When Consulatation With Specialised Cardiologist in Required?
A cardiologist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating heart and blood vessel conditions. They work with patients to prevent, diagnose, and treat heart disease, and provide ongoing care for individuals with heart conditions.
Some common conditions that a cardiologist might treat include:
Coronary artery disease: It refers to a condition in which the arteries that supply blood to the heart become narrow or blocked, leading to reduced blood flow to the heart.
Heart rhythm disorders: Abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias, that can cause the heart to beat too fast, too slow, or irregularly.
Heart valve disease: A condition in which one or more of the heart valves do not function properly, leading to reduced blood flow to the rest of the body.
Heart failure: A condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs.
High blood pressure: A condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated, leading to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
Diagnose Heart Conditions
In diagnosing heart conditions, our center will collects your comprehensive medical history, understanding the patient’s symptoms, family history, lifestyle habits, and overall health status. We also perform a physical examination to assess vital signs and heart health. If heart problems are suspected, our cardiologist may recommend/conduct several tests, including:
Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG): A test that records the heart’s electrical activity to identify rhythm abnormalities and damaged heart areas.
Echocardiogram: A test using sound waves to produce detailed images of the heart’s structure and function.
Stress Test: A test that measures the heart’s response to physical exertion, usually conducted on a treadmill or stationary bike, with continuous monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, and EKG.
Cardiac Catheterization: A procedure that involves inserting a tube into a vein or artery and guiding it to the heart for a detailed examination.
Cardiac CT or Cardiac MRI: Advanced imaging techniques that provide highly detailed images of the heart and its blood vessels.

Mapping out a Treatment Plan in Greater Houston
After the heart issue has been diagnosed, our cardiologist crafts a unique treatment plan based on the patient’s specific condition. The treatment could comprise the following:
Making Lifestyle Changes: Many cardiac conditions can be controlled or even avoided by making healthier lifestyle choices. This could mean following a diet that’s good for the heart, committing to regular exercise, quitting smoking, and effectively handling stress.
Using Medication: There are various medications at our disposal to help manage heart conditions. These include, but are not limited to, beta-blockers, statins, calcium channel blockers, blood thinners, and ACE inhibitors.
Undergoing Medical Procedures or Surgeries: Depending on the heart condition, certain procedures or surgeries might be necessary. Options can range from angioplasty and stent placement to ablation, pacemaker or defibrillator implantation, valve repair or replacement, and even bypass surgery.
Participating in Cardiac Rehabilitation: This comprehensive program blends exercise training, education about heart-friendly lifestyle practices, and stress management counseling, all designed to assist individuals in returning to an active lifestyle.
Throughout this process, our speciaised cardiologist, Dr. Adnan, remains a close partner to the patient, working alongside other healthcare providers when needed, to ensure optimal heart health. The treatment plan is periodically reviewed and adjusted as required. Moreover, educational resources are provided to assist patients in managing their conditions and adopting habits that benefit heart health. As every patient is unique, their treatment plan is personalized to meet their particular needs and overall health.
