Preventative Medicine

A major focus of our practice at NYMA is prevention of disease. We believe that maintaining and optimizing good health is as important as diagnosing illnesses.

Therefore, we focus a large part of your visit on lifestyle, modification of diet, and exercise and stress management. Early detection and treatment of heart disease is a specific area of expertise in our practice. We have a large variety of blood tests and the non invasive imaging technology available in order to assess cardiac risk, detect problems before symptoms occur and advise treatment strategies to prevent heart attacks and strokes. Half of the people who suffer from heart attack have no warning. It is therefore imperative to identify patients at high risk. At NYMA you won’t have to ask for screening and preventative advise – it is integral to our care and concern for your optimal health.
