Heart Disease | Cardiovascular Care  Tucson, AZ

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States – with 1 in every 4 deaths the result of a cardiac condition. And it’s a rapidly growing problem with almost half of Americans at risk for heart disease across all races including including Hispanics, Caucasians and African Americans.

But the great news is that while cardiac disease can be deadly, it is also very preventable in most people – with a healthier lifestyle and proper medical care.  AMA Family Practice in Tucson, AZ offers the highest standard in heart disease diagnosis and cardiac disease medical management so patients can live longer and more active lives with a healthier heart.

Effective treatment of heart disease involves treating the whole person – not just the heart. The compassionate cardiac disease practitioners at AMA Family Practice can help you implement a number of lifestyle changes that can improve your heart health and reduce your chance of heart attack, including: medical weight loss; stress reduction; assistance with smoking cessation; dietary improvement; assistance with sleep disorders, and more.

Our medical interventions to prevent or arrest heart disease may include: medication to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides; diabetes management; bioidentical hormone replacement; and a wide variety of prescription heart medicines such as anticoagulants (blood thinners), ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, vasodilators, and others.

Our doors are always open to new patients. We also accept most major insurance plans; and for those without insurance coverage we offer a “cash-discounted” rate for self paying patients. Our goal is to provide each and every patient with the very best, most advanced cardiac treatments in the most caring environment – for health, wellness, and happiness now and for years to come.
