Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Karsan "Cardiology Rapides Cardiology and Vascular Clinic provides office-based care as well as providing round-the-clock access for patients. We believe successful outcomes are rooted in accurate, timely diagnosis and data management. To collect the date required in making those critical determinations, we conduct non-invasive testing in both office and hospital settings: electrocardiograms, digitized echocardiograms, ambulatory monitoring, arterial/venous screening and all types of stress test"
