Diagnosing Heart Disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Because symptoms of heart disease can often be confused with less-threatening conditions such as indigestion, sore muscles or poor circulation, it is important to determine and evaluate your risk factors, so that you can take action and help protect your heart. Below are some of the tools that EMHC uses to diagnose heart disease.
