Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation

To schedule an appointment or for more information, please contact us at (608) 260-2905.

At the Dean and St. Mary’s Cardiac Center, our preventive cardiology and rehabilitation services are focused around one goal – preventing heart attack, stroke and peripheral vascular disease for our patients. We start by offering a comprehensive risk assessment and then provide a risk reduction plan that is customized for each patient.

Our approach to patient care is collaborative, working with patients to promote positive lifestyle choices and prevent the reoccurrence or progression of cardiovascular disease.  We welcome patients both with heart disease and those who may be at an increased risk for heart attack because of risk factors. Some of these risk factors may include:

  • Family history of heart disease
  • Complex cholesterol disorders (high LDL, low HDL or high triglycerides) or difficulty taking cholesterol medications
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Smoking

Our multi-specialty team is dedicated to helping patients improve their health by offering them a care plan that fits their lifestyle. Every patient will receive a physical exam and complete review of medical history, and additional components of the individualized care plan could include:

  • Advanced laboratory testing
  • Cardiac testing or imaging
  • Physical activity counseling with exercise prescription
  • Dietary education
  • Smoking cessation
  • Cardiac Rehabilitation for patients with recent hospitalizations for heart disease
  • Peripheral vascular disease exercise rehabilitation
  • Lifestyle counseling and education
