What is a cardiologist?

Cardiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating heart diseases and conditions such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, heart failure, and heart rhythm disturbances. Depending on your age and health, your primary care physician may refer you to a cardiologist for preventative screenings and to assess your risk factors for heart and vascular disease.
