Eliminating heart disease with diagnosis, treatment, and recovery expertise
Heart disease is not a one-way street. Your own actions can "turn the bus around" if you haven't gone too far. With changes in your lifestyle -- the foods you eat, the exercise you get, how you handle the stress in your life -- you can stop the progress of heart disease. You can even reduce the plaque that has already accumulated in your arteries. The key is to catch your heart disease early and to make healthy changes now.
"The key is to catch your heart disease early and to make healthy changes now. Providence cardiologists can help you do both."
