Who we are

Coast Heart Institute (CHI) is vanguard cardiology clinic on the Mississippi gulf coast. Our mission is to provide the highest standards of health care to our patients by carefully evaluating each patient's condition through attentive listening, thorough examination, delivery of evidence-based, cutting-edge diagnostic and therapeutic options, in a compassionate, patient-centered environment.

In 2015, CHI became a Memorial clinic. This has enabled us to hand over regulatory and financial matters to Memorial Hospital and focus even more on patient care and quality of service

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.
