Some of the common misses of acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) masquerade as epigastric pain or abdominal pain which commonly occurs in elderly female patients. Our Clinic pays special attention to the risk factors and the appropriate diagnostic modalities needed to stabilize our patients for chronic care or specialty referral. We treat and manage hypertension, arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure, chest pain, shortness of breath, and palpitations.
Cardiovascular issues can commonly be overlooked by people assuming the problem is from something less serious. You might think that pain in your arm is only soreness when it could actually be related to your heart.
Situations like this are why it’s important to see a doctor who specializes in cardiology. We can tell you whether any pains or weaknesses are something that needs treatment. We’ll run tests and diagnose the issue. Once we know what’s going on, we can devise a treatment plan including exercise, medication, diet changes, and more.
