Dr. Feyrer-Melk is truly something very special!

I joined Dr’s Optimal Heart Care Program in June 2011 after finding out I had sleep apnea and type 2 diabetes. I have a strong family history of cardiovascular disease and it appeared I was headed in the same direction if I could not find some kind of program that looked at my genetic risk factors and comprehensively tested my artery health to determine what my cardiovascular status was. I was 40 pounds overweight and I was well aware that 80 percent of diabetics die from heart disease. I am 65 years old and I have many things I still would like to do! Joining the Heart of Arizona Optimal Cardiac Care program was one of the most important things I’ve done for my health. The information Dr. Feyrer-Melk is able to gather from genetic and artery testing was stunning! I carried the genes putting you into the highest risk group for heart attacks and strokes. My arteries were aged 85! Dr. Feyrer-Melk created a treatment plan to start attacking the problems. Next, I met with Dr. Steve to begin an exercise program after he tested my overall physical status. So what has been accomplished in 4 months in the Optimal Cardiac Care program? I lost 40 pounds, I am motivated to exercise regularly, and my heart health is better through medication and supplements that are genetically suited to me. This program works!

I have seen many doctors in my lifetime, and I can assure you that Dr. Feyrer-Melk is truly something very special. She prevents heart attacks and stokes. She wants to work with you in her office and not in an ICU room when it is often too late. Join this program if you care about your cardiovascular health, it will be the best decision of your life.

Our health is our most important asset!

Our health is our most important asset. We spend a lot of money acquiring assets such as cars and homes, but none of these assets are as important to us as the asset of good health! Dr. Feyrer-Melk is committed to continuous learning and her optimal care program patients are the beneficiaries of this advanced learning. I compare her optimal care program to my financial advisor’s program – I put my life savings in the hands of my financial advisor and I put my heart health into the hands of Dr. Feyrer-Melk. Both protect the quality of my life! Dr. Feyrer-Melk’s optimal care program is a complete and detailed study of my heart and related functions, which is a major discriminator compared to the typical heart health provider.

In just 5 months my results have been outstanding!

I have spent many years of my life thinking, “It won’t happen to me.” Although my busy professional and personal lifestyle is fulfilling, I felt it had begun taken its toll on my health. Combine that with my Italian, type A personality, my age (over 60), and my family history of chronic and fatal cardiovascular disease — I realized I needed to evaluate my personal perspective on “it won’t happen to me.” I experienced some very light chest pain and thought that it was time to have a heart check up. A friend is a patient of Dr. Feyrer-Melk and she referred me to her practice, and that referral changed my life. After receiving the finest cardiac evaluation possible from both Dr. Feyrer-Melk and Dr. Steve, they developed a realistic prevention plan that I enthusiastically followed. In just 5 months my results have been outstanding. The markers that identified me as high risk for heart attack and stroke are now at normal levels or below! The Optimal Cardiac Care program at Heart of Arizona has empowered me to make changes that have significantly improved my life. I feel great! And when people say I look great, I can really believe them!
