Cardiology

Cardiovascular disease (typically referred to as “cardiology”) focuses on prevention, diagnosis, and management of disorders of the cardiovascular system. Cardiologists have completed a minimum of three years of subspecialty training (often called a “fellowship”) after their four years of medical school and three years of internal medicine training.  Management of risk factors for cardiovascular disease prevention, and early diagnosis and intervention for established disease are important elements of cardiology.

MCH Cardiologists diagnose and treat diseases of the Cardiovascular system and symptoms believed to be related to them.

Your primary care physician may refer you to one of our cardiologists  or  you may call the Cardiologist’s office to see if a cardiology consultation is appropriate.

Some cardiologists choose to focus their practice further in specific areas of cardiovascular disease.    Interventional Cardiology represents advanced training in cardiovascular disease and focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease with invasive methods (usually catheter-based).
