- Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.<br>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.ttcqeayetrwczwezdueawsrsbdyr

Superb patient care
Self-verified patient of Dr. Steven P Friedrich - Posted on July 20th, 2016
Dr. Friedrich is a truly exceptional doctor. He listens intently and hears what you have to say. He asks probing questions and takes time to think about what he has learned about you before making suggestions or a diagnosis. He is kind and gentle, has a great sense of humor, and is very thorough in his examination. I recommend him highly and have no doubt about seeing him again if the situation ever arises. A++++++++++ from the minute I walked in the door. Thank you Dr. Friedrich for your attentive, personable, yet very professional and thorough care.
