Cardiology and Heart Health

The Cardiology team at NYC Health + Hospitals / South Brooklyn Health offers our patients complete diagnostic and clinical services focused on preventative care, emergency care, and follow-up care helping you keep your heart healthy.

Preventative Care

We are dedicated to providing high-quality preventative care programs and services to carefully evaluate cardiac health and offer education on lifestyle changes and medication to keep you healthy, active, and feeling great.

The American Heart Association recommends heart disease prevention and heart health monitoring early in life. The wellness team at South Brooklyn Health will work with you to assess your personal risk factors and help keep your risk factors for heart disease low.

Our highly trained heart specialists, and advanced technology also provide you with the best

medical choices to prevent or treat many conditions, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Long-term heart failure
  • Heart defects
  • Diseases of the veins and arteries
  • Surgical options

Diagnostic Services

We are accredited by New York State Cardiac Diagnostic Center with a diagnostic catheterization and a cardiac non-invasive lab. Our Critical Care Unit and Coronary Recovery Unit are staffed with full-time cardiologists and cardiology fellows.

Heart failure patients can meet with a doctor, be tested—same-day echocardiograms are available—and receive the doctor’s treatment recommendations based on the test results—all under one roof in one visit.

Our Cardiology Services include:

  • Coronary angiography
  • Heart valve studies
  • Coronary bypass angiography
  • Congenital heart disease

Non-Invasive Diagnostic Procedures

We offer a full range of non-invasive cardiac procedures to assist our cardiologists in diagnosing our patient’s heart conditions including:

  • Echocardiography
  • Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE’s)
  • ECG stress
  • Nuclear stress test imaging
  • Stress echocardiography
  • Ambulatory ECG monitoring
  • Event loop recording and tilt table studies

Emergency Care

Those with new chest pain, shortness of breath or other heart-related symptoms should seek

immediate medical attention at our emergency room. South Brooklyn Health is a Certified

Percutaneous Intervention Coronary (PCI) Center. Our team of emergency care physicians, nurses, and cardiologists can quickly evaluate and determine that those suspected of having a heart attack are directly taken for a minimally invasive procedure called Coronary Angiogram.  Recovery can occur in our nine-bed Critical Care Unit and five-bed Coronary Recovery Unit, overseen by our cardiologist and fellow cardiologist staff.

A specialized team of cardiologists and nurses are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to

take care of you promptly in these medical emergencies.

Follow-up Care

We offer outpatient cardiology services to patients discharged from the hospital for follow-up and cardiac consultation services. We also provide comprehensive outpatient cardiac rehab for our patients. We have a network of heart specialists and cardiologists to support our patients needing revascularization – a procedure used to restore blood flow to part of your heart when that flow is limited or blocked. 

Our Team

Our team of cardiologists and heart specialists are board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Whether you want information about our award-winning medical care or the outstanding educational opportunities in our highly competitive fellowship training programs, we are proud of what we offer.
