Cardiology

For both routine and emergency cardiac care, our heart specialists at CitiMed are here to help. Our cardiologists are board-certified experts who have gone through extensive medical training and bring ample experience to the table. Their skills, coupled with the state-of-the-art medical devices that we use daily, enable us to detect and treat heart problems more effectively than ever before. Whether the patient is seeking a routine test for heart disease or complaining of chest pains or other warning signs, the cardiology team at CitiMed will provide compassionate and comprehensive medical care.

While cardiac issues are often referred to using the blanket term of “heart disease,” the truth is that there are many different conditions and problems that fall into this category. At CitiMed, our cardiologists have extensive experienced in diagnosing and treating many conditions. Symptoms of cardiac issues can vary depending on the problem at hand. For instance, patients with cardiovascular problems are likely to experience chest pains, shortness of breath, and pain or numbness in the legs, arms, or neck. A patient with heart arrhythmia, meanwhile, is likely to experience a “fluttering” sensation in their chest, a heartbeat that feels like it is racing (tachycardia) or slow and sluggish (bradycardia), dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, or fainting. In general, the three most common and telling symptoms of a cardiac problem are chest pains, shortness of breath, and fainting. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately.

At CitiMed, our cardiac specialists work closely with each patient to understand their symptoms, conduct the appropriate diagnostic tests and screenings, determine an accurate diagnosis, and put together a comprehensive treatment plan. Whether you have been dealing with symptoms commonly linked to heart disease or have a high heart disease risk level (due to factors such as age, gender, family history, or lifestyle factors), you might be due for a heart screening.
