Quality of Care

We strive for the highest quality of care for all of our patient. Although we are busy at Monroe Cardiovascular Associates, you will never be examined by a Nurse Practitioner or a Physician's Assistant. You will always be examined by a trained Cardiologist!! Cardiologist that spends time with you personally on a one-to-one basis instead of a Nurse Practitioner or a Physician's Assistant A Cardiologist who supervises your stress test personally instead of utilizing a Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, nurses, or physicians who are not cardiologists.


The role of prevention in heart disease can not be emphasized enough. There is clear evidence that the risk of heart disease and stroke can be reduced with the control or modification of certain risk factors. Due to the high prevalence of heart disease in our community, early screening is extremely important; ecspecially in the presence of one or more risk factors. Most of the risk factors of heart disease do not present with any symptoms, they are usually silent. For this reason, periodic screening is integral to the prevention of heart and blood vessel diseases.
