At Northwest Florida Heart Group, our cardiologists are committed to providing the highest quality care through advanced treatments, communication and patient involvement. Our doctors react 25 minutes faster than the national average to increase your chances to live from a heart attack by 83 percent. Treating and helping patients manage chronic heart failure through medication and lifestyle changes can include a pacemaker or other surgical interventions.
Atrial fibrillation is an irregular, often rapid heart rate that causes poor blood flow to the body. The goals of treatment are correct diagnosis of the cause, control and/ or reset the heart rate and to prevent blood clots. Our doctors can help you manage this condition so that you can enjoy your life.
We offer a pacemaker clinic with technicians that monitor your pacemaker and work with your physician to keep your heart pumping steadily.
Peripheral Artery Disease, the narrowing of the arteries of the pelvis and legs and Coronary Artery Disease, narrowing of the carotid artery can be managed by medication, lifestyle changes such as exercise, a healthy diet and not smoking. But when those changes are not enough, our doctors can provide a non-surgical alternative such as Stent placement.
