Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Elkayam "LE Heart Center's philosophy is to treat each patient as we would treat a member of our own family, personally and clinically.

Prevention is important. Our medical team stresses disease prevention through lifestyle modification and when appropriate with medication. Once disease is established, the treatment and secondary prevention become more complex. We will discuss how to prevent cardiovascular disease, and will provide intervention when needed. In addition, our physicians volunteer their time to give lectures in the community that will provide detailed information on particular topics that may be of interest to you and your family.

When treatment is necessary, we will follow your medical care. Our highly trained medical providers will continue to see you on a routine basis to help manage your cardiovascular medications and life style modifications that will reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease progression and future cardiovascular events."
