Our heart & cardiovascular system is considered one of the most vital organs in the body. Preventative Heart & Cardiovascular Health Care is imperative! Keeping your heart and cardiovascular system healthy helps maintain the well being of your entire body. Likewise, when other areas of your body are in distress, it can affect your cardiovascular health.


What is Preventative Heart & Cardiovascular Health Care?

We prioritize a comprehensive approach to cardiovascular health by assessing your individual risk factors and tailoring a care plan to modify and manage those risks effectively.Our commitment involves dedicating time to discuss your unique situation, ensuring a thorough understanding of potential risks and treatment options. Collaborating closely with your Primary Care Physician and other Specialists, we aim to create a multidisciplinary care plan focused on both prevention and intervention for optimal cardiovascular well-being.

Coronary Artery Disease

A cardiovascular condition where the coronary arteries, responsible for supplying blood to the heart muscle, become narrowed or blocked, often due to the buildup of plaque, potentially leading to chest pain or heart attacks.

Carotid Disease

Refers to the narrowing or blockage of the carotid arteries, crucial vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain, commonly caused by a buildup of plaque and posing a risk of stroke if left untreated.

Heart Attack

Also called a myocardial infarction, occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart muscle is blocked, typically due to the sudden formation of a blood clot in a coronary artery, leading to damage or death of the heart tissue and potentially life-threatening consequences.


A medical emergency that occurs when there is a disruption of blood flow to the brain, either due to a blockage (ischemic stroke) or bleeding (hemorrhagic stroke), leading to damage of brain cells and potential neurological impairments.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

PVD is a condition characterized by the narrowing or obstruction of blood vessels outside the heart and brain, often affecting the arteries that supply blood to the legs and arms, resulting in reduced blood flow and potential complications such as pain, ulcers, or tissue damage.

Heart Rhythm Problems
(Palpitations, Arrythmias)

Involve irregularities in the electrical impulses that regulate the heartbeat, potentially causing the heart to beat too fast, too slow, or irregularly, with symptoms ranging from mild palpitations to serious conditions that may require medical intervention.

Venous Dysfunction

Characterized by impaired function of the veins, often leading to issues such as venous insufficiency or varicose veins, where blood flow is compromised, resulting in symptoms like swelling, pain, and skin changes

There are multiple risk factors that may contribute to a patient’s Preventative Heart & Cardiovascular Health Care Plan

We will outline a few of the key factors:

  • Family History: Genetics plays a crucial role.
  • Obesity: Body weight and a large waist circumference are significant factors.
  • Cholesterol: Elevated levels (High Triglycerides and Low HDL) increase the risk of plaque formation, "fatty deposits," diabetes, and heart disease.
  • Diabetes: Untreated diabetes is a major contributor to heart disease.
  • Kidney Disorder: May be linked to or lead to heart disease.
  • High Blood Pressure: Prolonged high blood pressure can damage the heart, leading to heart disease, stroke, or kidney disorders.
  • Stress: Affects behaviors influencing heart disease risks, such as high blood pressure, smoking, physical activity, and overeating.
  • Smoking: A known risk factor for heart disease.

Prevention Matters to Our Patients.

A 41 year old non-smoker, in healthy weight and with family history of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), came to Ocean Heart Group because he was suffering from anxiety and panic attacks. He had been feeling unusually “tired” for several weeks and had been experiencing “irregular” heart beats prior to his appointment. After the completion of a comprehensive examination, and all necessary in-office testing, our patient’s personalized Preventative Care Plan involved the management of his heart rhythms and continued monitoring and implementation of prevention medicine for his risk factors for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).A 62-year old with a family history of stroke expressed her serious concerns about her risk for having a stroke. She is a healthy weight non-smoker with a history of high blood pressure and borderline high cholesterol. Upon completion of an in-office Carotid Sonogram (measures the amount of plaque within the artery walls), we diagnosed findings of “mild plaque” located on the walls of her Carotid Artery. Her individualized Preventative Care plan included a a low cholesterol diet and medical therapy in an effort to eliminate her risk of stroke.
