Our Services

New patients will be able to schedule a new appointment with few days of calling our office. Please let our receptionists know if you are having symptoms. They will not offer a medical advice but will try and schedule your appointment as early as possible.

EKGs (electrocardiography), echocardiography with the ability to perform 3D ultrasound imaging of the heart, vascular ultrasound studies, stress tests with perfusion scans (using nuclear gamma camera) and pacemaker and defibrillator checking are performed in our clinic. Other diagnostic tests, including Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), Tilt table test, Holter monitoring (extended EKG tracing for 24 - 48 hours), are done at Memorial Hospital at Gulfport.

Exercise, diet and weight reduction, and medications are the common approaches to managing the most prevalent heart conditions. However, further interventions, such as heart catheterization with coronary arteries stenting or device implantation (pacemaker, defibrillator and loop recorder) may be necessary in select cases.

Do I need to see a heart doctor?

Several heart conditions remain silent or cause minor symptoms until they lead to a major catastrophe such as a stroke or sudden death.

While we recommend early checkup in the presence of risk factors, the preferred time to seek health care depends on the specific risk factors and the presence of symptoms. Generally, healthcare can be sought too late, but never too early.
