Cardiology Q & A

What is cardiology?

Cardiology is the study of the heart and a branch of the medical field that focuses primarily on preventing, diagnosing, and treating heart-related conditions. Because heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, it is ideal when your family medicine provider has extensive understanding and experience in cardiology. 

At Seby Medical Center, Dr. Vyas and Dr. Joseph oversee your comprehensive, optimal health while screening, evaluating, and managing cardiovascular issues, such as:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High cholesterol (hyperlipidemia) 
  • Irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) 
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF)
  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Peripheral vascular disease (PVD)
  • Congenital heart disease 

When it comes to achieving wellness, attention to your heart health is essential. Whether you are at high risk for heart disease or have a family or personal history of heart problems, quality cardiology care can help protect your health in the long term. 

Who needs preventive cardiology care? 

Everyone can benefit from cardiology screening and preventive care. At Seby Medical Center, every patient receives regular screening for conditions that could affect their cardiovascular health, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and vascular disease. 

Your providers may recommend more in-depth diagnostic screening and regular cardiology-specific assessments if you have:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Chest pain
  • A family history of heart disease
  • A personal history of stroke, blood clots, or heart attack

If you are a smoker, use alcohol excessively, or use drugs recreationally, you’re at significantly higher risk for heart-related conditions and should have regular cardiology evaluations.
