According to the American Heart Association, more than five million Americans are affected by heart failure, and an additional 500,000 are diagnosed with heart failure each year.

The term “congestive heart failure” means weakened heart muscle is causing fluid retention in the arms, legs, feet, lungs, or other organs, affecting mobility and breathing. It’s a chronic, progressive condition, but an effective management program has been shown to reduce hospitalizations and increase quality of life.

  • Overseen by a Physician Assistant with specialized training in cardiology
  • Personalized treatment plans
