptoms you're having, make an appointment to see your doctor.
(Please dial 911 or go to an emergency room if you believe your symptoms may be caused by a heart attack or any other urgent heart related diagnosis)
We recognize that every patient is different, so at Cano Health we want to make sure that our treatment options reflect the uniqueness of the patient. General cardiovascular treatment as prescribed by Cano Health Cardiovascular specialists may include one or more of the following:
These include reducing your diet to a low-fat and low-sodium diet, getting at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most days of the week, quitting smoking, and limiting alcohol intake.
Should lifestyle changes not be enough, your doctor may prescribe medications to control your heart disease. The type of medication will depend on the type of heart disease.
If medications aren't enough, it's possible your doctor will recommend specific procedures or surgery. The type of procedure will depend on the type of heart disease and the extent of the damage to your heart.
