Magee-Womens Heart Program
Am I at risk for heart disease?
At the Magee-Womens Heart Program, part of the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute, we know that women’s hearts are different from men’s, and that heart disease can cause different symptoms both women and men.
We understand these differences and are dedicated to helping all of our patients overcome heart problems. Both women and men can be referred to the Magee-Womens Heart Program.
Knowing the facts about heart disease can prevent disability and even death. Regardless of your gender, a key to combating heart disease is early and accurate detection.
Our comprehensive diagnostic cardiology testing services help detect heart-related illnesses. The highly-trained physicians at the Magee-Womens Heart Program will then meet with you and interpret your test results.
Cardiac diagnostics can go a long way in helping to fight heart disease, but education is also a key to overcoming this problem.
The Magee-Womens Heart Program also focuses on patient education. The nurse manager, nuclear medicine technologist, registered nurse, echocardiographer, and medical assistants take time to discuss your concerns.
