Specialties

Dr. Van S Monroe Jr has the following 2 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.

Five Stars

Every time I see Dr. Monroe, he seems so concerned about me. He does not leave the room until he has answered all my questions, even asking if he can do anything for me. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a cardiologists. His office staff and nurses are very friendly and professional.

Rude and hateful doctor

He walked in the door and started calling me names. When I got upset he said I was in need of psychiatric care. He then threatened me and said I needed to change my life style. I am a bedridden woman and have 7 diseases and I needed to get up and exercise. I do yoga but that was not good enough. He was rude, hateful and thinks hevissuperior to others!

Kind and caring

I recently had a health scare and required a right heart catheterization. Dr. Monroe was kind and caring. I have a medical background, and he still took the time to sit and explain everything to me. He was prompt with scheduling. His staff was also understanding.
