Cardiology Q & A

What is the focus of cardiology?

Cardiology focuses on the health of your heart, arteries, and veins. Together, these organs and vessels make up your cardiovascular system.

Your heart is a vital organ and the pinnacle of your circulatory system. It pumps blood through your body, maintains your blood pressure, and manages your heart rate. 

Arteries are a type of blood vessel that extends from your heart throughout the body to deliver blood, nutrients, and oxygen to all parts of your body.

Veins are a separate set of blood vessels that return the blood to your heart.

Your body depends on your cardiovascular system to function, and problems with this system can lead to serious health consequences. 

How can I promote optimal cardiovascular health?

Dr. Rieders has the expertise and unique training to help you keep your cardiovascular system healthy. Many heart problems are preventable when you adopt lifestyle habits that support your physical, emotional, and spiritual health. 

Dr. Rieders offers recommendations and support to help you revise your lifestyle and overcome:

  • Obesity
  • Tobacco and excessive alcohol use
  • High stress levels
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor diet

His scientific training means he can also help you understand and handle any genetic factors that contribute to your risk of cardiovascular problems.

Why would I need to seek cardiology care?

Seek the care of an experienced cardiologist if you have symptoms of a heart problem, like:

  • Chest pain 
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness and fatigue
  • Changes in heart rate or rhythm
  • High blood pressure
