Cardiac Risk Factor Counseling

Heart attacks can be prevented.  At ECA, we believe that all patients should receive individualized assessment and modification of their risk for future cardiac events.   Blood pressure and cholesterol profile measurements are key to risk assessment.   This assessment can be fine tuned with further diagnostic studies included scans of the heart and other blood tests.   Our physicians and nurse practitioners all meet with patients to discuss their risk and guide subsequent modification including lifestyle changes and medications.  Dr. Wyman specializes in preventive cardiology and directs the new cardiac prevention program at Evergreen hospital.
