We specialize in finding, treating and preventing all conditions and diseases that affect the heart.
Cardiology is the study of the heart brought on by its Latin root words “cardio” meaning heart, and “ology” meaning to study. Today cardiologists work with patients on their current heart health and devise ways of improving it. Regular exercise, prescriptions, and dietary methods are all considered when treating a patient with cardiovascular challenges. Standard tests Cardiologists will administer to patients include,
- Echocardiogram – a soundwave picture to look at the structure and function of the heart.
- Ambulatory ECG – is a recording of heart health activity to look for abnormal heart rhythms, over a specified period.
- Exercise test – commonly referred to as “stress test” a study to measure your heart’s performance and limitations
Cardiologists diagnose, treat, and manage many types of heart and blood vessel conditions, including:
- Coronary artery disease, also known as heart disease, which occurs when the blood vessels that bring nutrients to your heart are blocked
- Heart attack, which happens when blood flow to your heart is blocked
- Heart failure, which occurs when your heart can’t pump effectively
- Heart rhythm problems, also called arrhythmias, which happens when your heart beats too fast, too slow, or in an irregular way
- Valve problems, which occur when your heart valves don’t open or close properly
- Cardiologists can also help you prevent heart disease through risk assessments, which look at your family history, medical history, and lifestyle.

We treat issues related to the bones, muscles, and tendons of the foot and ankle.
Podiatry is a medical field devoted solely to injuries and illnesses involved with the foot or ankle. Podiatrists are highly specialized and trained physicians.
They can prescribe medications, set fractures, perform surgery, and utilize lab and imaging tests for diagnostic purposes. Podiatrists provide individual consultations to patients concerning the continued treatment of disorders and preventive foot care. Many podiatrists further specialize in areas such as sports medicine, community health, research, and more.
When it comes to the training and education podiatrists receive, podiatric physicians are the only doctors to receive specialized medical and surgical training. Podiatric physicians are also board certificated in the care of the lower extremity.

We prevent, diagnose, manage and treat all allergic diseases, asthma, and immunological diseases in patients of all ages.
An allergist is a physician specially trained to diagnose, treat, and manage allergies, asthma, and immunologic disorders, including primary immunodeficiency disorders. These conditions range from the very common to the very rare, spanning all ages and encompassing various organ systems.
In the United States, becoming an allergist/immunologist requires at least an additional nine years of training beyond a bachelor’s degree.
After completing medical school and graduating with a medical degree, physicians undergo three years of training in internal medicine or pediatrics and pass the exam of either the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) or the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP).
Allergists (Immunologists) knowledge applies to multiple different fields of medicine and research. For example, there are applications in autoimmune diseases, and disorders as well as the lymphatic system’s health. Common organs associated with the lymphatic system are the thymus gland, bone marrow, and spleen.
Allergists identify allergins that are interacting adversely with a patients immune system and other associated organs/bodily functions. One of the most well known immune diseases is HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus).
We diagnose and treat congenital and structural conditions with the use of a catheter, stents or by implanting new heart valves without surgery.
At Heart and Health Medical, we use Interventional Cardiology to help diagnose and treat many congenital and structural conditions as well as vascular problems within the heart. Cardiac Catheterization is a common treatment used by heart specialists for people suffering from various heart conditions. During this process a catheter, a thin long tube, is inserted through a blood vessel in the arm, groin or neck and passed into the heart. This method gives your heart specialist the ability to perform diagnostic testing such as collecting blood samples, measure blood pressure in the chambers, assess the flow across heart valves, and look for the presence of blockages in the Coronary Arteries.
Our weight loss specialists customize plans to combat aging and weight gain.
Anti-Aging refers to the attempt of slowing down or reversing the aging process.

It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan of humans. Anti-aging medicine is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those applied in other preventive health specialties.

We provide bioidentical hormone therapy for Women and Men.
Menopause is when a woman’s menstruation cycle stops and her body changes to prevent her from getting pregnant. At this point, the ovaries stop producing eggs, and the levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Menopause is different in every woman, and not every woman will experience the same symptoms. Some women will not be affected by the symptoms, whereas others will be affected so severely that they need help from a specialist. Although there are quite a few treatments to help in the relief of menopausal symptoms, there have been many women seeking a more natural approach. The interest in a more natural approach to hormone therapy has focused attention on bioidentical hormones — hormones that are identical to the hormones women’s bodies already make. They’re not found in this form in nature but are made from a plant chemical extracted found in yams and soy. Bioidentical estrogens are 17 beta-estradiol, estrone, and estriol. Bioidentical progesterone is simply progesterone.
