What is your practice philosophy? This is where our practice is uniquely different from any other local, regional and Lexington cardiology groups.

We always recommend guidelines directed therapy for your diagnosis and treatment.  The American College of Cardiology (ACC) provides a framework of evidence-based clinical statements and guidelines developed by leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine.

 

Our focus is as much on the prevention of heart disease in the future as on the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, We believe that although heart & circulation may be one of the most important structures in your body, we focus on making you feel well overall. Sir William Osler said, “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.” We strive to understands the whole patient and the context of that patient's illness.
