Coronary artery disease is the most common type of heart disease. It is the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women. CAD happens when the arteries that supply blood to heart muscle become hardened and narrowed.
Sudden or gradual onset of symptoms such as Heart Attacks and Unstable Angina are both acute coronary syndromes, an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly impaired.
Acute myocardial infarction, the medical name for a heart attack, refers to a heart condition that is caused when the blood circulation or flow is abruptly cut off from the heart. The break in circulation lasts long enough to cause tissue damage or death.
Atrial fibrillation also called AFib is a quivering or irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Atrial fibrillation is a non infectious pandemic in the US. An estimated 2.7 million Americans are living with Afib.
The Watchman is a left atrial appendage occlusion device that, in appropriate patients, dramatically reduces stroke incidence on atrial fibrillation.
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a chronic progressive condition that affects the pumping power of your heart muscles. While often referred to simply as “heart failure”, CHF specifically refers to the stage in which the heart pumps inefficiently.
The medical term for fainting is syncope. Syncope is a sudden loss of consciousness, usually temporary and typically caused by a lack of blood flow to the brain. Syncopy has many possible causes from various sources, some of which may be related to heart conditions.
The newest technology in many cases will replace conventional, more invasive surgeries. We offer discovery, work-up, and replacement of diseased or degenerated heart valves -- all without open heart surgery.
Early identification and management of risk factors is the best way to head off avoidable costly problems.
Face to face engagement with the cardiovascular team is the best way to identify problems or rule them out.
Cardiovascular issues can often be managed medically and with objective data derived from exams and tests that do not require hospitalization or needles.
We offer a variety of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular imaging services in the clinic that can often be completed the same day as your visit.
Interventional cardiologists use thin flexible tubes, or catheters, to get inside blood vessels for diagnostic tests or to repair damaged vessels or other heart structures, often avoiding the need for surgery.
We investigate the electrical system of the heart and offer treatments such as medications and pacemakers.
In times or situations where patients cannot come to us, we come to you virtually.
For emergencies or severe illness, we manage cardiac conditions of our patients if they become hospitalized. See our participating partner list.
We offer same day comprehensive work ups for professionals and executives with our partners at Cor Medical.
We participate in late phase trials that allow patients access to new medications and more frequent care free of charge. Our patients help help others by contributing to a broader knowledge base.
How does radiology billing work?
Radiology services are billed by both the facility (CCC) and the reading cardiologist. The facility charges a technical fee that covers the use of equipment, the supplies, and the radiology technician (TC). Either your Cardiologist or one of the physicians of Radiology Associates will read or interpret your test and he/they will charge a professional fee which covers the actual interpretation of the exam (PC).
There are two (2) parts to every radiological test.
PC = Professional Component - The physician who interprets the study. TC = Technical Component - The place where your test was performed.
Depending on your study, and your ordering physician one of the physicians below will read or interpret your ultrasound.
Mark C. Napoli, MD
Nauman Khalid, MD
Radiology Associates Physicians
All studies performed at Complete Cardiovascular will receive a bill from Dr. Mark Napoli for the TC – technical component of your ultrasound test.
With most insurance plans, having your test performed at CCC is a much more affordable option compared to having the same test at the hospital.
