What can I expect during my cardiology consultation?
The Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity provides superior care and extensive diagnostic services. In addition to innovative and advanced testing and labs, your comprehensive cardiology consultation with Dr. Kahn includes thorough evaluations of your:
- Medical and family history
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Blood sugar
- Systemic inflammation
You also may undergo an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), echocardiogram, and a cardiac stress test.
Dr. Kahn discusses lifestyle factors with you like your diet, smoking habits, and how much exercise and sleep you get.
What other tools are available to screen for heart disease?
Dr. Kahn favors two noninvasive tools to screen for heart disease and help catch it in its earliest phases:
This safe ultrasound of the carotid artery in your neck tells Dr. Kahn if there’s any thickening of the artery due to plaque buildup.
This screening assesses how well your arteries function. If your arteries don’t dilate well, you might have symptoms of heart disease like fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pain, and/or arm pain.
Dr. Kahn’s signature service, the Ultimate Heart Check Up, is the most comprehensive cardiovascular exam of its kind and includes both the CIMT ultrasound and the EndoPAT test.
Am I a candidate for a cardiology consultation?
Knowing that heart disease is so widespread and is the world’s top cause of preventable death, all adults can benefit from a cardiology consultation. The American Heart Association recommends preventive cardiovascular screenings beginning at age 20.
The physical exam, health history evaluation, and diagnostics are beneficial even if you have low-risk factors, but they’re especially useful if you have:
- Excess weight
- High blood pressure
- A sedentary lifestyle
- A history of smoking
- A diet full of meat, processed foods, and sugary beverages
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kahn right away if you have chest pain, shortness of breath, chronic kidney disease, or peripheral artery disease.
But do not wait, any adult can benefit from a consultation due to the high frequency and lethality of heart disease.
