Family History

Home   »   Departments  »  Family History

Your parent had a heart attack at 50? Should I be concerned. A family history of heart disease is an important factor but not the only one. And it’s something you should consider when determining your risk for heart disease.

You can be at increased risk if you have a parent or sibling with a history of heart disease. Whether you are aware of or believe you have a distinct family history preventative screening is important. Our team of heart practitioners have the experience to weigh all of the various risk factors — and craft a treatment plan that will help you bring that risk down.
