Lenox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute provides a broad range of cardiology services from diagnostic testing to heart disease management. At Lenox Hill Heart and Vascular, you are not simply seeing a cardiologist; you're seeing a team of highly trained specialists. Your cardiologist is your front line of heart disease defense. Clinical cardiologists provide a full range of non-invasive testing including electrocardiographs (ECGs), stress tests, and cholesterol and blood pressure evaluations. In addition, they provide guidance about prevention strategies and prescribe medications to help you manage your condition. Your cardiologist will refer you to a specialist if you need a procedure, such as heart surgery or electrophysiology testing. You will most likely see a cardiologist first if you have heart disease or have experienced a heart event, such as a heart attack or heart palpitations.
With a rich history in treating heart disease, Lenox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute leads the way in cardiovascular care. Lenox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute offers a comprehensive, integrated approach to heart disease treatment. When appropriate, our cardiologists take a conservative approach that focuses on lifestyle changes and medication. If medication and preventive measures do not work, we then may recommend more invasive therapies. When a more invasive treatment is required, your clinical cardiologist will act as your primary heart doctor. Your cardiologist will help determine the appropriate level of care based on your individual needs. He or she can recommend more invasive tests or treatments, refer you to the right specialist, and guide you through the process. Lenox Hill can coordinate your cardiovascular needs with hospital staff and highly trained outpatient cardiologists and specialists.
To help you manage your heart disease, our cardiologists offer consultation and long-term care. As part of our cardiology team, you also have access to an experienced team of nurses and educators. Our teams can work with you to manage your disease and develop long-term preventive care programs, such as weight loss and smoking cessation.
