Our team-based approach means more comprehensive care

We approach every case as a unified team, ensuring that each patient receives the widest range of resources and expertise.

By working together across disciplines, we’re able to offer our patients the utmost continuity throughout the course of their treatment. From the first medical exam to interventional and electrophysiology, all the way to cardiac surgery, our patients receive care under one roof by one team.

This broad offering also gives our cardiologists more options for tailoring treatment to each individual, knowing that every step in each person’s care will be handled by the best in Central New York — or even the best in the nation.

One Cardiology Checkup Can Save Your Life — and Your Family

Are you confident that you can recognize the early stages of coronary artery disease — even without any symptoms? Heart disease develops gradually and often starts with long periods of time with few or no noticeable symptoms. That’s why a routine cardiology checkup can make the difference between early intervention and playing catch-up.

As you age, and risk factors increase, more frequent general cardiology checkups are recommended. Prevention is key to living a long and healthy life, so that you can remain a part of your family and your community.

If you are experiencing signs related to heart disease, report these symptoms to your cardiologist right away. Do not wait for the symptoms to subside.
