Dr. Axel Z Zagler-Luna has the following 1 specialty
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Dr Zagler-Luna is a highly skilled, confident, and wonderful physician. I have had two cardiac procedures with him, and under his care for almost 3 years now. Dr. Zagler always keeps his patients informed, no surprises! Dr. Zagler listens to his patients, a rare quality in most physicians these days. His cardiac advice to his patients is both sound and practical to keep us heart healthy and enjoying our lives. My wife recently had diagnostic cardiac testing with Dr. Zagler's staff and they were professional and very pleasant, bring a calm to a very stressful time. Many Thanks to Dr. Zagler and Staff
I visited Dr. Zagler for persistent dizziness/tachycardia. He did all the basic tests, but was unable to find anything wrong. I was still ill, had an appointment, and his medical assistant called and told me there was nothing he could do for me so I shouldn't bother to come; also suggested I should see a psychiatrist for anxiety. Went to another doctor and was properly diagnosed (not a psychiatrist, and not anxiety). There's nothing worse than being sick and having a doctor imply you are imagining it, especially when it's your heart.
