When to See a Cardiologist

Cardiologists are specialists who only work with you if you need special heart-related care or have had heart-related conditions in the past.

Your doctor may refer you to a cardiologist if you have symptoms of heart disease or have a family history of heart disease. We work together to diagnose and treat diseases of the heart, including:

  • High cholesterol

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart attack

  • Heart failure

  • Coronary artery disease

  • Arrhythmia

Patient-Centered Heart Team

We’re dedicated to creating the best care plan for you. The Sanford Heart team is made up of nationally recognized, experienced cardiologists, surgeons, geneticists and researchers. Our heart providers each play a unique role in caring for our patients.

Depending on your heart needs, you’ll partner with:

  • General Cardiologists. These cardiologists treat patients needing special heart care. They prevent and manage heart and blood vessel problems. 

  • Interventional Cardiologists. Interventional cardiologists use catheter-based treatments to manage heart disease.

  • Electrophysiologists. Focused on the heart’s electrical activity, electrophysiologists evaluate, diagnose and treat arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms) and implant pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). 

You are the most important part of the team. We will work closely with you to make sure you understand your options.
