The heart valve clinic is open to those who have been diagnosed with a heart valve problem, or believe they may have symptoms of heart valve disease and would like to be evaluated. It's also available to those seeking a second opinion.
Patients will be assigned a personally dedicated heart valve coordinator who will assemble the data and navigate patients through the entire process: from the first consultation through treatment implementation and short- and long-term follow-up.
It is important to diagnose and treat heart valve disease early before time runs out and you are left with symptoms for the rest of your life. Not every patient needs medications or surgery, and it may be as simple as taking an aspirin a day, education and close follow-up. With this state-of-the-art clinic, we can provide you with the best quality care here at home and guide you to a healthier life.
