ProMedica Physician Group: Primary Care and Cardiology
Family medicine physicians provide comprehensive care for people of all ages – from birth to the golden years of life. Along with diagnosing and treating routine illnesses and chronic disorders, they provide preventive care services and can perform minor surgical procedures.
Internal medicine physicians focus on the medical needs of patients over the age of 18. These specialists (called internists) are trained to diagnose and treat routine and acute illnesses, chronic health conditions and complex medical disorders. They also provide preventive care services and can perform minor surgical procedures.
Internal medicine physicians can also order tests and coordinate an individual’s overall care by arranging referrals and consulting with specialists.
Cardiologists treat diseases and disorders of the heart and circulatory system. ProMedica Physician Group’s cardiologists provide a wide range of medical care including diagnostic procedures such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty and stent insertions.
They also perform non-invasive testing such as nuclear stress testing, echocardiograms, and Holter and cardiac event monitoring. These tests help to identify blockage, valve and rhythm problems.
In addition, cardiologists consult with patients on treatment options which can vary from drug therapy to simple lifestyle changes.
