Get Screened!

The Suffolk Heart Group specializes in the screening and treatment of women and cardiovascular disease. Since the majority of women who have cardiovascular disease never have symptoms (chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations) it is important to be proactive and get screened. When women do have symptoms of heart disease they might be misdiagnosed because their symptoms are different from men (back pain, neck pain, sweating, stomach pain, nausea, arm pain). Suffolk Heart group has some of Long Island’s best cardiologists with a special interest in women and heart disease. Call today to make an appointment for screening.
