Being told you have heart failure can feel overwhelming. However, the term “heart failure” does not mean your heart is not working, but rather not functioning as well as it should. Although heart failure is not curable, it can be treated. With the help of our heart failure clinic team, you can manage heart failure and feel like yourself again.
The Heart Failure
Clinic at Prevea Health is available to help you manage your heart failure with the care you need to live life to the fullest. We work hand-in-hand with your primary care provider and your cardiologist to coordinate your care. Our goal is to improve or maintain your quality of life, and to prevent hospital stays.
We partner with you to succeed, providing:
- Evidence-based medical care that incorporates our extensive experience, the latest research and, most importantly, the goals and values of each of our patients.
- Evaluation and coordination of state-of-the-art heart rhythm therapy.
- Evaluation and coordination in the need for ventricular assist devices (LVAD).
