Cardiology is the branch of internal medicine that involves the study, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the heart and circulatory system. Certified cardiologists treat heart disease, atherosclerosis, and atrial fibrillation, among other conditions.

According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S. Nearly 700,000 people die from this disease each year. Trained cardiologists are essential to promoting heart health and saving lives.

Patients are often seen by a cardiologist if they experience chest pains, high blood pressure, high total cholesterol, or shortness of breath. Your cardiologist helps prevent heart disease through screenings and regular checkups. If you or your Primary Care Provider are concerned about your cardiovascular health, visit one of TPMG’s highly skilled Cardiologists to guide you.
