OUR PRACTICE

At Los Angeles Cardiovascular Care, we specialize in cardiovascular disease prevention and management. We have expertise in treating coronary artery disease, high cholesterol, hypertension, heart failure, valvular disease, and arrhythmias. We offer latest technologies and procedures to ensure optimal outcomes in the treatment of heart disease.

Our Mission

Los Angeles Cardiovascular Care is committed to providing the highest level of cardiovascular care to our patients. Once you are part of our patient community, we strive to provide each patient with the attention, care, and compassion they deserve. 

 

 Our philosophy in combating heart disease is using a three strategy approach:

 

- In individuals with risk factors or family history of heart disease but no current diagnosis of a cardiac condition, our approach is to focus heavily on prevention and risk reduction.

 

- In individuals who have been diagnosed with heart disease, our focus is on educating patients about their diagnosis. We believe that patients want to be part of the decision making process and are more compliant with their treatment plan if they have a deeper understanding of their condition and the goals that need to be achieved.

 

- The third strategy is to work with patients on recovering and returning to fitness and possibly an even more active and healthy life style after suffering from a heart attack, undergoing cardiac surgery, or a hospitalization with a cardiac condition. Many patients are not sure and even fearful to go back to fitness after suffering a cardiac condition. We provide guidance and how to safely achieve this.
