Cardiology

Heart Health

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women. However, with proper diagnosis, treatment and management as well as healthy lifestyle choices, many heart conditions are preventable and treatable. Our RWJBarnabas Health Medical Group cardiologists are not only highly experienced, but also compassionate and caring experts in the field.

When Should You See a Cardiologist?

Often your primary care provider will refer you to a cardiologist if they feel you need to have further evaluation from a heart specialist, or if you have a family history of heart disease or other conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure.

Some early warning signs of heart disease include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • High blood pressure
  • Chest pains
  • Indigestion
  • Fatigue

If you are experiencing heart-related symptoms, it’s important to be evaluated by a provider as soon as possible. If you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms, please call 911.
