Cardiology

What is a cardiologist?

The cardiologists at Scott & White Heart & Vascular Institute emphasize a healthy lifestyle and provide access to resources such as dietary counseling and cardiac rehabilitation to help patients achieve success. They also work closely with the heart and vascular surgeons, diabetes and lipid specialists and other physicians throughout the clinic.
