Consultative Cardiology Program

First Opinions, Second Opinions, New Options for Patients with Complex Heart Problems

consultative-cardiology-page-photoOur Consultative Cardiology Program provides an integrative approach to the diagnostic evaluation of the cardiovascular system and to the formulation of short- and long-term therapeutic strategies for cardiac patients. Our program offers all patients with cardiovascular disease or suspected cardiovascular disease access to the highest level of specialization and medical expertise.

Our cardiologists and their support staff provide individualized coordinated care plans that evaluate our patients’ needs to enable us to adjust current plans or suggest alternative therapeutic approaches when indicated. Our team routinely confers not only with patients and their families but also our patients’ primary-care physicians and cardiologists, in order to coordinate an optimal and seamless approach to care.

Our cardiologists address the full range of cardiovascular conditions and symptoms including:

  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Angina (chest pain)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart failure
  • Valvular Heart Disease
  • Heart disease with unique characteristics including those that are related to race, gender, ethnicity, age and co-existing conditions.
  • Arrhythmia
  • PAD
Manatee Cardiovascular routinely accepts referrals of patients from other medical centers to its cardiology team for consultation and assessment. We welcome patients seeking second opinions or who have questions about diagnosis or treatment plans prescribed by their current physicians experiencing difficulties or failing to improve as hoped.
