Heart Disease Care at Reliance Primary & Urgent Care

Heart disease is an overarching term referring to several types of heart conditions. These conditions typically affect the circulatory and vascular systems by causing those systems to function abnormally, affecting the heart’s blood flow and palpitations in various ways. Some conditions classified under heart disease include:

  • Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial fibrillation is a heart condition that causes an uneven, rapid heartbeat, which can increase the risk of blood clots.
  • Coronary Heart Disease: This condition occurs when the heart cannot provide enough oxygen-rich blood to the body due to plaque buildup in the arteries.
  • Heart Valve Disease: In heart valve disease, the valves in the heart don’t work correctly, causing them to open and close in the wrong directions and causing problems with blood flow.
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease: As a slow, progressive disease, it causes the blood vessels to narrow, spasm, and block and causes restricted circulation to areas outside the heart and brain.
  • Congestive Heart Failure: Heart failure happens when the heart muscle cannot pump blood consistently.

Dr. Patel can provide ways to address your condition through heart disease management. Dr. Patel will provide a comprehensive exam covering your medical history, identify problem areas and suggest changes that can help protect you from risks associated with your condition. Throughout your care, we can provide support services, diet and exercise plans, and emergency contact numbers to help improve your overall health and achieve your goals. Heart disease poses many challenges, but having a healthcare plan can help make your life easier with the help of our helpful, caring medical team.

In urgent case scenarios, Dr. Patel can provide immediate treatments if you’re experiencing early symptoms of chest pain, chest discomfort, and feelings of panic. By working with our team, we can provide quick diagnostic tests and screenings for symptoms of heart disease. We are open six days a week, Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm, and every second Saturday of the month from 10 am to 2 pm. In emergency scenarios, we offer same-day appointments and can provide self-pay options for initial treatments. Most of all, we are located about 10 minutes drive away from the Ascension St. Vincent’s Southside Hospital, where patients facing life-threatening conditions can receive additional, higher-level emergency and hospital care.
