Clinic Hours




Coronary artery disease or myocardial infarction usually occurs in men over the age of 55, women over the age of 65, people with obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol, and those who smoke, live a sedentary lifestyle and have a family history of coronary artery disease. These are all the risk factors that do not tend to show symptoms in the early stage.

However, if patients begin to experience chest pain or chest tightness as if something is pressing on the chest, feeling fatigued, having shortness of breath, dizziness, or even unconsciousness, it could be as severe as cardiac arrest, that would mean that the arteries are more than 50% blocked. So, screening for abnormalities or checking the function of the coronary arteries in people with risk factors can detect the disease early on and make treatment less complicated.
