Specialties

Dr. Steven W Cross has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    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.

Great Cardiologist

I moved down from Detroit, MI in 2003 and Dr. Cross came highly recommended to me by the staff at Henrico Doctors Hospital. He tweaked my meds, and man I gotta tell ya I felt so much better. If you are looking for a kind, caring cardiologist, who stays current with all new meds and treatments for heart disease, this is your man. A super person in my book.

More than a Cardiologist

I changed cardiologists as I wanted all doctors able to admit to the hospital where I live. After my annual check up as a new patient, Dr. Cross said, "Now tell me about your health in general. How have you been?" I told him about some symptoms I had developed. He reviewed my medication and recommended immediate elimination of one medication that could be causing involuntary motor movements and memory loss. He was right on target. My primary care doctor and the neurologist had not picked up on this and had attempted treatment with a medication with no impact. He also saw that a test by the prior cardiologist revealed a carotoid artery blockage, and that the test had not been repeated later, yet all I had been told was that I had HBP and high Cholesterol. I feel very fortunate that I changed cardiologists.
