When to See Your Cardiologist
Early diagnosis and treatment are the best way to promote long-term cardiac health. Many patients see our cardiologist for certain symptoms or conditions that might indicate heart trouble. If you notice any of the following signs or symptoms, consult with your doctor right away:
- Shortness of breath
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Chest pain/pressure
- High blood pressure
- Changes in heart rate or rhythm
- Leg pain, swelling, and fatigue
Patients should consider regular preventative cardiac checkups. High blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, an inactive lifestyle, or a family history of heart disease can put you at higher risk for heart problems. By visiting a cardiologist at Vanguard Medical Group, you can discuss your chances of developing a heart condition and learn how to keep your heart healthy by watching for symptoms and practicing a healthy lifestyle.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
The first thing your cardiologist will do is evaluate your symptoms and assess your heart and circulatory function, as well as check your medical history and lifestyle choices for any potential risk factors. After the preliminary assessment, your cardiologist will recommend tests for a more specific diagnosis, if necessary. Tests may include:
- Blood tests
- Cardiac stress tests
- Computed tomography (CT) scans
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
After making an accurate diagnosis, your cardiologist will prescribe the best treatment plan to target and manage your condition.
