Scripps cardiologists are San Diego's top choice for heart care, seeing more patients than any other health care system. They serve patients with heart conditions including coronary artery disease, abnormal rhythms (arrhythmia), valve problems, congestive heart failure and more. Scripps cardiologists diagnose, treat and coordinate patient care with physicians and surgeons who specialize in all types of cardiac conditions and underlying health challenges related to the heart. Scripps cardiologists also serve as a heart health coach, helping patients manage, reduce or eliminate risk factors for heart disease such as hypertension and cholesterol. Cardiologists play a vital role in evaluating patients, prescribing medications and working hand-in-hand with heart specialists who are part of an overall treatment plan that can include digital imaging, electrophysiology, interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery.
