UCF Health’s cardiology practice incorporates all aspects of heart disease into the patient’s treatment plan, from lifestyle modifications to the latest evidence-based drug therapies.
The clinic regularly treats coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, heart rhythm disorders, lipid disorders, hypertension and cardiomyopathy. In addition, great emphasis is placed on preventative cardiology, taking every available measure to reduce the chances of cardiac episodes before they occur. Sometimes this can be accomplished with lifestyle changes like adopting a heart-healthy diet, and other times it’s done with medications.
On-Site Cardiovascular Lab
When testing is necessary, the East Orlando location is equipped with a noninvasive cardiovascular lab. On-site diagnostic services include echocardiography, stress echocardiograms, Holter monitoring and coronary event monitoring. Our cardiologist, Dr. Bernard Gros, is a Level 3-trained echocardiography physician, the highest level that can be earned.
In addition, the UCF Health cardiovascular lab earned echocardiography accreditation in adult transthoracic and adult stress testing from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). This designation ensures the highest level of quality and is required by many insurance carriers.
