The doctors at Cardiac Specialists use cardiac rehabilitation for many of their patients who have had angina, heart attacks, valvular heart disease and congestive heart failure. Cardiac rehabilitation improves outlook and prognosis in patients who have had these and other cardiac conditions. Working closely with the nurses and exercise physiologists at cardiac rehabilitation, each patient is given a unique exercise prescription and nutritional plan which is monitored through regular contact with our doctors. This program is very well received by our patients who report feeling better after completion of cardiac rehabilitation.
*Dr Kunkes is medical director of cardiac rehabilitation, and all of our doctors are involved in overseeing the program.
