Welcome

Welcome to the San Diego Cardiovascular Associates' web site. Our practice and physicians are committed to giving our patients, their families and other site visitors comprehensive information about cardiovascular conditions and the latest medical treatments.

San Diego Cardiovascular Associates is a progressive medical group comprised of nine cardiologists in coastal San Diego County. Our physicians` expertise covers all areas of modern cardiovascular diagnostics and interventions. This includes not only risk factor evaluation and modification, but also exercise and dietary therapies.

We also have "in-house" exercise testing, echocardiography, stress echocardiography, holter monitoring, pacemaker evaluation, lipid profiling, and nuclear cardiology. Our individual physicians are recognized nationally in exercise evaluation and prescriptions, cardiovascular research, and interventional therapeutics (coronary and peripheral angioplasty and stents, intravascular ultrasound, and other cutting edge technologies).

Our professional staff include nuclear medicine technologists, echocardiography technologists, nurse practitioners, research staff, medical assistants and front office staff who coordinate with the physicians to bring you the best in cardiac care.

Our cardiologists are associated with Scripps Memorial Hospitals in La Jolla and Encinitas offering the latest cardiovascular technology. Some also hold teaching positions at the University of California at San Diego School of Medicine and serve the community in such diverse capacities as lecturers, team coaches, sports event physicians, and chairpersons or members of hospital and medical society departments. All are involved in and committed to teaching colleagues, medical students, cardiology fellows, nurses, and most importantly our patients.

The physicians, management, and staff of San Diego Cardiovascular Associates look forward to including you in our extended family.
