While those words may sound intimidating, Cardiology Health Care of South Florida is here to help remove the fear factor. Dr. Diego and his staff take the time to identify and understand each patient’s condition and history, and to employ the most effective tools against the disease.
Arteries and veins are the highways of blood flowing in the body, and any obstruction is a serious concern. If you are experiencing arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), your heart may be beating too fast (tachycardia) or too slow (bradycardia). In either case, the heart may not be able to pump a sufficient quantity of blood, which can cause fatigue or shortness of breath, among other problems.
Dr. Diego will check for a heart murmur and perform a physical exam. He may also order an MRI, electrocardiography, or blood tests to help diagnose the underlying problem.
