Preventive Cardiology Services for the New York & Manhattan, NY, Area
Cardiology State of the Art Testing in New York City
The state-of-the-art testing available at PCNY allows us to detect cardiovascular risk earlier than the majority of physicians in the New York area. For example, we are the only practice between Baltimore and Boston with an Electron Beam CT scanner to identify the presence of asymptomatic coronary artery disease using the lowest radiation dose available. We also have other diagnostic testing equipment that is not available anywhere else in the tri-state area. We are capable of evaluating a complex mathematical interpretation of your electrocardiograms to determine the presence of even mild coronary artery disease, much earlier than that seen on a stress test. We also perform an extensive comprehensive blood panels to make highly accurate predictions of one’s cardiovascular health, often decades before they would experience issues. Individualized genetic testing also allows us to tailor the most appropriate treatment regimen and lifestyle change recommendations for you in a personalized manner.
Cardiovascular Risk for Disease
By understanding if you are at risk for cardiovascular disease, Dr. Lee Marcus of PCNY can develop a plan of action for you to avoid developing various forms of cardiovascular disease through earlier intervention. Often times, the preventive cardiology care serves as a wake-up call for patients who need to actively work to prevent cardiovascular disease through aggressive lifestyle changes, or need extra motivation to stay on prescribed treatment.
Understanding Cardiovascular Health Issues In NY
Currently, the general population of the United States has a very basic, if any, understanding of how their cardiovascular health is assessed. This includes measuring “good” or “bad” cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and taking a family history. Unfortunately, this is not enough information to identify the true risk a person has for developing cardiovascular disease – namely heart attack and stroke. The extensive testing available at PCNY allows for much more individualized results so that you have a complete story regarding your risk for cardiovascular diseases.
