Specialties

Dr. Thomas W Nygaard has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Sent from God

I can't say enough good about Dr. Nygaard. After two heart attacks and poor treatment from a Cardiologist in Danville, Va I knew something was not right and Dr. Nygaard took the time to find the problem and I have had no issues for 11 years now. He is the absolute best! as a Dr. and human being. Unfortunatelyfor me and I am sure many other patients, he has retired from practice and has more time to do volunteer work with his wife. The man is an inspiration to me. The world would be a much better place with more people like Dr. Nygaard.

Dr. Nygaard is not only an excellent Cardiologist, but one of the best and most caring doctor there is. Even though I have moved 1400 miles from where he practices, I still consider him my primary cardiologist. I travel each year to see him for my annual check-up.

A little more difficult to get an appointment; however, this is due to the existing volume of patients that he has. I wouldn't trade him for all the tea in China. Wonderful, caring phyisican. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Nygaard. I feel, sometimes, I worry him to death with questions; however, whenever you have any issue with your heart you really do not know what to expect, what you should and shouldn't do. Every thing that comes up you wonder if it has anything to do with your heart. Each time I call or leave a message he will see that you receive a reply to your question. He is the best and Lynchburg is very fortunate to have him. I am very fortunate that he agreed to take me as a patient as I know how extremely busy he is. God Bless Dr. Thomas Nygaard
