Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, brought on by high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, an inactive lifestyle, or a family history of heart disease. When you visit Vanguard Medical Group, our board-certified cardiologist can help you with everything from prevention to diagnosis to treatment of heart disease. We can conduct a series of tests such as blood tests, cardiac stress tests, and more so you will never be in the dark about your health. Some conditions that we can help treat include:

Obesity can also cause symptoms associated with heart disease and those symptoms can be improved through weight loss efforts. That’s why we offer weight loss programs to our patients so they are never alone in their fight against heart disease.
Maintaining a healthy digestive system is essential to getting the energy you need to take on your day. At Vanguard Medical Group, we offer comprehensive evaluations and effective treatment options for a variety of digestive disorders. Some of those disorders include:

To stay on top of your digestive health, we also aim to encourage our patients to do regular colonoscopy visits. A colonoscopy exam can pick up underlying diseases that may not be obvious at the present, so it’s important to have them done frequently so you can be proactive about your health. Visit Dr. Peter Heit, M.D. to take control of your health.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes deterioration in your bones as you grow older. It’s hard to detect early signs of osteoporosis, usually only presenting itself once your wrists, spine, or hips endure a bone fracture. Some subtle early signs to look out for if you think you might have osteoporosis include loss of height or a stooped posture.
Regular screenings will help ensure early detection so we can start to develop a plan that will keep your bones happy and healthy. Osteoporosis can be treated through a variety of methods including medication, exercise, nutrition, smoking cessation, or limiting alcohol consumption.
At Vanguard Medical Group, we believe that physical and mental health go hand-in-hand. Mental health issues can stem from chronic health issues, just like chronic illnesses can stem from mental health problems.

- Other mental health disorders
