Home / Cardiovascular Conditions
The conditions that an individual most frequently comes to a cardiologist to exclude include risk of heart attack, high blood pressure or hypertension, elevated cholesterol, and risk of stroke. Cardiac conditions can frequently be excluded by means of consultation and non-invasive testing in the office.
Heart conditions in young adults are more common than most people think. Young people tend to not perform cardiac testing because they think they still have time to do so until the symptoms are too severe. Heart disease is the number one killer in women, especially because they often misinterpret their symptoms like a stomach bug or indigestion. This is why getting a diagnosis from a top cardiologist is necessary.
Living an unhealthy lifestyle filled with fast food and bad habits like smoking are not the only things that increase your risk of heart problems. The number one cause of sudden death in young athletes is Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy in which the heart muscle becomes too thick. An echocardiogram can diagnose whether your heart movements are abnormal and if you are at risk for heart disease.
Dr. Reisman and his entire staff are the best in New York City. I was able to get an appointment quickly and didn’t have to wait to see Dr. Reisman long for my appointment (less than 5 minutes). I had a very positive experience and thrilled to have found such a great Cardiologist. I am a very anxious patient and the staff was very compassionate from the front desk to all the technicians to Dr. Reisman. I would highly recommend this heart specialist to friends and family! ~ ZocDoc
