When You Need to See a Cardiologist
Count on the experienced medical specialists at Brookwood Baptist Health to improve your heart health and add more years to your life. Good heart health is paramount to your survival, and part of this health is having a consistent, moderate pulse. If it is too fast, too slow, or too erratic, you can suffer from cardiac arrest or cause damage to your brain and other vital organs. When you schedule an appointment with our cardiologists in greater Birmingham, Alabama, however, you can get the advice, resources, and treatments that lead to better overall health.
Sometimes patients come to us on referral from their primary care doctor. They either notice symptoms themselves or their physician does during their assessment. You can also see us directly if you are concerned about your heart health. Recognizing the signs of heart disease, arrhythmia, and other conditions is important because it allows you to get quicker, more reliable treatment. Speak with our heart doctors immediately if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Chest Pain
- Sudden Cardiac Arrest
- Rapid Heartbeat
- Dizziness of Lightheadedness
- Shortness of Breath
Determining the Source of Your Arrhythmia
Get to the center of your medical issues when you turn to our heart specialists. Arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that can be caused by a wide range of factors. Some of these, such as high blood pressure, are mild health issues that require some simple life changes or low doses of medication. There are more pressing problems including coronary artery disease or valve disorders that require more intensive treatments.
The job of a cardiologist is to find the precise cause and do whatever is necessary to help you manage or treat your condition. The methods we use and treatments we prescribe depend on the type and severity of your condition. If it’s mild enough, we don’t want to put you through unnecessary surgeries, so we might take a more progressive approach starting with heart medicine and working through other options as necessary.
