When it comes to caring for your heart as well as your overall wellness, we place a strong emphasis on preventive cardiology. By providing comprehensive cardiac screenings and preventive evaluations, we can save patients from serious heart complications and even death. This begins with a crucial assessment of a patient’s risk for heart disease. Many of the risk factors associated with heart disease are controllable and treatable, including dietary habits, stress management, exercise and smoking/tobacco habits. A preventive cardiac evaluation can provide invaluable information about how your lifestyle is contributing to your heart health.
For many patients, the results of a heart-health screening can be a major wake up call. Elevated cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and excess bodyweight can prompt patients to make better lifestyle choices to reduce their risk for heart disease. At Corrielus Cardiology, we provide thorough cardiovascular risk evaluations and management to help prevent heart disease in the Philadelphia community.
Preventing heart disease is absolutely possible if patients are educated on their risk factors early and are able to recognize heart disease symptoms. Dr. Sanul Corrielus is a leading non-invasive cardiologist and renowned wellness advocate who values an integrated approach to patient care. Your preventive cardiac screening and evaluation can include the following:
- Comprehensive assessment of all cardiovascular risk factors
- Non-invasive cardiac testing
- A customized nutrition plan
- Counseling and education to foster a healthy lifestyle
A preventive evaluation answers the question, “am I at risk for heart disease?” Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Fortunately, many types of heart disease are preventable and can be treated with conservative measures when detected early. Therefore, preventive screenings and patient education are paramount when it comes to fighting the dismal statistics of heart disease.
