About Nevada Cardiology Associates

Nevada Cardiology Associates was formed in 1989 in an effort to respond to the needs of Southern Nevada residents in meeting their diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Since that time, Nevada Cardiology Associates has become widely acknowledged as a pioneering force in innovative cardiovascular practices. Nevada Cardiology Associates has been recognized by the Andre Agassi Foundation in its Exclusively Las Vegas Project, as a leader in cardiovascular care. It has also hosted the Joint California-Nevada Cardiovascular Symposia. The current seven member group brings together a wealth of highly qualified and diversely trained cardiologists. Each physician has received advanced fellowship training in leading nationally recognized programs. Our different areas of expertise

include preventive cardiology and health maintenance, cardiac rehabilitation, diagnostic cardiac testing, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and nuclear cardiac imaging. Their Cardiology Board Certified physicians serve in medical staff leadership positions in local area hospitals and organizations, as well as, conducting ongoing inpatient and outpatient research projects.

Nevada Cardiology Associates provides the full spectrum of comprehensive cardiology services. Heart problems, such as hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms, and circulatory problems are thoroughly investigated and treated with cutting edge cardiovascular care. Lifestyle changes and risk factor modification are routinely stressed in an effort to minimize cardiovascular disease progression, and under ideal conditions, to foster disease regression.

Nevada Cardiology Associates utilizes a wide array of advanced noninvasive testing to aid in the prompt diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular problems, including walking and non-walking stress testing, cardiopulmonary stress testing, nuclear cardiac imaging, transthoracic echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, vascular testing and heart rhythm monitoring. When further information is needed to precisely pinpoint the nature of an underlying abnormality, invasive cardiac assessment such as cardiac catheterization, intravascular ultrasound and electrophysiology studies may be undertaken.

Numerous state of the art interventional cardiac procedures, including intravascular ultrasound, balloon angioplasty, coronary atherectomy, intracoronary stent placement and implantation of pacemakers and internal defibrillators, may be performed to correct the underlying problem, while being minimally invasive and avoiding open heart surgery.

Nevada Cardiology Associates strives to deliver the utmost in personalized cardiovascular care, emphasizing compassion, friendliness, clear communication, prompt service, and emergency availability. This is accomplished through the commitment and devotion of the physicians and their specially trained and caring support staff. Comprehensive strategic planning is provided to maximize patient benefit, while attempting to minimize risk and the need for invasive procedures.
