I was very impressed by the professionalism of the staff and the doctor. I didn’t have to wait to be seen and the doctor took a good amount of time with me. I never felt rushed and she asked all the right questions.

Had a great experience from waling in to walking out! The doctor and all the office staff and his nurse were efficient , professional and have a great attitude. highly recommend.

This doctor is on YOUR side as opposed to on the side of the medical establishment of Las Vegas. If you want the true skinny, or open picture of the reality of what’s happening with your condition, see this doctor.

State of the Art Cardiovascular Care

If you have been told that there is a problem with your heart or vascular system (blood vessels) you need to see a Cardiologist who has the expertise and experience to diagnose and treat all types of heart and vascular issues.

If you are experiencing symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pains, or dizzy spells our highly trained cardiologist can help. From consultation to testing, We have the state of the art training and medical equipment to diagnose the issues and find the solutions that are best for you.

Most of the medical testing can be done right in our offices. We provide electrocardiography (records electrical activity of the heart), noninvasive cardiac output measurement (assesses pumping capacity of the heart), treadmill stress testing (screens for blockages in the arteries of the heart), pulmonary function testing (measures the capacity of the lungs), and even research programs that allows for quicker access to new medications and devices.

Echocardiogram, often referred to as a cardiac echo or simply an echo, is a sonogram of the heart. Echocardiography has become essential in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of cardiac patients with any suspected or known heart diseases. We use this diagnostic approach because it can provide a wealth of helpful information in a non-invasive way with no risks or side effects. The ultrasound imagery helps determine the size and shape of the heart (internal chamber size quantification), pumping capacity, and the location and extent of any tissue damage. An echocardiogram helps our doctors a picture of your heart function such as a calculation of the cardiac output, ejection fraction, and diastolic function.

Transthoracic Echocardiography (Provides a detailed ultrasound picture of the heart)
Transesophageal Echocardiography (Presents a high resolution ultrasound picture of the heart from within the esophagus)
Carotid Duplex Scanning (Screens for blockages in the arteries of the head and neck)
Peripheral Vascular Duplex Scanning (Evaluates blood flow in the arteries and veins of the arms and legs)
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasonography (Assesses the aorta for aneurysm formation, as well as, blockages)

We provide nuclear stress testing and MUGA scanning.

We use a nuclear stress test to measure the blood flow to your heart while at rest and during a time when your heart is working harder either from exertion or medication. This test enables us to see images of the areas where you have low blood flow through the heart and also damaged heart muscle.

With a MUGA scan, we can see video images of the lower chambers of your heart called “ventricles”. We are able to check whether they are pumping blood in a proper manner. We can detect any abnormalities in the size of the ventricles and also in the flow of blood through your heart.
