Did you know that Heart Disease remains among the top 5 causes of death in the United States? The heart is a muscular organ which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. Blood provides the body with oxygen and many nutrients, as well as assists in the removal of metabolic wastes. Since the heart is such a complex organ it can require treatment and many cardiovascular services. We recognize that early detection can be the difference between life and death for many diseases. Screening for disease should be part of your ongoing healthcare regimen. To place your cardiovascular health first, schedule an appointment with Dr. B. Patel. Most insurance's are accepted, however, your insurance company may require a prior authorization before services can be rendered.
