Philosophy of Preventive Cardiology
We’re changing everything about the way we look at the heart.
Traditional cardiac evaluations rely on cholesterol and stress tests as markers in detecting cardiac disease. Misconceptions about heart disease and stroke are that cholesterol causes heart attacks, stress tests determine cardiac disease, and that mild to moderate vessel blockages are no big deal. And, because of insurance issues, physicians throughout the country are often prevented from offering laboratory studies, cardiovascular tests, and substantive time, to help them identify and eradicate strokes and heart attacks.
No amount of disease in any artery is ever normal. Dr. Feyrer-Melk uses advanced inflammatory, lipid, genetic, saliva and other testing to comprehensively evaluate heart health and identify and treat cardiac risks before they emerge. Our Concierge practice is significant to people who want to know if they are living with heart risks, or those who need to know how best to treat the risks they are living with.
