Superior Care for Your Heart
Our Board-Certified Cardiologists and their medical team study and treat disorders of the heart and blood vessels with a goal of reducing the impact of heart disease in our community through prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.
Among the heart conditions we support in a setting that’s comfortable, convenient, and close to home are:
- Congestive heart failure
- Coronary Disease
The Right Treatment Makes All The Difference
Unusual heart flutters or sudden chest pain need a prompt evaluation with an experienced cardiologist.
Don’t let any heart condition go unnoticed or undiagnosed. Whether a routine check-up or a complex procedure, you want quality care from specialists who know your heart condition inside and out.
At Teton Valley Health Care our board-certified cardiologists offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for shortness of breath, dizziness, and other symptoms of an underlying heart condition. It’s heart care that not only changes lives, it saves them.
When To Schedule a Cardiology Appointment
Teton Valley Health Care’s Cardiologists recommend scheduling a diagnostic evaluation if you experience symptoms that might relate to a heart issue, such as:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Irregular heartbeat
If you have symptoms that come on suddenly or become severe, visit the Teton Valley Hospital Emergency Room for immediate care.
With on-site diagnostic blood work, ultrasounds, and other testing, your provider can confirm or rule out an existing heart condition, including a heart attack or stroke.
You might also need routine screenings for cardiovascular conditions if you have risk factors like a family history of heart disease, a history of smoking, or uncontrolled high blood pressure. These screenings can identify early warning signs of disease, so you can treat the condition in the earliest stages.
What To Expect During a Cardiology Appointment
Our Cardiology Team at Teton Valley Health Care takes the time to understand your personal and family medical history and your risk factors for cardiac dysfunction. We also discuss your symptoms to determine what type of diagnostic testing you need.
We offer ultrasounds and cardiac enzyme analysis through our on-site lab to identify the cause of your heart-related symptoms during your appointment. We evaluate your results and customize a treatment plan to address chest pain, shortness of breath and other symptoms.
Depending on the severity of your heart condition, you may need to take medication, change your diet, and make lifestyle adjustments to protect your heart health. More serious conditions may require hospitalization for treatment or cardiovascular surgery.
