What is Cardiology?

The diagnosis and treatment of cardiac diseases is a vital part of healthcare today. Millions of Americans are affected by some form of heart disease, and more are diagnosed every year.

Working with a trusted healthcare team is the key to getting the best possible care for your specific cardiac condition. Affinity Health Group’s cardiologists provide comprehensive cardiac services in a warm and caring environment.

Cardiologists combine medical expertise with advanced technology to deliver compassionate, specialized care. Affinity’s cardiologists work with patients, their families, and their referring Providers to optimize the cardiac health of each individual.

Affinity Heart Failure Clinic

Using evidence-based guidelines, the Affinity Heart Failure Clinic will focus on:

  • Education
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Cardiac rehabilitation
  • Medications

Medications will be available in the clinic to provide in-clinic interventions as well as close outpatient monitoring. By incorporating all of these things together in a dedicated, specialized heart failure clinic, Affinity providers will improve a patient’s symptoms and make them less likely to be admitted to the hospital, less likely to die from heart failure, and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.
