Put a Little Love in Your Heart.
Knowing what to do to keep our hearts in shape is often a daunting challenge. Most people are aware that “diet and exercise” are keys to preventing and reversing heart disease, but they don’t know where to turn for help to achieve their health goals.
Our Healthy Heart program is clinically proven to lower your risk factors, reverse heart disease and improve your vitality. Our program will help you to improve cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation and lose weight.
Your program will include doctor’s evaluation, specialty lab testing and a customized treatment plan that will include working with a nutritionist. Our physicians will manage your medications and may reduce or discontinue prescriptions as your health and lab work improves. When necessary, we will also refer to a cardiologist if further workup is needed.
