At Cardiovascular Consultants of South Florida our cardiologists have one goal: keeping your heart healthy. It starts with understanding and controlling your risk factors for coronary artery disease and making lifestyle changes where necessary. Where disease occurs we offer a comprehensive team of Cardiologists, Vein and Vascular specialists, and Electrophysiologists to provide you personalized care. Because it makes sense to consider the heart and blood vessels as one system, our Vein and Vascular program emphasizes prevention and non-surgical intervention for peripheral vascular disease, blood clots in the legs and other organs.
Our cardiac electrophysiologists (the heart’s electrical system) focus on cardiac pacing, implantable defibrillators, and the diagnosis and treatment of syncope. We also specialize in treating varicose and spider veins. There is minimal to no scarring and most procedures are done in less than one hour. Visit www.NoMoreUglyLegs.com.
The Cardiologists at Cardiovascular Consultants take care of more heart patients than any other group in South Florida. From advanced diagnostic testing to balloon angioplasty, treatment of atrial fibrillation, to the latest in non-surgical treatment of Varicose Veins, our twenty-four Board Certified Cardiologists and Vein and Vascular specialists provide comprehensive care to over 100,000 patients. You can trust the health of your heart and vascular system in our hands.
