Dr. Ahdab's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ahdab "Welcome to Associated Cardiovascular Physicians Group. Here at ACP heart care, patient's get a comprehensive cardiology and vascular care by our highly talented physicians. We stratify patients based on the risk to low risk, moderate risk, and high risk. For patients presenting with low risk cardiology or vascular problems, we focused on education, prevention and lifestyle modification. For patients with moderate to high risk features, we provided them a more aggressive approach to maximize their survival, quality of life, function, and minimize their pain, inconvenience, disability, and admission rate to hospitals. Our patient satisfaction and safety is a top priority to our staff and physicians. Our physicians are experienced enough to handle with high level of confidence most complex coronary, vascular and venous conditions. We give our patients ample time to express their view, understanding of their illness, and to know where are they coming from both physically and psychologically. This will help us to best manage their health issues and dissected to the point. Our website at acpheartcare is equipped with extensive literature to answer many of our patient's questions in regards of diagnosis or treatment in the office or the hospital. We encourage our patients to participate effectively in the portal of the electronic medical record to quickly and efficiently communicate and address their needs. We welcome patients from Chicago south suburbs, Chicago southwest suburbs, and west suburbs, and with most nsurances as well as self-pay patients. We have very easy payment plans, and our diagnostic cardiology testing prices are very competitive for self-pay patients and patients with high deductible."
