Conditions Treated

Dr. Singer says..

Provision of cardiovascular care is inefficient and expensive. Most patients require multiple visits to doctors, hospitals and outpatient diagnostic centers to obtain diagnosis and treatment for cardiovascular disease (e.g.. you. schedule to see a doctor today, have an echo tomorrow, and a nuclear test the next day). This leads to increased cost, multiple visits and lost work time and inconvenience, as well as inefficient care and sometimes, isuboptimal outcomes.

The HeartLife Center changes all that, and offers the people of Louisville and Kentucky a comprehensive approach to all noninvasive treatment and invasive therapies for a variety of cardiovascular disorders. including pharmacologic and interventional therapy, preventive therapy, noninvasive screening and both, noninvasive and invasive diagnostic testing, as well as all available state of the art interventions, including, angioplasty and stenting, catheter ablation of arrhythmias, pacemaker and implantable defibrillator insertion and follow-up, heart failure diagnosis and therapy, that is delivered in one place.

Patients can simply walk in off the street and consult with a specialist cardiologist who is available to perform a comprehensive evaluation, ancillary tests such as Echo cardiogram, electrocardiogram, blood testing, stress testing, Holter monitoring, event monitoring, tilt table testing, outpatient ECG monitoring, nuclear imaging or CT angiography, or other appropriate diagnostic testing. By the time that the patient leaves the HeartLife Canter, in most instances, the diagnosis and the treatment course can be established.

The patient has peace of mind that the problem is being addressed, without having to go to additional testing elsewhere, saving time, hassle and additional costs
