Women's Heart Disease

Heart disease has long been thought of as a man's disease. Women have not been viewed as being at risk, yet statistics show that nearly 500,000 women die from heart disease every year. It is the number one killer of women in America today. It is also the leading cause of disability among women.

Women have many unique characteristics of this disease process from their heart's makeup and signs and symptoms to diagnosis. When 40 percent of all coronary events in women are fatal and 63 percent of all sudden deaths in women occur in those without a prior history of coronary artery disease, early detection, education and prevention are needed to address this "silent epidemic" in women.

Our team of cardiologists, cardiac nurses and other heart health professionals  are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality of care.
