Our Cardiology

A PET scan of the heart is a noninvasive nuclear imaging test. It uses radioactive tracers (called radionuclides) to produce pictures of your heart.

A Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) is a procedure in which a physician utilizes a small balloon catheter (flexible plastic tube) to open up a blockage in an artery that supplies blood to the heart muscle.

Your cardiologist may recommend surgically implanting a wireless cardiac monitor called a loop recorder, which continuously records your heart’s rhythm for up to three years. 

Venous ablation is a treatment procedure to help regulate blood flow by heating or freezing certain veins.

Mobile Cardiac Telemetry is when a monitor is placed on a patient to transmit the heartbeat patterns remotely and in real-time.

Know Your Heart Conditions

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Brain cells begin to die in minutes.

The term angina pectoris or angina is used to describe chest pain or discomfort, often felt like a pressure or a squeezing sensation in the chest.

Valvular heart disease is when any valve in the heart has damage or is diseased. There are several causes of valve disease.

Atrial fibrillation, or Afib, is an irregular, rapid heart rate. This can be caused by an overactive thyroid gland or other metabolic imbalance.

Venous insufficiency occurs most often in the legs and, less commonly, in other parts of the body.

Dr.De saw me today and advised me that I need cardiac catheterization for left coronary artery I was nervous and still am but he tried so hard to make me feel comfortable and he did give me comfort. I am going in on April 13,2021 to have the procedure done. As for the staff they are great but the real winner is Amy at the front desk she will do everything in her ability to help you get whatever problem you bring her way solved. As a whole Apogee medical is a top notch practice and I would strongly recommend them to anyone who needs cardiac care. My name is Edward Mohrman and I approve this message.
Ex Mea Sententia
I am a new patient at Apogee. To this point I am not impressed. My first appointment I was interviewed by a nurse and a nurse practitioner, and did not see or speak with the doctor. I don't know what the value of that visit could have been. When my first month's medications began to run low I asked the office to call in a new subscription. It took three calls from me to get someone in the office to call it in. No one from the office ever called me back to let me know the meds were called in -- very inconsiderate IMO. I was down to one day's meds before I finally got my refills. My next appt is 2.5 months from now. I'm not sure if I should ditch these guys and find a different cardiologist, or give them one more try. But if I go in for the next appt and it's a "meet and greet" like the first one, I'm done with them. I'll let you know in a few months.
