As a cardiologist, Dr. Joseph Cookman, DO deals with cardiac and circulatory disorders. He will be able to detect and diagnose you if you suffer from congenital heart disease, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. He has special training and skills which help them find, treat and prevent diseases concerning the heart and blood vessels. Unlike a cardiac surgeon, a cardiologist does not involve themselves with any cardiac surgery. Instead, they carry out tests and perform procedures such as inserting pacemaker, angioplasty and heart catherizations. You may be referred to a cardiologist if you find yourself reporting any heart problem. They can also provide you with advice on how to prevent heart disease.
Cardiologists will review your medical history and carry out a physical exam on you in order to provide their diagnosis. After theyve provided you with their diagnosis, they proceed to drawing up a medicinal plan for you or pick out an alternative treatment route. They can help you learn about your risk factors for developing a heart disease as well, so you can prepare for a healthy cardiac future.
