Heart disease is still the #1 killer

Despite the overwhelming news articles recently regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, heart disease still remains the nation's top killer. It is important during this time to remember not to neglect your heart. We know that it can be scary to venture out of the home and to a physician's office or hospital, but it is important to stay proactive with your health.

Symptoms such as chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue should not be ignored. If you are concerned about any of these symptoms, we recommend that you contact your primary care physician and/or your cardiologist for evaluation. Most physicians are offering telehealth appointments at this time so that you can avoid an office visit and exposure to COVID-19.
