Cardiology

Cardiology refers to the diagnoses, care and study of cardiovascular illnesses,injuries and everything related to the heart.

Heart attacks and heart disease are the number one killer in the United States. Due to the serious nature, medical facilities need to have the capability to diagnose these life-threatening conditions and provide prompt medical care. Necessary cardiac services provided include:

  • Counseling on lifestyle changes and ways to incorporate a healthy diet and exercise regime is always recommended to help ward off heart disease, however taking these steps does not guarantee that the symptoms of this condition will cease.
  • Angleton ER is ready and able to manage any complications that may arise as the result of heart disease.
  • Angleton ER has direct access and policies for interventional procedures such as transferring directly to a CATH lab for diagnoses and treatment of a heart attack

Cardiology is not only about diagnosing and treating heart conditions and injuries, it also involves finding the root cause and arranging further care and management. Our doctors are trained to be aware of all medical conditions that pose a risk of damaging the heart, like diabetes, high cholesterol levels, and high blood pressure.
