Our team of cardiologists can help you lower your risk for heart attack and improve your overall heart health.

Dr. Ann Marie Schmidt, Dr. Edward Fisher, Dr. Ira Goldberg, and Dr. Kathryn Moore

We offer a comprehensive risk assessment for cardiovascular disease, and treatment plans aimed at helping you maintain a healthy heart. Our goal is to collaborate with your primary care doctor to address and lower any of your cardiovascular risk factors, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, with the appropriate medical treatments and lifestyle changes.

Our doctors specialize in many areas of cardiovascular care, including hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease in women, diabetes and prediabetes, blood clotting disorders, and physical activity. We care for people who are at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease, and those who have already experienced a heart attack, stroke, heart or vascular surgery, or angioplasty.

We offer basic lipid and diabetes testing, as well as testing for more advanced markers for cardiovascular risk. We also provide imaging, such as CT scans of the heart, and even at-home testing that can further evaluate your risk, such as monitors for you to take home and record your own blood pressure.

Our mission is to personalize your assessment and treatment to lessen your risk for heart disease.
